Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Superfood Breakfast Balls
Welcome to the 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 will 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 keeping your blood sugar stable and nourishing your body.
Today’s breakfast, my favorite Superfood Breakfast Balls, includes omega-3’s in the chia seeds, a much needed healthy fat; protein from the nuts and seeds; and sulfur in the the black sesame seeds, which is great for detoxification. Kids also love these breakfast balls — try them with your family.
