    Looks like a great appetizer; what kind of feedback do you want?

    The only critique I feel okay about giving is about the cheese: yellow cheese is not naturally colored, and pre-shredded is usually coated with crap to keep it from sticking to the other shreds.. I would try to find a pastured/aged/raw cheese and shred yourself! Other people can critique your nutrients and macros and sciencey stuff.

    Chicken looks great! With the broccoli, did you steam it and throw the shredded cheese on top? You could try instead tossing in oil of your choice and salt, and oven roasting 400F for 30 minutes, put the cheese on during the last couple minutes so it melts. But the broccoli will get so crunchy and delicious in the oven, it would also be great without the cheese.

    I was going to say it looks like a nice side salad. Where's the steak?

    The same reservation as goes for the artificially colored cheese goes for cottage cheese. They are normally made with artificial goo to make them goey. Try finding the dry curd cottage cheese with the only ingredients listed being milk and bacteria. Or you can try goat cheese

    LOL - exactly what I was thinking. 1 pound is the amount of meat you should start with, not the weight of everything (including the plate)

    To answer the question though, it looks pretty good. As Kwaggz and Leida said, change up the cheese(s) and you will make it a great meal.

    Is there a reason you're aiming for a certain weight for your food?

    Honestly, on these boards I've learned to be un-phased by the dietary restrictions... at a guess it's PHD?

    Needs something red/bright orange/purple on the plate. Don't forget your rainbow.
