Blitz Chess #396: Nimzo-Indian Defense, Classical variation

With the classical variation of the Nimzo-Indian defense, white avoids having their queenside structure damaged by Bxc3. The queen is now prepared to make this recapture from c2. A downside however is that the white queen is deployed very early, and she can feel uneasy at her post if black reacts energetically in the center. How exactly can black try to exploit the white queen position, if at all? This was a 5|0 time control game, where I was playing with the white pieces.
