Skinny Crockpot Philly Cheesesteak

I have been wanting to skinny-fy and health-up this recipe for a while now. And finally this week, I happened to have all the ingredients on hand! It was super simple, tasty, and the macros are superb!

In other news, I found a coconut washed up on the beach during my run this week. I ran about a mile back to the car with it in a football hold. It was heavy, like 10 pounds lol Cross training maybe? I want to see if I can grow it into a coconut palm ðŸŒīMy husband thinks I'm ridiculous!

I have been busy in the gym too. Bulgarian split squat followed by seated banded hip abductions this morning. This superset really burned the booty ðŸ”Ĩ🍑🍑ðŸ”Ĩ I did 3 sets of 8 BSS (each leg) followed by 15 abductions. This combo is sure to make you sore!

Latest personal record attempt was a success! 120 lbs for 3 reps on row! Made for a great start to my day :)

...So onto the recipe, since that is what you came for ha! My kids enjoyed this on a regular hamburger bun. I just don't like to waste calories on buns when a thin one will do the trick. Serve alongside a fresh vibrant salad for volume!
