Healthy, because

Pears are a delicious, low-calorie snack, and are packed with hard-to-find nutrients like potassium, magnesium, and vitamin C. This tart also contains energizing carbs, healthy fats, and other important nutrients. 

If blue cheese is too harsh for you, use goat cheese or feta. You can also add some prosciutto for a little protein.
