Healthy Pressure Cooker Recipes Meal Prep Solutions

In my opinion, meal prep is essential to eating healthy. Having healthy, ready to eat meals available when you need them is the key to avoiding making impulsive choices that you will regret later. Meal prep takes the guesswork out of healthy eating, and using the Instant Pot helps makes meal prep even easier and take less time.

And what makes it even better is that in the Instant Pot, you can cook foods from frozen without having to thaw them first.

This means you can prepare any of the delicious healthy Instant Pot Recipes in this collection and simply store in the freezer until you’re ready to cook. Imagine preparing a few days or even a week’s worth of meals in advance, knowing you can let the Instant Pot do the work on those hectic weekdays.

Meal Prep Storage Solutions

There are many different storage options available, but these are the ones I come back to again and again and work best for all my meal prep needs.

  • Glass Meal Prep Containers with 1 and 2 Compartments – Having 2 compartments is perfect for those build-it-yourself lunchbox ideas, or when you prefer to keep flavourful items separate. And single compartment containers are just the thing for making up meal prep bowls. These glass meal prep containers are freezable, microwavable, and dishwasher safe.
  • Reusable sauce cups with lids – to keep your food from getting soggy, it is important to store salad dressings and salsa, etc. separate from the other food until mealtime. The 1-ounce size will right inside the larger glass containers.
  • Reusable Utensils there are lots of cute, packable reusable utensil sets to choose from. Some even come tucked inside a cloth napkin.
  • Reusable Water Bottlestay hydrated and healthy with these fun portable water bottles.
  • Insulated Lunch Bag – pack up your glass container, utensils and water bottle in this insulated and easy to carry bag and head out the door!
