Instant Pot Ribs

Instant Pot Ribs

Ribs are delicious, but I don’t always have time to do them low and slow over the grill! And I’m from upstate New York, so I don’t care too much about being traditional with my barbecue ;) With the Instant Pot, you can have fall-off-the-bone ribs ready in 30 minutes! A friend told me about this hack recently and I had to try it! This is my Fix-approved take on the recipe :)

Southwest Scramble

Southwest Scramble

I am doing 80 Day Obsession again, which is a combined fitness & nutrition program. It requires timed eating of different food groups. This Southwest Scramble makes a GREAT pre-workout and/or post-workout meal on the program! It also is freaking delicious and a great healthy breakfast option even if you are not following a timed nutrition program. I love that, with minimal meal prep, this recipe is so easy to make, even if you’re getting up SUPER early to eat and workout before work, like me! It only takes ten minutes or less.

Instant Pot Chicken Salad

Instant Pot Chicken Salad

Chicken salad is a great clean eating recipe to meal prep for lunches! I make a big batch of it and my husband and I will eat it for lunch (or snacks!) all week long. I love the surprise sweetness of the dried cranberries in it. I also love the versatility of chicken salad - you can put it in a lettuce wrap, make it into a sandwich, top a salad with a scoop, or even just eat it straight out of the bowl. This is my third (I think?) recipe where I’ve made shredded chicken using my Instant Pot and, if you couldn’t tell, I’m in love. It’s an effortless way to make moist, delicious shredded chicken! (Sorry if you hate the word “moist”!)

Instant Pot Chicken Curry

Instant Pot Chicken Curry

My last name is Kerr and I love making puns, so I of course had to do a chicken “Kerr-y” recipe! Hahaha. Bad pun, I know. This recipe is based on a shrimp curry recipe I found this past summer and loved. We’ve been having really busy weeks lately getting ready for the school musical (I am the director and my husband Sawyer is the set designer), so I’ve been meal prepping lunches AND dinners. I’m trying to keep these make-ahead meals interesting, so I pulled out that old shrimp curry recipe and modified it to be made with chicken, so it’ll keep & reheat better, and using my Instant Pot, to save on meal prep time. I love the turmeric in this dish, not only for the color, but for the many health benefits, such as anti-inflammatory properties, pain relief, improved digestion, and improved liver function! I recently listened to a podcast on The Model Health Show all about how important the liver is to your body’s functionality. It was a really fascinating episode - listen to it while you make this meal!

Buffalo Chicken Meal Prep

Buffalo Chicken Meal Prep

My secret weapon for fat loss is, and always has been, meal prep. If I'm crunched for time or feeling lazy, my food is right there, ready to reheat for lunch or dinner. And then I have no excuse to stray from my meal plan! I have always loved Buffalo chicken (especially since so much of my family is from Buffalo, NY!). And I am so excited that this is an Instant Pot recipe - it cuts down on my weekend meal prep time like crazy! If you're looking to reduce your carbs even more, you could swap out cauliflower rice. And this could also easily be paleo if you use cauliflower rice & paleo mayo! Happy meal prepping! <3
