Make weekly meal prep in your Instant Pot easy with over 50 recipes and 7 weekly prep plans
Becca Ludlum is a recipe creator, self-confessed healthy food snob, and owner of the My Crazy Good Life website where she helps readers live their healthiest lives through cooking advice, delicious recipes, and helpful meal prep tips. Her blog holds a top ten ranking on Google for "meal prep Instant Pot recipes" and her recipes have been featured on multiple websites including Delish, Brit+Co, Cosmopolitan, Eat This, Not That!, the Disney Food Blog, Better Homes & Gardens, and Huffington Post.
"Two convenience cooking trends combine in this glossy cookbook filled with familiar flavors. Here, the Instant Pot multicooker gets a real workout in marathon (3-5 hour) meal prep sessions yielding dozens of servings. With careful, step-by-step instructions, Ludlum guides cooks through the process of prepping ingredients during the pot's cooking time, then transferring cooked items to single-serving storage containers before reloading the pot for the next phase. Ludlum's omnivorous menus each include a breakfast and three meals more suited to lunch or dinner, with portions to serve a family of four for a week. Though part of the efficiency is in recipes that share common ingredients, flavor profiles are distinct, which will avoid the common "everything tastes the same" complaint in less thoughtfully constructed OAMC ("once a month cooking") or other bulk cooking plans. Particularly useful are the shopping lists and ample information on maximizing efficiency and crafting personalized meal plans. A full afternoon of prep for weekday health and convenience is a trade-off many home cooks will gladly make." -Booklist
