Welcome to our new "Breakfast with Jon" series. If you don’t know me, I lost over 220 pounds with a holistic mind-body weight loss approach that I call The Gabriel Method. In this series I'll introduce you to breakfasts that change your body on a cellular and hormonal level. No more mid-morning junk food cravings! You’ll feel less hunger, while you keep your blood sugar stable and nourish your body.

All breakfasts should include “The Big 3”:

  • Protein
  • Live foods
  • Some form of omega-3 fats

Today we’re making a hearty breakfast that includes The Big 3 and is filling and nutritious — despite being free from typical breakfast ingredients like grains, gluten and dairy.
