As we welcome a new season, we can take the time to re-commit to our health goals. And what easier way to do it then to add some delicious (and super simple) recipes to your arsenal? The Instant Pot has been heralded by food bloggers, busy moms and home cooks for it’s simplicity in preparing delicious one-pot meals. And it is an especially great tool for those trying to lose weight.

Food blogger Brittany Williams, who lost 125 pounds in a year with the help of her Instant Pot, is sharing light and easy make-ahead recipes from her cookbook “Instant Loss: Eat Real, Lose Weight: How I Lost 125 Pounds” to help us get our cooking schedules back on track and put healthy meals back on the menu.

Italian Stuffed Bell Peppers by Brittany Williams

These delicious little peppers taste exactly like pizza, oddly enough. My husband isn’t a bell pepper fan but he really enjoys these — I call that a big win! They’re also great for using up leftovers proteins and veggies.
