Publisher's Weekly Review

Hartwig (The Whole30, Whole30 Fast & Easy, etc.), cofounder of the Whole30 program, returns with a collection of 150 slow cooker recipes that comply with the program's strict monthlong regimen of eliminating dairy, grains, legumes, and sweets. Hartwig hits all the slow cooker classics with protein-heavy dishes, such as pulled pork, pot roast, chili, and stews, but there are plenty of flavor-packed meals with vegetables and fruits as well: chicken shawarma salad with tahini dressing, Cincinnati-style chili served over butternut squash noodles, and shrimp with Napa cabbage and peach harissa vinaigrette are just some of the lively inclusions followers can look forward to. Hartwig credits the fellow bloggers and Whole30 writers who've contributed many of these creative dishes, sharing their contact info as well as recommending other cookbooks and resources. Each of the book's recipes includes modifications for the Instant Pot, as well as an additional chapter of more than 30 dishes best suited for the device, such as smoky beef and bacon chili, and Chinese sesame chicken. Adherents of the program who have stocked ahead (many recipes call for specific spices as well as ingredients like ghee or coconut aminos) are sure to appreciate this time-saving and palate-expanding collection.

Excerpts

Excerpts

PREFACE I bought my first Instant Pot in 2017, after hearing so many friends rave about how fast and easy it made meal prep. I'd been using my slow cooker a few times a week, adding ingredients in the morning to be ready for dinnertime. But it wasn't always easy to chop, brown, and measure while trying to get my son ready for the day, and more often than not I found myself doing the math around lunchtime: "If I start prepping now, we can eat at eight p.m. . . ." I was sure the Instant Pot was going to be the answer--all the same delicious meals in a fraction of the time.   When I took the thing out of the box, though, I immediately felt overwhelmed. So many buttons. A steam release valve with a danger warning. A timer that counts down, THEN BACK UP--what kind of wizardry is that? I Googled a little, then stuffed it back in the cabinet and went back to my trusty slow cooker.   Once I started seeing the Instant Pot recipes my team was creating for this book, though, I knew it was time to pull on my big-kid pants, dust the thing off, and give it another go. If so many of you could learn your way around an Instant Pot, so could I . . . especially if I wanted to taste-test these recipes for myself. I asked Whole30's in-house recipe creative, Sarah Steffens, for her best slow-cooker and Instant Pot tips. (You can find them on page xxi.) After reading through her helpful hints, I realized I was overthinking it.   It's like two buttons , Melissa. You can handle that.   Following the Instant Pot instructions in the sidebar, I made my first official Whole30 Instant Pot recipe--the Chicken, Lime, and Avocado Soup from guest contributor Alex Snodgrass (page 93). It was everything I'd hoped it would be. Delicious, hearty Whole30 ingredients dumped into one pot, magically transformed into a complete meal in under an hour . . . with very little hands-on time. A little chopping, a little measuring, and BOOM, we had soup.   What TOOK me so long?   Today, I'm seeing the Instant Pot everywhere , but whether you're in on the trend of pressure cooking or in a committed relationship with your slow cooker, these kitchen tools are mission-critical for your Whole30. Sure, the program itself is only 30 days, and you could cook everything by hand in the oven or on the stovetop for a month. But in a survey of nearly 5,000 Whole30 alumni, 72 percent of them said they had retained most of the healthy habits they learned during their Whole30 program more than a year after their program was over. That means you'll almost surely still be happily cooking mostly Whole30 meals a year from now! And a year-plus is a long time to cook everything by hand on demand.   Learning to incorporate a slow cooker or Instant Pot into your weekly routine will make mealtime--especially weeknight dinners and leftover lunches--fit seamlessly around work, kids, exercise, homework, laundry, and social events. You can prep in the morning and set for dinner, as I do, or prep the night before, taking two minutes to toss it all in the next day. (Or, prep in the evening and let it cook overnight*, waking up to the delicious smell of "what's for dinner tonight?" victory.)   And if slow cooking brings to mind the heavy, uniformly brown, sometimes tough stews your mom used to make . . . think twice. We've got salads, wraps, veggie "noodle" dishes, even fish and shellfish that can be prepared quickly and easily in your slow cooker or Instant Pot. Light, fresh, company-worthy dishes with a secret--you barely did any work at all to take them from ingredients to a complete meal. And many of the recipes make extra, because on the Whole30, leftovers are gold. Plain old eggs for breakfast take on new life when topped with leftover pork belly (Pork Belly Breakfast Bowl, page 141), and lunchtime is exciting again when you're bringing in Sesame Chicken Wraps (page 20). Just be prepared for "What kind of gourmet lunch are you eating today?" from your co-workers.   Before we dive into Sarah's best Instant Pot and slow cooker tips, and the more than 150 delicious all-new recipes in this book, I'll also give you a quick review the Whole30 program basics. Whether it's your first Whole30 or your fourth, it never hurts to refresh your memory on the rules or useful tips to help you prepare for Day 1. (For a detailed guide to everything you need to know to succeed with the program, see The Whole30: The 30-Day Guide to Total Health and Food Freedom .)   I hope the recipes and cooking techniques in this book help you enjoy this Whole30 experience more than any other, getting you out of the kitchen and enjoying all the benefits the program has to offer faster and easier than ever. Happy slow (or quick) Whole30 cooking!   Best in health, Melissa   *Yes, I've seen that episode of This Is Us . I promise, today's slow cookers and Instant Pots have many features that make it perfectly safe to cook while you're at work or asleep.
