Philly Cheese Steak Stuffed Peppers

A QUICK brand-new CFC spin on a meal that will definitely make everyone feel HAPPY to be home tonight for dinner!

Ground beef is something I stock up on when I find a good sale, making this meal budget friendly.

Sauteing the onions and mushrooms together really gives these low-carb stuffed peppers all the satisfying flavors of that traditional cheesesteak you’re craving while keeping it lighter.

The entire family enjoyed these stuffed “cheesesteak” peppers! That’s a BIG win when you’ve got 6 teenagers/young adults at home!

This recipe is pretty versatile, so use the type of peppers, onions, and ground meat that YOUR family loves, and it’ll turn out GREAT!

Did you know:
🍄Mushrooms have cancer-fighting properties. Mushrooms are immunity-boosters, they can help lower cholesterol, they’re high in B and D vitamins, and can help relieve inflammation.

To take advantage of all the available health benefits of mushrooms, you really should cook your mushrooms.

Here’s why:
“The cell walls of mushrooms are tough, making it difficult for the digestive system to get to all the nutrients inside them. Mushrooms often contain chemical compounds that can interfere with digestion and nutrient absorption. Sufficient cooking breaks down the tough cell walls, inactivates the anti-digestive elements and destroys many toxins,” according to WebMD.

🥩If you eat beef, you might want to consider making sure it comes from grass-fed cows!

A few highlights:

Grass-fed beef offers up to 5x the amount of omega-3 fatty acids as conventionally raised beef.

It’s also higher in conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a type of fat that appears to be linked with a lower incidence of some chronic diseases.

Plus, it’s higher in vitamins A, E, and antioxidants compared to beef from cows that were fed grain.

You can buy grass-fed beef in most supermarkets … but a nearby farmer’s market/local butcher can help you to find a great local source.

✅Because grass-fed is a little leaner than grain-fed beef, cook it at a lower temperature for a shorter time to avoid damaging the omega-3s.
