Keto Philly Cheesesteak Recipe

Some of the common misconceptions about being on a keto diet are that if you just focus on lowering your carbohydrate consumption then you are allowed to have as much or as little protein as you like.

In other words, not much thought or importance is given to the amount of protein one needs to consume. That’s not how a keto diet works. Let’s go over why protein matters and how much is the right amount.

Our bones, connective tissues: hair, skin, and muscles are all made up of proteins. There are 10,000 different proteins in our bodies. When our bodies digest protein, it is broken down into tiny molecules called amino acids. 

Some of these amino acids are essential and the human body is incapable of producing them on its own.

Put the skillet on high flame and let it become hot. Add the ribeye shaves to the skillet, season them with salt and pepper. Turn down the heat to medium and let the ribeye cook thoroughly.

Add the onion and capsicum back to the skillet and mix everything together.

Step 6

Slice the provolone into thin slices and add them to the egg wraps followed by the cooked meat, onion, and capsicum.
