My name is Bijal and I am a Veggie Nutritionist who loves all things food! I would love to work alongside the Allergy and Free From Show as I’d be able to meet like-minded individuals who share a passion for plant-based food and nutrition but also be able to help others who may be on their journey with regards to allergies. I’ve attended the event 4 times and have always been amazed at the variety, as well as the number of products suitable for those with intolerances or allergies; it’s so nice to see inclusivity and availability!

Being an Indian vegetarian my whole life, I used to struggle a lot in explaining my dietary preferences and people not understanding what it entailed or what it meant to be lacto-vegetarian! My mum is also free from egg so growing up, I saw my mum cook a plethora of amazing Indian vegan and vegetarian dishes and this definitely fuelled my fire in working in an environment involving food. Now I am an Associate Nutritionist who loves to share knowledge about nutrition, lacto/vegetarian and vegan diets as well as how we can help to maintain our health and wellbeing. Attached is my headshot, thank you for this opportunity!
