Cook pancake on medium high heat for a few minutes until bubbles appear. Flip over and continue frying until cooked (a properly cooked pancake appears dense and not sticky when cut in the middle). Repeat previous step until batter is gone. Serve pancakes with banana slices and brown rice syrup.

Oat Muesli with Apples and Raspberries (Dairy-Free)

4 servings

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, goes the old adage. But according to many naturopaths, apples can also keep dandruff at bay. Also oats may help treat dandruff as they are packed with B vitamins and zinc.

1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup popped rice
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup organic apples, diced
1 cup raspberries
3 tbsp brown sugar
Rice milk to serve

Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C, gas 3). Mix oats, sugar, and cinnamon in a bowl. Spread mixture evenly onto a non-stick baking tray. Toast oat mixture in preheated oven for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Watch mixture very closely when toasting as it can burn very easily. Remove from oven and let cool. Pour into a large bowl and stir in popped rice. Divide mixture into serving bowls and top with apples and raspberries. Serve with rice milk.

4 egg whites
2 whole eggs
4 tbsp water
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
3 tbsp leeks, chopped
1/2 tsp garlic, minced
Cold pressed extra virgin olive oil

Add leeks and garlic, and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes or until tender. Add cooked leeks and garlic to egg mixture. Pour mixture back into oiled frying pan and cook until done. Transfer omelet onto a plate and garnish as desired.

Original Bircher Muesli

1 serving

Muesli was developed as a health food by the Swiss Physician Maximilian Bircher-Brenner towards the end of the 19th century. This is the original muesli recipe Mr Bircher-Benner recommended to his patients.

1 tbsp rolled oats
3 tbsp water
1 tbsp sweetened condensed milk
2 tsp lemon juice
1-2 apples (including skin)
1 tbsp hazelnuts or almonds, ground

Combine oats and water and refrigerate overnight. Soaking improves the nutritional value of oats as it allows enzymes to break down and neutralize phytic acid, a compound that can block the absorption of many minerals in the intestines. Grate apples. Add them, together with sweetened condensed milk and lemon juice, to soaked oats. Stir well. Sprinkle with almonds or hazelnuts and serve.

Stir-Fried Asparagus with Quinoa Noodles

Serves 4

Not only is this asparagus dish downright delicious, it also makes an excellent anti-dandruff meal because it is loaded with B vitamins, which have been shown to help reduce dandruff. It has been suggested that inefficient metabolism of carbohydrates and fatty acids could be one of the underlying causes of dandruff, and B vitamins have long been known to play a crucial in metabolic processes.

2 bundles asparagus, washed, trimmed, and cut into bite-size pieces
1 tbsp olive oil
3 tsp fresh ginger, minced
2 garlic cloves, slivered
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tbsp sugar
3 1/2 tbsp vegetable stock
12 oz dried quinoa noodles

Heat oil in a wok and stir-fry ginger and garlic for a minute or two, then add asparagus. Combine soy sauce, sugar, and stock in a small bowl and pour over asparagus. Simmer until asparagus is tender, about 3-5 minutes. Cook noodles according to package directions and serve with stir-fried asparagus.
