Are you looking to lose weight on the detox? Although dropping a few kilos can be a side effect during the program, a detox is generally the first step to any professional weight loss program, not in place of. A congested liver for example inhibits weight loss, so although some people lose weight during the program, we generally see some real results after the organs have been cleansed and any underlying health problems have been addressed.
Through in-house screening tools, your Naturopath will not only be able to measure the results of your detox and how much your health has improved by the changes you’ve made, but she can help you tailor an individualised program moving forward to help you lost weight, increase energy and improve immunity long term.
In health and happiness,

Ingredients (7-9 patties)
- 1 cup dry/uncooked chickpeas (2 & 1/4 cups cooked)
- 3 large garlic cloves
- 1/2 cup red onion, roughly chopped
- 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 cup lightly packed fresh cilantro
- 1/4 cup lightly packed fresh parsley
- 1/4 cup ground flax
- 1/4 cup breadcrumbs (use GF breadcrumbs for gluten-free)
- 1/2 tsp ground cumin
- 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes, optional
- 2 teaspoons wholegrain mustard
- 1/4-1/2 tsp fine grain sea salt, to taste
In a food processor, with the processor running, drop in 3 garlic cloves to mince. Now add most of the drained/rinsed chickpeas (reserving about 1/4 cup to stir in later), and process a few seconds to chop. Now add the onion, lemon juice, and herbs. Process until just combined, being careful not to over-process. You want to leave texture. Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Scoop the mixture into a large bowl. Stir in the ground flax, breadcrumbs, cumin, reserved chickpeas, and salt and pepper to taste. Shape into patties, about 1/4 cup each and really pack the dough in tightly so it holds together.
Grease pre-heated skillet with cooking oil and then cook the patties on medium-high heat for about 5 minutes on each side, or until golden. For the salad: Add chopped tomato, red onion, a drizzle of hot sauce, cucumbers, falafel.
