I first shared this recipe for my Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Potatoes with my newsletter subscribers (they always get my recipes + best tips first!) a couple months ago, and I’ve heard from so many of you just how much you’ve loved them! One of you even turned the leftovers into an omelet! GENIUS!
I’m often asked if potatoes are paleo, so in case you’re wondering the same thing, here’s my quick thoughts!
When I first started eating this way, I honestly became afraid of foods that weren’t considered “paleo.” I’d been sick for so long and was feeling good for the first time in YEARS. I was scared of eating something that could change that. I lived by a list of rules that someone else created, and it took me quite awhile to realize that I could actually create my own rules. I also realized that food isn’t something to be afraid of, no matter what it is.
Back then (4+ years ago) white potatoes were mostly considered “not paleo,” so I avoided them for approximately 2 years (this is the time that I stuck to living by paleo “rules”). Fast forward to now, and the majority of people now consider white potatoes to be paleo. Even the Whole30 program allows them. Times have changed. 😉
Once I added them back into my diet, I realized that they actually make me feel great! In reality, potatoes are a real, whole food, and it’s up to you if you want to include them in your diet or not.
If you’re sensitive to nightshades or are looking to lose weight, then you may want to avoid white potatoes for now. You can easily substitute yams or sweet potatoes in this Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Potatoes recipe instead! I LOVE Japanese sweet potatoes – they’re actually my favorite of any potato variety!
I’ve written a more detailed explanation of what I eat now and why in my What I Ate in a Day Post.
These Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Potatoes have a dairy-free “cheese” sauce that you’ll never realize isn’t actually cheese! It’s SO GOOD! Trust me on this one and serve it to your friends and family without saying a word!
Enjoy this recipe for my Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Potatoes!
