Chicken Legs in the Morning

Is 8:30 am too early to eat chicken?

You see, here's my problem. I get up at 6:30 am and get on my stationary bike by 6:45. Then I pedal for 50 minutes while drinking my breakfast shake full of protein and healthy fats and carbs. Actually I finish drinking my shake within the first ten minutes, then I work on my 16 ounces of water.

When I finish exercising, I dash upstairs to shower, get the youngest two boys off to the bus stop and return home by 8:30. And that's when my stomach rumbles as if it's forgotten that it's already been served a 240 calorie breakfast shake just 2 hours prior. Obviously, it thinks it is time for breakfast round two.

I've tried various ideas for a 'morning snack' and end up feeling dissatisfied and HUNGRY until I finally feel it's an appropriate time to eat lunch.

So today, I decided 'lunch' should be at 8:30 am and heated up two leftover chicken legs. De-lish! And my tummy is much more satisfied.

So, do you think 8:30 am is too early to eat chicken?
