If you’re family is like mine in spring time we are at a stale spot with our meals. It seems like we’ve exhausted all of our winter meals to no end and yet we aren’t QUITE ready for the fresh food of summer.
This is often the time of year our menu needs a refresh. It’s also the time of year we seem to the busiest. Between school activities, extra work opportunities and family obligations, we seem to be running from place to place with little time to plan out a healthy meal. Not to mention the longer days and nicer weather, which leaves us outside longer with less time to cook.
These circumstances make a perfect excuse to use the InstantPot. If you haven’t used one, they are kind of amazing. Essentially it’s a pressure cooker with many options that make cooking really quick and clean up really simple.
I wanted to share with you a round-up of some of my favorite healthy recipes that use the InstantPot.

This one is Paleo and Whole 30 approved! Plus it's gluten free and dairy free. Cheryl at 40 Aprons shares that this soup is comforting and creamy. Great comfort food. It takes just 30 minutes to put together.
3. Instant Pot Mongolian Beef
