Hi and welcome. If you are just starting out, don't worry about snacks - all you need to work on is breakfast. There are 4 parts.
enough protein for your weight
a complex carb
within an hour of getting up
every day

Then eat what you want for the rest of the day.
I needed snacks for quite a while, even after I got to step 3. But I worked on my meals, had planned protein and complex carb snacks, and gradually my blood sugar settled down and I didn't need them unless I was more physically active than usual. But that will all sort itself out as you do the steps.

Have you found a breakfast you like?
