Pressure cookers use heat and moisture to slowly cook some of the most nutritious meals all at home.
It’s the ultimate hands-off way to cook and requires very little effort while providing a healthy weight loss meal to help fill you up, burn calories, and give you energy.
Unfortunately, not everything you put into a pressure cooker will make up a weight-loss dish. Sometimes too much salt or oil is used. At other times, what you’re putting in isn’t lean enough. We’ve all got to be careful!
Here are six healthy low-calorie meals you can make in your pressure cooker, and that can help with weight loss.
Fajitas are all about unwrapping a warm multi-grain tortilla and laying atop a mix of tasty ingredients.
In your pressure cooker, you can toss in everything and let it cook without intervention. Tastes gently fuse together and you end up with a colorful collaboration between lean cuts of steak, peppers, and spice.
Wild rice is a fine dish to make in a pressure cooker and it is very easily customized according to taste.
Choose a lean meat, some herbs and spices, and select veggies. Mixed together, you have a highly nutritious meal. Just be careful with portions. Rice can be calorie-heavy. Be sure to store some for later.
Cheese soup is a mix of your favourite cheeses, ground beef, carrots, potatoes, and select vegetables.
It’s super delicious and in small portions isn’t going to take a huge chunk out of your daily calorie intake. There are plenty of ways to adjust a recipe like this according to the sorts of things you enjoy eating or to make it even more low-calorie.
Sometimes the best weight loss meal is just a bowl of steamed vegetables. Try some broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, carrots, and similar things. These are all high in fiber and filled with minerals and vitamins.
For some added taste, feel free to add in some herbs and spices which cost next to nothing in calories.
Oatmeal is a very low-calorie dish. A half-cup is only 150 calories and is filling. That said, oatmeal is very plain.
Try adding some apple pieces and cinnamon into the mix. An apple is another very important weight loss tool and can be used to infuse taste into something lacking or to cover up an undesirable taste.
Creamy Chicken with Spinach
Creamy chicken is one of the most delicious and meaty dishes you can make in a multi-use programmable pressure cooker.
Add in some extra veggies like cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, or potatoes for extra nutrition. The creaminess of the sauce can be adjusted according to how you like it. Be sure to count the calories though as you’re dropping things in.
