MEGA flavorful Instant Pot Shrimp Meal Prep, a comforting and nutritious meal, perfect for the weekdays!

Instant Pot Shrimp Meal Prep Bowls!

For some meal prepping has become a way of life (or a better way of living life). Sure it has many amazing benefits such as…

  • time saver
  • allows you to eat on a budget
  • help you stick to your healthier goals
  • avoid eating out
  • super convenient, and more!

BUT is meal prepping for everyone?

The easy answer is no. Nope! As fantastic of an option as this is, meal prepping isn’t for everyone. For instance, I have a large family so the most I can stretch out a meal is one-more-day (at best!). While I don’t meal plan often, I do make enough dinner so Ron and I can have lunch leftovers.

Some other scenarios might be your personality… Just the other day I was chatting with a friend who confessed she couldn’t meal plan to save her life! Are you the type of gal who likes to decide on what to eat based on how you feel that day? Well, you are not alone!

Instant Pot Shrimp - Meal Prep Bowls!

However, the other day I was really in a mood for brown rice and shrimp, which is not very appreciated by the rest of my family, so I decided to make an Instant Pot Shrimp Meal Prep for me, myself and I!

Selfish reasons!

  1. I made this tonight for my husband and I and it was absolutely delicious!! I couldn’t believe my husband even ate anything without chicken in it! My only question is, I think I may have over cooked the shrimp. I got cooked frozen shrimp and defrosted it. Should I have not bought cooked or was that correct? Thanks!!

    1. I am so happy to hear that you guys and enjoyed this recipe Jessica, it’s so nice to change up the menu sometimes! Yes, next time buy raw shrimp but either way I don’t think you can go wrong! hugs 🙂
