I am a Greek yogurt convert, BUT I have to have the sweetened/fruity flavored stuff, I can't stomach the plain stuff, even with adding fruit. I have a 6oz. container every day for my 9:00 AM snack and it does pretty well getting me through to lunch time.
I have to have a decent breakfast--usually around 300 calories, more on weekends. It's tough to beat eggs (no pun intended), IMHO--if you're worried about the fat/cholesterol one can always toss the yolks and still get most of the protein.
"Regular" instant oatmeal doesn't seem to hold too well, but the steel cut oats have a pretty decent shot of protein and fiber. Some prunes with them are always good.
