We tend to define healthy as simple, whole food ingredients. I think it's more compatible with a healthy lifestyle for the time it saves and the chemicals you don't need as well. A study of compliance to exercise showed that the closer someone lived, the better they did. You have to keep it realistic.
Red Curry Paste
I totally used a store-bought red curry paste. My wife buys whatever she finds, she has no preference, nor did she when she grew up in Thailand. I honestly, can't tell the difference. Freshly made curry paste though, that's different. You can totally taste it, the freshness of the flavors. Below is our recipe for homemade, you can find it in the Asian section of most stores or here, on Amazon.
What you will need
If you don't already have an instant pot you will need one. You will also need the trivet that comes with it. It's the wire thing you use to handle the egg molds safely to put them in and get them out. You can also buy some egg bite molds for less than $10 on Amazon or other cooking supply sites. Other than that, you just need the ingredients. which you can find below.
You can adapt the ingredients to add more vegetables without changing the taste too much. I used onions because I like the texture and flavor they add in eggs. I didn't like how they mixed with the red curry though and wouldn't do it again. Mod, my Thai wife, said she liked it so it's one of those subjective things. You can use whatever veggies you like, chopped small and in equal proportions.
