If you’re invited to a dinner party and the host is cooking, what type of profession would you like them to have?
Chef is ideal. Perhaps a baker. But doctor? Maybe not. Surely your local GP is more used to slicing open people than an aubergine?
Luckily, Dr Rupy Aujla is here to change your perception of doctors and food.
He’s a medical doctor specialised in general practice, and he also does a bit of emergency medicine.
Impressively, for someone who does such a tough job – and labours in a beleaguered NHS – he finds the time to pursue his passion. He’s a firm believer in the power of food and lifestyle change as a way to help people.
He believes making small changes to the way we eat – and live in general – can be as useful as medicine.
Dr Aujla doesn’t promote fad eating. Instead, he focuses on small changes to the diet with a focus on healthy foods. It’s simple but effective, and Dr Aujly is a regular on ITV and the BBC as a nutrition expert.
He also has a podcast called The Doctor’s Kitchen, where he interviews another health expert about ways to improve our health.
Of course Dr Aujla cooks for his guest, before they get to the real main course – discussing health and ways for you to improve it.
The good doctor is also a bestselling author, with two cookbooks, The Doctor’s Kitchen and Eat To Beat Illness, to his name.
He is also the founding director of Culinary Medicine, a non-profit organisation that aims to teach doctors and medical students the foundations of nutrition, as well as teaching them how to cook.
So, sit down, pull up a chair and feast on the wide-ranging conversations found in The Doctor’s Kitchen.
