For 30 days this month we're exploring Whole30, the 30-day reset and refocus on whole foods. Whole30 isn't a diet or a judgmental labeling of foods as "good and bad." It's actually a simple reset that has helped many of our readers cook more and figure out the foods that make them feel their best. Read more about our coverage here.
We're big fans of the pressure cooker, so it's no surprise that we love leaning on it to help us prepare Whole30-friendly recipes. The 30-day plan calls for a lot of pressure cooker-friendly foods like eggs and meat, which means utilizing one allows you to get your meals on the table in less time. Whether it's smoky pulled pork or creamy coconut chicken curry, here are seven great pressure-cooker recipes that are Whole30-friendly.
With a pressure cooker you can make Whole30 pantry staples, like chicken broth, in just two hours. But even better is that it also allows you to make main dishes that are meaty and satisfying in as little as 30 minutes.
