I first discovered Rupy’s work via Instagram which at the time included his podcast and debut recipe book and I quickly became fascinated with his career story. The stories that we tell others about our lives and the events within them, shape the way that we show up every day, and influence the direction in which our lives move. I’m inspired by Rupy’s vision for a world where people are educated and equipped with the knowledge they need to eat their way towards healthier lives.
Dr Rupy Aujla is the NHS GP who started 'The Doctor's Kitchen'. A project to inspire patients about the beauty of food and the medicinal effects of eating well.
Not only does he create delicious recipes on his website and social media channels including Instagram, Facebook and YouTube - but Dr Aujla also talks about the amazing clinical research behind the ingredients he uses. He also has two best-selling cookbooks published by Harper Collins - ‘TheDoctor’s Kitchen’ and his second book 'Eat to Beat Illness' which was released in March 2019 and quickly became a Sunday Times Bestseller.
Dr Aujla is also the founder of ‘Culinary Medicine’ – a non-profit organisation which aims to teach doctors and medical students the foundations of nutrition as well as teaching them how to cook.
In his role as clinical adviser to the Royal College of GP's and more recently being accepted as a fellow on the NHS Clinical Entrepreneur Programme – Dr Aujla has big aspirations to bring the concept of 'Culinary Medicine' to the profession globally.
"As a doctor, I see the effects of poor dietary and lifestyle choices every day. I got so many questions about nutrition whilst working as a general practitioner that I plucked up the courage to get behind a camera and literally show my patients how to get phenomenal ingredients onto their plate. I’m just a straight talking doctor giving healthy eating inspiration"
