Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches

Saturday, May 16, 2015
An easy recipe for Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches and why it's important to incorporate 25g of protein into every meal as part of a healthy diet.

This post is sponsored by The Beef Checkoff in conjunction with a social media campaign through Sunday Supper LLC. All opinions are my own.

This month I've been participating in The Beef Checkoff 30 day Protein Challenge

It's amazing how much better my body feels when I'm consuming 25-30 grams of protein at Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.


It's helped me cut back on midday and late night snacks by helping me feel full longer.

We've always tried to consume plenty of protein each day to help maintain our weight and build muscle as part of our well balanced diet but I didn't realize how much of a difference consuming enough protein in the morning and at lunch can affect how I feel for the rest of the day.

I've found I have more energy in the mornings on the days I start off with plenty of protein.

After being unable to participate in cardio this last year and a half I know that proteins played a significant role in me maintaining my weight along with a specially developed exercise plan by my Physical Therapist.

Consuming enough protein has been shown to help build muscle and reduce body fat along with healthy eating and exercise.

For me a strict diet isn't a good option because I love different foods to much but The 30 day Protein Challenge has been easy to participate in because I can still consume the foods I love like these Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches for an easy to make hearty lunch.

Here's how I make Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches:

  26. While these look good, as someone who lives in Phiily, I can assure you no legitimate cheesesteak will ever come with bell peppers on it. Hot peppers or sweet peppers, but never bell peppers.
