You may not be able to use your instant pot for every meal. If you can only use it for one meal, then make it breakfast. It is one of the most important meals of the day and it is usually the meal where everyone is at home and starving. If you want to use the instant pot for breakfast, but you may not know what healthy breakfasts would be the best for you and your family, consider the following breakfast options that combine superfoods and your instant pot.
Coconut Steel Cut Oatmeal
Overnight oatmeal has become an increasingly popular dish, but you don’t need overnight when you have your instant pot. Steel cut coconut oatmeal is packed with superfood properties and can give you a great start to your day. All you need is steel cut oatmeal, coconut milk, fresh shaved coconut, cinnamon, water, and bananas. Bananas give you a shot of potassium and a serving of fruit. Cinnamon, especially fresh ground, gives you a boost to your immune system but it also helps to regulate your blood sugar. Combined with the power of steel cut oatmeal you will be ready for the day.
Breakfast in a Jar
Sometimes you want something quick and easy that each member of the family can grab and go with. A breakfast in a jar is a great option and can be loaded up individually for each person. If one person loves avocado, then you can add it as a superfood boost. If another person prefers lots of vegetables, you can do that too. The basic recipe of the breakfast in a jar for the instant pot is to layer egg along with different ingredients in small mason jars. Leave the jars uncovered and start on high pressure for 5 minutes. Switch to the NPR setting for 5 minutes and your breakfasts are done.
Breakfast Rice Pudding
Rice pudding allows you to get in a good source of carbs and to fill those carbs with superfoods for the day. In fact, one of the base ingredients for rice pudding is cinnamon. This gives you a good dose of superfood that allows you to regulate your blood sugar and help your metabolism kick in. You can replace traditional milk with coconut milk for more vitamins and minerals. It also removes the possible antibiotics that may be found in traditional whole milk recipes.
These are just a few ideas for you to work with. You can expand on these ideas and change them up to work with your family. Remember, the ideal option is to use superfoods to create the meals that work best for you.
