Instant Pot Paleo Recipes
Welcome to instant pot paleo recipes. Updated for 2020 and including lots of new paleo ideas to make in your instant pot or other brand of electric pressure cooker.
I am an Instant Pot Junkie. I am also a Paleo addict. The two just belong together like salt and pepper. Whenever I fall off the Paleo bandwagon, I feel terrible.
It is like my body goes into shutdown mode. I always suffer from a bloated stomach and look heavily pregnant and lose all the energy that the Paleo way of life gives me.
I also suffer from gluten intolerances and I am obsessed with eating vegetables and that suits me and paleo perfectly.
But I also have many, many readers here on Recipe This that don’t do paleo and this is about me and my fellow Paleo instant pot users to have a special place to go to cook instant pot paleo recipes.
What Is Paleo?
But first, you must be wondering what Paleo is and how it fits in with healthy Instant Pot Cooking? Well the infographic below is fantastic for describing it. Think of it as a less restrictive low carb diet. Many people avoid carrots and sweet potatoes on low carb diets yet its allowed on paleo.
As you can see, instead you eat meals that are loaded with vegetables, use healthy flour substitutes, such as Bobs Red Mill, use honey and maple syrup as your natural sugar source and eat quality organic meat.
For example, getting your meat from Butcher Box. As well as this healthy fats like extra virgin olive oil are extensively used in cooking.
To replace cream and milk, it is normal to use coconut milk instead and this often gives a much better flavour to your cooking.
Processed foods become something that you used to do, and you get your carbs naturally through root vegetables and other foods.
Below you will find my top 10 favourite instant pot paleo recipes that I recommend you start your instant pot paleo cooking with.
