Do you wish you could cook more meals at home, but you’re too overwhelmed by life? Have you tried slow cookers in the past, and are either too confused or just not impressed by the results?
Pressure cooking has been around for centuries, but for many, the method remains a complete mystery. It was used a lot during the Great Depression, but since the era of fast and frozen food took over, pressure cooking has been mostly used in countries like India and the Middle East.
It is time to bring pressure cooking back into the American mainstream and see the greatness that is being offered through cookers like the Instant Pot, which represents the method’s shining moment. Pressure cooking works by tightly-sealing food and liquid inside an airtight pot. The built-up pressure actually raises the boiling point of water, speeding up the cooking process.
This speed preserves more of the nutritional value of food, making pressure cooking the healthiest cooking method there is. Using the Instant Pot is convenient, fast, and produces extremely healthy and delicious meals.

Meet Vanessa Olsen, proud author residing in Waterloo, Ontario with her affectionate cat, Nellie. She graduated from Ryerson’s prestigious School of Nursing in the spring of 2010 and now works as a sports nutritionist. As a child, Vanessa was known in her hometown of Gilford, Ontario for growing her own veggies in the backyard and captaining many different sports teams. It is no wonder she grew up to be the health nut she is while helping others with her health nut knowledge.
Her job requires patience and a lot of research. Every work day, Vanessa educates athletes on different areas of diet, nutrition, and exercise. Each athlete is very unique, having distinct lifestyles, eating habits, training schedules, medications and supplements. All these elements need to be taken into consideration before an applicable action plan can be put together to better their health and performance. In a typical work week, Vanessa works with up to 30 different athletic clients.
When Vanessa isn’t teaching athletes how to up their game, she can be found at the gym upping her own. Her protein powder collection is impressive – it’s usually the first thing she shows off when guests come to visit. This goes without saying that her favorite room in the house is the kitchen. She has a passion for creating and preparing her very own home-grown, nutritious recipes – many of which can be found throughout her books!
