Best Healthy Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbooks

As you may or may not know, my first cookbook, the Healthy Meal Prep Instant Pot Cookbook, came out in June of 2019. It is an authorized Instant Pot cookbook and it was so much fun to write. It has been the most amazing experience to have people writing to me and letting me know they are making and enjoying my Instant Pot recipe book.

While I was writing the book, I had the experience to review a whole bunch of other Instant Pot cookbooks. There are so many good ones! I love that you can find whatever kinds of recipes you are looking for, from Mexican flavors to meal prepping to weight loss. I tend to go for simple pressure cooker recipes.

This post includes my top six favorite healthy electric pressure cooker cookbooks (some affiliate links included).

1. The Healthy Meal Prep Instant Pot Cookbook by Carrie Forrest, MBA, MPH in Nutrition

If you’re looking for meal prep ideas and how to add more healthy meals into your diet, then this is the book you want to buy! I know, because I wrote it, ha ha. But, seriously, I included all of my favorite recipes that all fit within a clean eating diet plan.

You’ll find recipes for Instant Pot Sweet Potatoes, Teriyaki Chicken, Lemon-Garlic Shrimp Scampi, and so many more. Each recipe is perfect for preparing ahead of time and storing in the fridge for up to several days. If you have the cookbook, would you write a review of it on Amazon? Thank you so much!

2. From Freezer to Instant Pot Cookbook by Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough

Instant Pot Freezer cookbook

This book is so innovative and practical! The pressure cooker is the ideal appliance for cooking foods from frozen, and this is the cookbook to tell you exactly how to do it. I often cook foods like frozen ground beef or Instant Pot Frozen Chicken Breast, but this book takes it one step further and shows you how to make whole meals from frozen food items. It’s a game-changing strategy for busy folks.

3. Affordable Paleo Cooking with Your Instant Pot by Jennifer Robins

Affordable Paleo Instant Pot cookbook

Jennifer has two books about paleo cooking in the Instant Pot, and I couldn’t recommend them more highly. Her recipes are approachable, healthy, and super delicious, and she has a practical way of writing that I just love. Since one of the main complaints about a paleo diet is how expensive it can be, this budget-friendly book is perfect for helping you to save money and eat healthy. It’s a must-have healthy cookbook for paleo and real food diets.

4. Instant Pot Miracle Six Ingredients or Less by Ivy Manning

Instant Pot Miracle cookbook

This book is one of the first cookbooks I got when I was writing my own cookbook. I like to cook simple dishes, and so the 6-Ingredients aspect appealed to me and inspired me to keep my recipes simple. Not all of the recipes are gluten-free or dairy-free, but there are enough ideas in the book to make it worthwhile.

5. Amazing Mexican Favorites With Your Instant Pot Cookbook by Emily & Rudy Vidaurri

Instant Pot Mexican Cooking cookbook

This book comes from a fellow real food blogger, Emily Sunwell-Viaurri, and her chef husband, Rudy Vidaurri. If you like Mexican food that is also healthy, then you are going to LOVE this book. I could eat from this book several times a week and never get sick of the recipes. They are accessible and totally delicious.

6. Lose Weight with Your Instant Pot by Audrey Johns

Audrey is another blogger friend who is an accomplished cookbook author. Audrey’s first book about weight loss made it to the best-seller’s list, and I was thrilled when her Instant Pot cookbook came out. If you like healthy recipes that are on the lighter side, then this is the book for you. The recipes are easy to make and are made using commonly-available ingredients.
