Easy Breakfast Casserole. Cut into servings and take with each morning. Trying something new: Omit spinach. Layer instead of mix together. Eat with fresh spinach.


Instant Pot Sloppy Joe stuffed sweet potatoes. Drained meat after browning.


Pistachio-Crusted Salmon with sliced tomatoes and fresh broccoli drizzled in olive oil & balsamic vinegar. Great way to cook salmon–coat it in Dijon mustard and then crusted it with any kind of crushed nuts. Can’t go wrong.


Pernil (Puerto Rican Roast Pork Shoulder) with Spanish Rice (basmati rice, peas, carrots, tbsp tomato paste, tomatoes, jalapenos, green olives, garlic, onion). Fantastic meal.





Balsamic Pot Roast with Kale Salad (double recipe). Use 4 sweet potatoes. Super easy comfort meal. Tastes like a hug.



Instant Pot Dal Makhani. Cheap, easy. If you soak the lentils, it turns our mushier but has less of a “gastrointestinal effect.”
