Invest in a pressure cooker
Want to learn about pressure cookers and how they can make your life much easier? Here are my thoughts on why you should invest in a pressure cooker today!
Pressure cookers save time
Firstly, pressure cookers are a huge time saver for people on Nutritional Balancing programs. Investing in a pressure cooker makes life much easier on Nutritional Balancing programs! The amount of vegetables required to eat each day can be very time consuming to cook, especially if you have many mouths to feed like I do!
Pressure cookers cut cooking time down dramatically- by 50% or more! And 90-95% of nutrients are retained! You can cook anything that can be steamed, boiled and braised in them. You can brown your meat first, then add all your cooked vegetables. After a few short minutes (4-6) they are all cooked. Much less time! The food is also more nutritious!
Casseroles, stews, and curries are all delicious from a pressure cooker. If you are cooking for small numbers, you can cook a big batch of vegetables and then enjoy them for your next 3 meals of the day! You can cook so many different things in them, but I concentrate on meat and veggies, or just veggies.
Pressure cooker size
I have invested in a large 12L size pressure cooker. It feeds my family of 6 for one meal. The bigger the better, so that there is less time spent on cooking/preparation throughout the day for you. Electric and stove-top pressure cookers are available in various sizes. Search the internet to ascertain which size is best for you.
Stove top or electric
Mine is a stove-top, as they don’t make electric ones big enough for my family! It is just a big pot with a special pressure lid. You can use it like a normal saucepan. The pressure builds up when you place the lid on, and then once cooked, you release the pressure through a valve. It is very safe and easy to use. It is noisy as the steam escapes, but this only lasts one minute. Search the internet to work out if an electric or stove top pressure cooker is best for you.
Stainless steel pressure cookers
Lastly, choose a stainless steel pressure cooker to avoid unwanted toxins from teflon or the like. You are working so hard to regain your health and happiness, you don’t want to add toxins back in again!
I hope this helps many of you cut down your cooking time, and therefore have more time to spend with your loved ones.
