Over 20 Healthy Trim Healthy Mama Instant Pot Recipes!


Have you heard of the Instant Pot? I've had pressure cookers in the past, but never one like this – this thing is incredible! Easy to peel hardboiled eggs, frozen meat cooked in minutes, easy soups and stews…the list goes on and on. Since we, like so many, are incredibly busy, the Instant Pot has become an incredible time saver. I really needed a go-to list of Trim Healthy Mama Instant Pot recipes, so I put one together and decided to share with you. 

Update: I have a list of Instant Pot Basics here, if you need some ideas to stock your fridge and freezer!

I use the Trim Healthy Mama way of eating, and utilizing the Instant Pot has made healthy eating so much easier, especially when it comes to the basics like eggs, beans, rice, and meat. One of my best time-savers is to use my kitchen cooking day to make a big batch of brown rice, then a batch of black beans, then a batch of chicken thighs or breasts. (By the way, I'm not compensated in any way by Instant Pot…I paid for mine myself and I just wanted to share it as a useful kitchen tool!)

Here is a list of 20 of my favorite recipes that can be made in the Instant Pot and work for Trim Healthy Mama. Most of these recipes are Paleo friendly, too. If you know of more, I'd love to hear about them in the comments!

If you don't feel like clicking each of these links, I have a new Instant Pot Pinterest Board, where all of these recipes are pinned in one place!

Instant Pot Carne Guisada – THM S – Sub xantham gum or glucomannan for potato starch to make this THM-friendly.

P.S. – I've had several people contact me and want to know which Instant Pot I have, so here it is: 

I am asking for this nicer version for my birthday, though – it's bluetooth enabled, which means you can enter codes and get specific results without having to visit it repeatedly (for example, when I make bone broth I have to turn it on and off again multiple times. This isn't a problem, but I have to plan to do it when I'm home to babysit it):

  1. Is this the same as the Power Pressure Cooker XL? Do you think the recipes/cook times would be comparable? My dad just ordered one of these contraptions, and I hadn’t really thought about getting one. But now that I’ve seen this, I might have to take his for a test-drive!!!

    1. It’s not the same, but most of the linked recipes have instructions for different types of pressure cookers.

  2. Can these recipes be cooked in a regular pressure cooker? Or are they specifically created for the InstaPot?

  3. Which one do you have. I have been burned buying without recommendations. I would love to know which one you are using.

    1. I bought the Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1. It’s about $130 on Amazon right now, and I had to save up for awhile, but it’s by far my favorite kitchen appliance right now and I think it’s really worth the money.

  4. Great list! I juse got an Instant Pot for Cyber Monday (and want to get another on Prime Week).

    One thing, you may want to change the title for the Sausage and Chicken Stew. The website linked has removed Gumbo from the name because she got so many comments about it not being gumbo. It is an excellent stew, and we will make it again- but it isn’t gumbo. Tomatoes and carrots don’t belong in a gumbo and there is no roux, okra or filé. I am hoping to figure out a good, low carb version of gumbo – just not there yet.

    1. Thanks for letting me know! I like that recipe a lot, so I printed it and have it in my kitchen for reference. I didn’t know the name had changed. 🙂

  5. I’m curious what to do with frozen chicken breast in my electric pressure cooker. Thanks! I’m also a homeschooling mom:)
