...Want a tasty and healthy meal that's ideal for breakfast, lunch or a snack? I made these cheesy broccoli pancakes the other day and they are sensational! I've just had the last lot for breakfast - you simply pop them in the toaster and in a couple of minutes your meal's ready.

I had them for lunch on the weekend with salad and chilli jam:

Pop over to Healthy Helpings and get the recipe. Better still, click on the Healthy Helpings thingie over there on my sidebar and buy Michelle's recipe book*. You won't be sorry.

I'm having a lot of fun cooking at the moment - I hadn't realised how much of a rut I'd slipped into with my food. Sometimes all it takes is a few new recipes to spark things up and reignite your love affair with healthy food. Somebody smack me over the head next time I forget that, OK?

Here's an example of what I'm eating at the moment, in case you're interested. Today's menu:

Breakfast: Cheesy broccoli pancakes with a little chilli jam
Snack: Baked caramel-walnut pears with honeyed yoghurt 
Lunch: Chinese style chicken stir-fry packed with veggies
Snack: An apple
Dinner: Tandoori chicken with steamed greens (probably broccoli and beans) & pappadums

Nothing boring about that lot - and it comes in at a smidge under 1200 Calories, so I have room for an extra snack if I'm hungry after dinner. You've gotta love that!  :)

The baked caramel and walnut pears sound divine!

Mmmm mmmmm. I love cheesy broccoli and these look great. I really need to get a non-stick pan though. I have to use hepas of oil with everything or it just sticks like crazy and becomes cheesy, broccoli mush. :-/

You might want to check out the new study linking non stick cookware to heart disease.... I haven't had a chance to hunt it down yet; heard something on the radio this morning. :/

The pancakes looked good until I saw they included broccoli. I know it could be a way to get more veges into me, but.... I just couldn't go there.

Your day looks very healthy. Well done.
