Default Healthy/Unhealthy Dynamic

I like how there was a healthy recipe thrown in with unhealthy one. As delicious as those pancakes looked, healthy recipes I could use on a day to day basis will be far more useful to me and I imagine other people who are new to cooking, which seems to be your target audience.
Anyway... I like the show, keep it up!

Yeah, would be cool if the show did a regular (ie, whatever he wants to make) recipe and a healthy-ish alternative in each episode. I don't want it to turn into a preachy health show, though.

What did you find unhealthy about pancakes? If you make them with wholesome ingredients they're not bad. You can make them with wholegrains and fresh fruit if you want to skip the syrup.

Perhaps you object to the calories. But, all food has calories. Eating to much of anything can me unhealthy.

Eat real food, mostly plants, not too much.

I need to order a bacon tree, and start planting my steaks for summer.

If the pigs are corn fed they count as plants.

After living in the south, I know that bacon is considered a vegetable, and there are more people who are "culturally" Jewish that practicing

Such food prejudice... As long as the food is not toxic (like trans fats), enjoying it in moderation is not unhealthy. Just becuase you enjoy chocolate doesn't mean it's bad for you. Don't eat it for every meal. Enjoy it while you have it.

You and me both.

Seriously though, to the OP: Anything in excess is unhealthy everything in moderation is fine. The host even mentioned not eating the pancakes often for this reason.

Tried to respond a while ago on my iphone... guess it didn't post >< I'll sum up what I said though.

I understand fully that the pancakes are a once and a while thing, and I thought it was a good recipe. But for people with little to no cooking experience our lives are already full of junk whether its delivered, frozen or at restaurant. I think the healthy recipes will be far more of a benefit to get people started and I was just happy that there was a good one thrown in and I just thought I would send out my support of it in hopes that we keep getting healthy recipes thrown in. I feel like I, as a male college student, really fit the target audience to a T and I know what I am lacking is good healthy recipes.
