These Healthy Instant Pot Recipes are quick and easy and can save you time making breakfast and dinner.
In case you've been living under a rock, the (affiliate link*->) Instant Pot has virtually taken over the food world... or at least the side of it devoted to quick and easy dinner recipes. In case you aren't one of the few people who's bought one and you're not sure if you need one more appliance on your countertops, read this post from Sally at Real Mom Nutrition to see what she DOES and DOES NOT like about her Instant Pot.
Some people say the Instant Pot is a multi-functional appliance that will become your new best friend. And for good reason -- it's a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker and more....all rolled into one!
But with all that convenience comes an awful lot of recipes that don't necessarily fit the bill for a healthy dinner around. So we've rounded up our favorite Healthy Instant Pot recipes for you to try from the bloggers here at Healthy Aperture. Everything from breakfast to dinner to side dishes!
To get you started, we suggest something simple (but delicious!) like these Cinnamon-Raisin Steel Cut Oats. The flavor is AMAZING. (Grab the recipe at the end of the post)
