Combine all the ingredients in a jar and shake to mix. Season to taste. Refrigerate for up to three days. Add some variety to this tasty dressing with a little crushed garlic and/or ginger. If you want it to be a thinner dressing then just add a little water. Use with the Sweet Potato and Broccoli Fritters for breakfast and lunch on day 5. Any leftover can be used over the remaining few days as you please.
Coconut yoghurt is a great alternative to dairy yoghurt, but ensure that the only ingredients are coconut cream/milk and probiotics. Some brands have added emulsifiers, such as gums and pectins that are best avoided. These food additives are very difficult for the body to digest and some can contribute to intestinal permeability. They are often called anti-nutrients as they reduce the body’s ability to absorb minerals such as calcium.
