I love love love my Instant Pot for cooking healthy whole-food plant-based meals; especially rice and beans!

I use the 8-qt model, but most people can get away with the 6-qt.

Let me know if you'd like more information on this indispensable kitchen small appliance*.

I've been drinking celery juice every day for over a month, and I love how good it makes me feel (and, dare I say, look)!  And I love my masticating juicer from Tribest.  Click below to check out all of the models.  (I have and use the very economical SHINE.)
