Often weight loss snacks are based around gluten, dairy or egg which are three food categories which people are often allergic or intolerant too.
Today we wanted to share with your some fabulous healthy weight loss snacks which are gluten free, dairy free and egg free!
1. Coconut yoghurt
Yoghurt is a fabulous option for a weight loss snack but if you are intolerant to lactose or dairy, regular yoghurt can result in uncomfortable side effects in your tummy. Coconut yoghurt is becoming more popular and available in supermarkets and health food stores, so pop some in the fridge to have during the day or take them to work.
Just remember that coconut yoghurts do still contain fat and so it important to manage your energy intake for the day to ensure you are still on track to lose weight.
2. Coconut chia choc pudding or even this chia seed pudding recipe
Chia puddings are high in protein and omega 3 fatty acids and will keep you feeling full and sustained for a longer period. Try this recipe as a delicious option.
3. Gourmet scroggin mix of pistachio nuts, goji berries and cacao nibs
Put together a little party scroggin mix to pop into your handbag. Gourmet style will keep you feeling alive and the sweetness, protein in the nuts and a bit of caffeine from the cacao nibs will give you back your pep.
4. Avocado on rice cakes
Avocado is delicious, creamy and filling but also a great option for monosaturated fat. Spread a quarter of an avocado onto a couple of rice crackers for a mid morning snack.
5. Apples with nut butter
½ an apple with 1 tbs of nut butter, delicious.

Chickpeas are legumes which are high in protein and fibre. Drain a can of chickpeas and place them on a lined baking tray and bake for around 15-20 minutes in a 200 degree fan forced oven.
