Need a brekki shake up?

Yum, I tried a new breakfast this morning I just had to share. Again this recipe comes from Michelle Bridges new cookbook Eat to Lose Weight. I can't wait for Sunday to see the new series of The Biggest Looser. Love the recipes in Michelle's extract in this months Australian Womans Health. Hope the hype surrounding the new series proves true where they concentated on all aspects of weight loss especially on food and cooking as compared to previous series where we saw a lot of the exercise.
This breakfast is very different to what I usually have, and I loved it!
Spiced Pear and Ricotta Toast
Serves 1 @ 353 cals 1478kj. Sorry sat fat not stated.

2 slices wholemeal bread
100g lowfat ricotta
1 tsp honey
1/8 teasp ground ginger (or freshly grated for extra zing)
1/2 pear cored and sliced
ground cinnamon

1. Toast the bread.
2. Combine ricotta, honey and ginger in a bowl. (If its a chilly morning, warm up the ricotta mix for a few secs in the microwave. It will help melt the honey.)
3. Spread ricotta mixture over toast and top with pear slices.
4. Sprinkle with cinnamon to serve.
