Instant Pot- Beef Stew (Whole 30/Paleo compliant)

I have been on the Instant Pot craze for a while. Then EVERYONE seemed to finally get it- finally get the awesomeness I was talking about. Even though I am a health and wellness consultant.. there is one thing I love- SUGAR. So I started the whole 30 plan of eating (I hate the word DIET). This way of eating is supposed to reset your cravings- hopefully 🙂

Today I was craving Beef Stew- bad. All the recipes I looked up for the instant pot were too involved. I am using an instant pot for a reason!!! (cause I am lazy lol). So I made up my own- easy, simple, and fast. Not to mention delicious and healthy!
