Many popular Instant Pot recipes are naturally keto-friendly: Fall-off-the-bone meats, succulent soups, and tender vegetables. Once you get the hang of the controls, it’s easy to switch up your Instant Pot recipes with different flavors and ingredients as well. The Instant Pot is keto-friendly for sure — but is it Bulletproof?

Is the Instant Pot Bulletproof-friendly?

The Instant Pot is a Bulletproof-friendly cooking method — consider it “yellow-green” on the Bulletproof cooking spectrum. Since it cooks well below 300 degrees, proteins and fats stay intact during the cooking process without extended heat exposure.

The main risk for Instant Pot recipes occurs with scorching at the bottom of the pot where the heating element is located. If you watch for overcooking, use enough liquid, and cook with antioxidant-rich herbs, your meals will be much more Bulletproof. If you cook in the green zone most of the time, you can still enjoy foods cooked with caution-zone methods now and then.
