Redefining Healthy Cooking with Julia Turshen

Sunny Side Up Nutrition

Anna Lutz and Elizabeth Davenport chat with Julia Turshen about the process of researching and writing a cookbook, and how it felt to include an essay on breaking up with diet culture in her latest cookbook, Simply Julia. She also talks about how disconnection is inherent in diet culture; in families, or among friends, having weight loss as a common goal can feel temporarily good, but ultimately creates a deficit of joy around food. We discuss: How isolating it can be to grow up in a family that is immersed in diet culture, but also how connecting with people and having conversations about the impacts of diet culture is incredibly healing. How cookbooks are so often welcomed into peoples homes, but the contents are often not questioned. Examples of diet culture’s trickery and disconnection when it appears in cooking and cookbooks. The over abundance of images of thin, white, cis-gendered women in food-related social media posts is detrimental and is largely what has lead us to equate that type of body with “healthy”. How forms of oppression tend to be best countered as a community. Julia’s go-to meals.

Julia Turshen: Redefining What Healthy Means for Each of Us - R4R 247

The Running for Real Podcast

“I like running for the same reason I love to cook. I'm not looking at my computer screen, I'm not looking at my phone, I'm just outside and I'm present and that to me feels really valuable.” –Julia TurshenIn this episode we cover… Cooking is a marathon, not a sprint. How we can turn cooking from being frustrating and feeling like a chore to finding joy in it and feeling engaged and relaxed.  Reflect on the role of home cooks in our culture and society, especially the often undervalued labor of home cooks and their role in family, community and household.  Thinking about all the things that have to happen for us to cook at home. Everyone involved in the process: people who grow our food, who stock grocery shelves,  who mop the floors at grocery stores, who work the cash registers, who deliver things on trucks, and more. Julia’s childhood surrounded by diet culture and how that ultimately led her to write a cookbook about pushing against diet culture and pushing for us to redefine what healthy means for each of us.  How and why Julia started Equity At The Table (EATT), a free directory featuring women/gender non-conforming individuals in/around the food industry and focuses primarily on POC and the LGBTQ community.    Resources:   Cookbook and website: Simply Julia Equity At The Table (EATT)   Julia’s Instagram      Thank you to Momentous, Tracksmith, and Generation UCAN for sponsoring this episode.
