Psst…We just started our Instagram account, and wanted to let our fans know about it with a great Instant Pot giveaway!
By now, you’ve probably heard about the latest kitchen cooking tool – Instant Pot. But did you know that this gadget can transform your diet? For real!
As a dietitian and member of the national media, I get sent all kinds of stuff to taste test and try out. While one of my coaches was gushing about the benefits of her Instant Pot, I was skeptical but curious. How could something that seemed like a souped-up slow cooker be so revolutionary? Then I bought one.
Since then, I’ve become an Instant Pot Believer. I love it and am constantly telling people about what I’ve made in it and how easy and fast it works its magic.
The pros are many. It acts as a slow cooker, rice cooker, saute pan, steamer and yogurt maker. You can make just about anything in it. From soups and stews to pot roasts, carnitas, breakfast burritos, cheesecake, strained yogurt, shepherd’s pie and more. And, in case you need some inspiration, there are 750,000 fans on Facebook showcasing their creations with the IP.
The IP has a stainless steel interior and cooks everything really fast. I mean really, really fast. Brown rice takes about 22 minutes, steel cut oats ready in a ½ hour! The speed at which the IP makes recipes is what why I love it so much. Just when it’s about 4:45 pm and I think I don’t have time to whip anything up for dinner, I remember that I can always make something healthy in the Instant Pot in less than an hour. Even a whole chicken will be fall-off-the-bone done in less than an hour.
This is important for your overall diet quality and health because the more meals you make at home, the more control you have over your overall nutrition. Studies routinely show that people who eat meals at home have higher quality diets and are significantly less likely to be overweight or obese. Bottom line: Cooking is good for your health!
