Instant Pot and Ketogenic Diet

Juggling a healthy lifestyle with quick and easy meals can sometimes be a struggle! Using an Instant Pot is our secret weapon to help us stick to our low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle and it can help with quick family-friendly meals!

There are so many Instant Pot ketogenic recipes for dinner that go well beyond eating something like a roast. And not only does a pressure cooker help get dinner on the table fast, but it also makes weeknight cooking and meal prep super easy.

Days when you have a little more time on your hands, mixing in some keto crock pot recipes is a great idea too.

I wasn't sure if I'd ever break the barrier and get an Instant Pot, but after enduring a hot, dry summer with no air conditioning, finding an alternative to make low-carb meals that didn't involve the oven or an all-day watch was a must.

Need a New Pressure Cooker?

If you don't yet have a pressure cooker:

Having the proper resources on hand such as these instant pots make it easier to stick to your low-carb or keto diet and have meals prepared for the week!

Whether you're craving meatballs, soup, chicken verde, chili, or pork chops, you'll definitely find low carb, ketogenic instant pot recipes you'll love in this post.

Instant Pot Ketogenic Recipes

These keto instant pot recipes are from our site Whole Lotta Yum and by other low carb foodie websites. They're easy family-friendly dinners we make frequently!

Instant Pot Chili with Kielbasa

31 Easy Instant Pot Keto Recipes - Whole Lotta Yum (2)

At first glance, you might assume a low-carb, keto-friendly chili is simply traditional chili without the beans. That isn't the case at all my friend, and this version is so hearty and chock full of delicious goodness, it'll quickly become a favorite in your home too.

In addition to classic ground beef, the low-carb chili adds kielbasa sausage, which takes it to an entirely different level. The swap of mushrooms for the kidney beans keeps it full of flavor and chunky. Trust me when I say this will become one of your favorite Instant Pot ketogenic recipes!

8 Minute Instant Pot Beer Brats

31 Easy Instant Pot Keto Recipes - Whole Lotta Yum (3)

This simple recipe for low-carb beer brats is very popular on our site. Cooking bratwurst with butter and a light beer under pressure is beyond delicious!

You can use your favorite beer, of course. We used Michelob Lite since it only has 2 carbs per bottle. While you can skip the beer entirely and use chicken or beef broth instead, using beer adds so much flavor and doesn't overpower the sausages at all.

Our kids weren't fans of crockpot beer brats since they could taste the beer, but now that they're older, making pressure cooker beer brats has become a family favorite!
