When my children were younger, I tried my best to be the super-organized mom who never forgot anything. I had a full-time chiropractic practice, and I had two small children in two different schools whom I had to drive every morning, so it was a bit chaotic before I went to work. As you can imagine, sometimes dinner plans were foiled because I forgot to take the meat out of the freezer before rushing out the door. Regrettably, I’d resort to processed or fast food like take-out pizza or macaroni and cheese from a box.

But this is not the case anymore. Since we've been cooking real foods and mostly allergy-friendly or Paleo foods, my cooking game has changed quite a bit. And especially now that I use Instant Pot almost daily, it's gotten even better.

I've collected 75 of my family’s favorite meals for No-Thaw Paleo Cooking with Your Instant Pot and I’m sure your family will love them too. And since I found Instant Pot to be a game changer in simplifying cooking, I am sharing my tried and true recipes and cooking frozen meat tips to help you cook healthy meals quickly for your family.

I know the book is about using frozen meats but can I use the book for cooking thawed meats?

Of course! The recipes are great for making dishes that your family will love, regardless whether they are using frozen or defrosted meat. You'll just have to adjust the time to 'normal' cooking times for different meats! Easy peasy! If you have any questions about the cooking methods or times, email me and ask! I'll be more than happy to help you!

I have an older (or newer) Instant Pot model. Will the recipes in this cookbook work?
YES. The settings for time and pressure settings are for any Instant Pot model.

I don’t have an Instant Pot but a different brand pressure cooker. Will these recipes work in my pressure cooker?
YES, they should, although some of the instructions are specifically for Instant Pot, like names for the parts (i.e. float valve) and button on the Instant Pot panel ("Pressure cooker" or "Manual" on the Instant Pot), but the pressure level and cooking time work the same way in other pressure cookers.
