I don’t believe in diets or any sort of particular way of eating – I believe in eating everything (in moderation) and being happy with what’s on your plate. Now, I have an appetite for just about everything – which means that I can overeat a plate of fruits, oatmeal, cake and French fries alike! So the method that I enjoy the most and turns out to be the most reasonable – one plate servings. This is as close to the French way of eating – have everything on your plate which includes bread, butter, creamy sauces, fried foods, and lots of wine. And if you’re scorning, please remember how good they look!

So this is an attempt for a good, wholesome meal in one plate with the right balance of protein, fibre and carbs. The cottage cheese steak is marinated in yogurt and then coated with delicious AL Chipino NY Deli Cheese nacho crumb and grilled to perfection on a non-stick pan. And served with a side of roasted carrots and beans.
