INSTANT POT MACRO FRIENDLY JAMBALAYA
January 5, 2021
Would you believe me if I told you that you could eat jambalaya and still be on track toward you fitness goals? Well, you can! It’s all about BALANCE. We used chicken breast instead of thighs, used a precise amount of sausage to limit the fat, and the carbs come from white rice and the dry (oil-less) roux that we used to create this dish.
This meal is delicious, EASY, meal prep friendly, and most importantly- will not get in the way of you reaching your goals! Added bonus: it’s a hit with all 3 of my boys!
