Thanks for posting this Haylen. While I don't do a morning snack, it is still very interesting. I usually have a snack around 4:30pm. My "go to" breakfast is 1/2 C. All Bran with a sprinkle of raisins or strawberries and 1/2 C. reduced fat milk (I still cannot do the skim - yuck!). It generally holds me until lunch. On the weekends, I will scramble an egg and/or have turkey sausage to change things up a bit. For a while, I did yogurt every morning, but I had to take a break. I think the extra fiber and protein from the milk really help with my cereal choice.
I eat a morning snack everyday at work, not so much on the weekends. It is essential because I eat breakfast (greek yougert and berries) at 8 and cannot go for my lunch break until 1:30-2 or later. I eat a hard boiled egg and a piece of fruit (and my cholesterol is perfect since I started the egg, before all my numbers were high) It depends on what you are eating- as long as you eat things that contribute to good nutition and you are still eating within your calorie count, it can be good for you.
