21 Low Carb Instant Pot Recipes to Simplify Dinnertime

When you come home from work or from shuttling the kids to and from their activities, dinner is often the last thing you want to tackle. Top that with sticking to your low carb diet, and it’s all too easy to just give in and grab take-out or fast food from the drive-thru. But these Low Carb Instant Pot Recipes will save the day! You can make dinner quickly and easily, and because you’re using the Instant Pot (which requires little to no supervision), you can help the kids with their homework, tidy up, or relax and watch TV while your dinner is cooking.

Low Carb Instant Pot Recipes for Dinner

One thing to keep in mind: Not all low carb instant pot recipes are quicker to make than say, a stove-top dish, as far as time spent getting it from pot to table. However, I’ve found that because the instant pot allows me to just toss the food in and let it cook without standing over the stove, stirring, etc., it’s a time saver. It allows me to multitask, and that’s an essential for any busy mom!

To speed up instant pot cooking, use meats that are already thawed. But… you don’t have to! Did you forget to set your frozen chicken in the fridge the night before? No problem… the instant pot can still cook it quickly! Don’t you just love pressure cookers?

Anyway, let’s get to those recipes.
