Instant Pot Meals for Busy Moms:
Some of you may remember that I got my Instant Pot a very long time ago and did not start using it until recently. Why? Because I did not need to cook for a whole family. I only had my son, who was a baby and my husband’s work required traveling. So I basically needed to cook for myself. I was making nice salads, quick (30 minute) soups, grilled meats, stove top rice and low carb desserts and we were all good!
Things have changed in the last couple of years. My son is older and eats almost like an adult and I have an almost 2 year old daughter. My husband does not travel for work and we are currently in Europe. I do need to cook for a whole family, while having my girl at home with me and still trying to work on my blog. My recipes have shifted towards more family friendly, healthier meals. And more importantly I enjoy creating these.
So when 4 o’clock hits, I need to quickly start and finish cooking something for the evening. It is best if it is finished by 5:30 pm, so we can have dinner on time.
My Instant Pot And Air Fryer have turned into my best friends and go to choices for weeknight dinners.
