Cottage cheese & toasted brown rice salad

This healthy crunchy feast is the greatest comeback for all those who’ve been told that healthy is boring. This is my ‘healthy’ & crunchy response to fried bad asses. My biggest inspiration for cooking healthy is my Son. This one goes out to him, for taking his very first steps!
