    Have you heard of Meghan Markle’s genius zucchini bolognese recipe? The one that takes OVER FOUR HOURS to make? Of course you have—that’s why a bunch of you have asked me to make a speedier Instant Pot version! At the request of those persistent Nomsters, I’ve created this simple and delicious Whole30-friendly Instant Pot Zucchini Bolognese recipe that takes just a fraction of the time, and is a whole lot meatier. (Because PALEO.) So if you’ve got a bumper crop of zucchini in your garden and you want to eat like a royal, this recipe is perfect for you!

    Before she became a fairytale princess, Meghan Markle wasn’t just a Hollywood actress—she had a side gig as a food and lifestyle blogger. One of her recipes that went viral after her wedding was a simple pasta sauce that she made with zucchini (or courgettes, for you proper Brits), onions, olive oil, water, and a bouillon cube. According to Meghan, the trick for a creamy, dreamy sauce was just to cook everything low and slow for 4 hours.

    But who has 4 hours to babysit a pot on the stove? (Certainly not Meghan Markle—at least not these days.) When one of my readers asked me if I knew of an Instant Pot hack for Meghan’s recipe, I started brainstorming ways to make this recipe Whole30-friendly and significantly cut down the cooking time. Plus, to add some protein to this dish and make it a complete meal, I wanted to beef up the sauce (pun intended).

    After numerous attempts, I finally arrived at this simple and delicious Instant Pot Zucchini Bolognese recipe. I replaced the chemical-laden bouillon with my umami-packed Magic Mushroom Powder, and tossed in a pound of bulk Italian sausage for extra protein. Best of all, this recipe can be made from start to finish in an hour in an Instant Pot. I’m super chuffed!

    You can serve this meaty sauce on your favorite veggie noodles, gluten-free noodles, or even regular old pasta (I won’t tell anyone of your Paleo heresy), and you’ll be amazed at how tasty and simple it is. Thanks for the inspiration, Duchess of Sussex!

    Serves 4

    Ingredients:

    Equipment:

    Method:

    Grab your Instant Pot or pressure cooker and turn on the Sauté function. When the metal insert is hot, pour in the olive oil.

    Toss in the diced onions…

    …and cook, stirring frequently, for 2 to 3 minutes or until slightly softened.

    Add the Italian sausage and break it up with a silicone spatula.

    Instant Pot Zucchini Bolognese by Michelle Tam https://nomnompaleo.com

    Cook the sausage until it’s no longer pink.

    Dump in the zucchini, minced garlic…

    …and 1 teaspoon of Magic Mushroom Powder or Diamond Crystal brand kosher salt. (The salt won’t add extra umami, so you may want to add a few drops of fish sauce or a couple of dried mushrooms to the pot for extra savoriness.)

    Stir well.

    You don’t need to add any extra liquid. Trust me—the zucchini will release enough liquid for the contents to reach high pressure. Lock the lid and program the Instant Pot to cook for 35 minutes under high pressure.

    When the sauce is done cooking, you can wait for the pressure to release naturally or you can manually vent it if you’re impatient.

    The zucchini and onions should be fork-tender and easily mashed with a spatula…

    …to form a chunky sauce.

    Instant Pot Zucchini Bolognese by Michelle Tam https://nomnompaleo.com

    Taste the sauce and adjust the seasoning with additional Magic Mushroom Powder, salt, or freshly ground pepper. Stir in the juice from half a lemon and taste it again. (Always, always, ALWAYS taste your food and season accordingly!)

    When the sauce is ready, grab a spiralizer to prepare some zucchini noodles (or grab some ready-to-go spiralized veggies at the store).

    If I’m serving this sauce on zoodles, I drop the raw spiralized zucchini straight into the pot and toss ’em around until the hot sauce softens the zoodles to my liking.

  • Error with your booty discovered (Daily newsletter)

    Post From http://www.stayfitbug.com/the-fitness-bug/error-with-your-booty-discovered-daily-newsletter/

    Buzzers… Wednesday…

    Today… @ error with your booty…  Is another day of living a good #boutine for me. You can see what it looks like, from Monday to Thursday, if you follow the FB stories on the profile link at the end of every newsletter.

    It’s new day though. So let’s get into it…

    A continuation of that Q & A on Monday

    Another thing that came up in that convo…

    Is the fact that I can personally look at anyone, and give an exact time frame @ how long the results will take. So… We’re going to look at the ‘before’ pics, from the hall of frame archives… From specific body types.

    And then explain…

    #1 How long it will take to become at least 60% S-curvish

    #2 How we will approach… Turning that body type ‘S-curvish’

    Remember… In S-curve world. We make this process fun. Fun… Which kicks in at any time after the first 30

    days.

    This is where the Lifestyle and Results phase comes into play.

    Results phase = Faster results
    Lifestyle phase = Slower results

    So the time frame @ how long. Will always be between two dates. Like 1-3 months.

    Both phases are needed… In order to successfully stay on the wagon. Too much of one or the other… Is what will cause you to fall off.

    Let’s begin (All ‘before’ pics can be seen on the > stage 3 link via Morebuzz/Or hall of fame on the same page).

    #1 Angie (A lot of fat to lose)

    Noticeable results: 45-60 days
    At least 60% S-curvish: 9-12 months 

    In order of what we focus on, during that time period…

    – S-curve bodyweight circuits.

    – The protocol S-curve meal structure.

    – Eating S-curvishly… Decreasing the total calorie intake slightly.

    – Weighted S-curve bodyweight circuits.

    – Eating S-curvishly… Without increasing or decreasing the total calorie intake.

    – S-curve weightlifting workouts.

    #2 Vic (Lower belly focus) 

    Noticeable results: 7 days
    At least 60% S-curvish: 2-3 months 

    – Eating S-curvishly without increasing or decreasing the total calorie intake.

    – Weighted S-curve bodyweight circuits.

    – A focus on Tailored Daily Exercise videos, using effective lower belly exercises

    #3 Yani (A lot of weight to gain)

    Noticeable results: 14-28 days
    At least 60% S-curvish: 3-6 months 

    Eating S-curvishly… With a plan to greatly increasing the total daily calorie intake, over time – It’ll happen…

    As long as we focus on…

    – S-curve weightlifting workouts and strength and exercise progression module (99% of people do not put this to great use, when help isn’t present).

    #4 Pamela (Butt growth + Less fat)

    Noticeable butt results: 2-3 months
    At least 60% S-curvish: 3-6 months

    – Eating S-curvishly… With a plan to greatly increasing the total daily calorie intake, over time – It’ll happen… As long as we focus on…

    – S-curve weightlifting workouts and strength and exercise progression module (99% of people do not put this to great use, when help isn’t present).

    – A focus on TDE videos, using effective butt growth exercises.

    – A strong focus on the upper butt.

    To conclude 

    You’re seeing all of this… So that you can enrol yourself into S-curve membership. And NOT for me to enrol you.

    I’m just there to guide you through it and hand hold you along the way (Still my main role in S-curve world).

    Just remember the big picture goals @ highlighted in > yesterday’s newsletter.

    What’s trending in S-curve world today?

    – Becoming S-curvish + Shredding to smexy > shenanigans.

    – The S-curve = > The letter S

    – High quality > selfie sticks
     Current focus @ S-curve formula variations> ‘Interval phase’ and ‘Just fix my #boutine’
