Choosing Lean Steak

Select cuts like sirloin, tenderloin, or flank steak, which are lower in fat and calories but still rich in flavor and protein.

Marinating the Steak

Use a marinade of olive oil, garlic, rosemary, and lemon juice to tenderize the meat and enhance its flavor without adding excess calories.

Baking the Potato

Opt for a medium-sized russet or sweet potato. Scrub clean, poke with a fork, and bake at 400°F for about 45 minutes until tender.

Toppings for Potato

Top your baked potato with Greek yogurt, chives, and a sprinkle of low-fat cheese for a creamy, satisfying, and nutritious addition.

Grilling the Steak

Grill the marinated steak over medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes per side for medium-rare, adjusting time to your preferred doneness.

Steaming Vegetables

Include steamed vegetables like broccoli, green beans, or asparagus to add fiber, vitamins, and minerals to your meal.

Seasoning the Meal

Season both steak and vegetables with herbs like thyme, oregano, and a pinch of sea salt and pepper for extra flavor.

Portion Control

Keep portion sizes in check: aim for a 3-4 ounce serving of steak and one medium potato to maintain a balanced meal.
