Losing a good amount of weight requires time, dedication, will power, and a whole lot of help. I write a lot about different tools that have helped me on my journey to losing 60 pounds, and this one is NUMBER ONE.
I remember a scary incident when I was little with a pressure cooker. It blew up and left beef stuck to my Grandma’s ceiling…lol I never thought about using one before, probably because of that, and then I starting seeing those infomercials with that crazy annoying dude and I started getting curious.
So I started researching and decided to go with the Instant Pot. It was love at first site, and after I realized how flippin’ easy it was to use I was hooked.
It is a new way of cooking, so there was a learning curve, but once you get the basics down the possibilities are endless.
There are a couple of things to keep in mind: You might see all these “5 minute chicken!” and “10 minute Pork Roast!” things flying all over Pinterest. I hate when bloggers do that because people get discouraged when it isn’t just 5 minutes.
Your pressure cooker has to come to pressure, which honestly can take 10 minutes sometimes. Some recipes need to come down from pressure on their own, which can take 15 minutes.
No, this is no time traveling wonder that will always have your dinner on the table in 5 minutes, but it will make making dinner much, much easier.
And more delicious. The flavors are infused by the cooking method making things taste better. Also once you have your prep done you can just walk away and let it do it’s thing, like a slow cooker but your dinner will be done in a half hour instead of 4 hours.
