Having the right kitchen tools can make meal prep and cooking not only faster but also more enjoyable. For example, Instant Pots help transform inexpensive cuts of meat into tender morsels without much work for quick, nutritious weeknight meals.

These hearty Instant Pot recipes are all high in protein, providing at least 30 grams per serving. This makes them satisfying enough to fill you up so you can stay on track with your health goals without spending hours in the kitchen.

    Turned off by focus on dead animals as source of food….this is bad for mind, body and spirit as well as our planet. Time to get with a 21st century GREEN program!

      Can you recommend an instant pot recipe or two with your criteria and over 30g protein? Thanks in advance!

        I don’t have an instant pot, but I would imagine chili would be a great option. I make one on the stove or in the slow cooker that is beans (kidney, pinto, black), diced tomatoes, and TVP or a ground beef substitute. I’m not sure what the exact nutrition info is but i would imagine the protein content is close to 30g per serving.

      God gave us cows,chickens, pigs, venison and the like for a reason……to eat! Not to mention they are good for you and provide the body with many vitamins, minerals and aminos that keep the body healthy. In other words true meat products pastured raised and finished without GMOs are nutritious.
      Ive yet to meet a healthy vegan. Gotta go now and get that delicious ribeye off the barbie.

        Hey there, I’m a healthy vegan (now you’ve met one). I’m a healthy weight, run 10ks, and get my blood work checked regularly without any issues. It can be a big diet adjustment but it’s very possible to get all the vitamins and nutrients you need.
        I was raised eating meat also, so I know many people don’t agree with veganism. Regardless of what you label yourself I think it’s great for people to reduce their meat intake for the betterment of the planet, animals, and health. There’s a lot of benefits that can reduce your risk of diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and some cancers. Just keep an open mind and try something new every once in a while
