In my 50s and succumbing to the inevitable signs and symptoms of menopause, as well as the daily stresses of motherhood, step-motherhood, pastor-wifing, and's now time to move myself up the line in my list of priorities! Taking care of others should not come at the expense of taking care of oneself.

-I want to feel - physically and emotionally - healthy and whole!
-I want to have control over food, not allow food to have control over me.
-To lose 25 lbs.
-Combat and prevent health issues.
-To LOVE a healthy lifestyle to the point I'm never tempted to go back to unhealthy habits.
-To live long and to the fullest!
-And, well...yes, damn it!...look smokin' hot naked!!

Electric multi cookers ie instant pot
Hey Jeri. I'm very new to pressure cooking/Instant Pot'ing (lol) but I can tell you that the IP cannot be used for canning. You can cook your veggies and sterilize your jars, but you cannot actually pressurize/seal the jars. And I haven't tried making yogurt yet. Trying to find just the right coconut milk recipe as I am completely dairy-free now. Very cool on the '70s yogurt maker! Smile

Electric multi cookers ie instant pot
I just purchased an Instant Pot this past week and I absolutely love it. But I don't use it for my current dietary needs, I use it to cook for the kids, and my husband who is on a keto WOE. I love how FAST it serves up a meal! I cooked a 4lb sirloin tip roast with carrots, onions and wine sauce in less than an hour...and it was as tender as if I had cooked it in a slow cooker all day. A little intimidating to use at first and a slight learning curve, but after you make one or two things in it, you get comfortable. There is a Facebook community with over 1M members with tons of recipes, encouragement and helpful tips for newbies. I say pull the trigger and get one! (I purchased the IP Duo Plus for its yogurt function.)
