No Carb Philly Cheesesteaks (Keto, Paleo)

Print

You won’t be able to get enough of these Philly cheesesteaks! The bib lettuce wrap is a perfect bread replacement and the pepper, onion, mozzarella, steak mixture is absolutely delicious!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

These Philly cheesesteak's are a great option if you are on a low-carb, paleo or ketogenic diet as they only have 2g of net carbs! Each serving provides you with 19g of protein to help you feel satiated and thanks to the bell peppers, each serving has 234 mg of potassium, making these a great post-workout meal given the protein and hydrating potassium!
