“Macrobiotic” means “great life!” Warren tells us on this episode of The Food Heals Podcast. We heard about Warren Kramer from Alicia Silverstone’s, The Kind Life which is an interactive extension of her book, The Kind Diet, about living your healthiest and happiest life to the fullest, while taking care of mama Earth at the same time!
As a huge fan of Alicia’s work we could not wait to hear what Warren had to say and after the interview both us us came away thinking MIND = BLOWN! Learned lots of new things in this interview including the meaning of the word, macrobiotic, why it is vitally important to eat at the same time each day, how to alkalize our bodies for optimal health and so much more!
Warren Kramer is an internationally recognized macrobiotic counselor, educator and cooking instructor. For the past 23 years, he has studied and lived the macrobiotic way of life. Warren teaches the macrobiotic approach to health and wellness, including principles of food selection and preparation, exercise, work and personal relationships.
Guiding others to strengthen or recover their health is an incredibly rewarding experience. As a macrobiotic health counselor, Warren has gained extensive experience in doing just that on a daily basis. Individuals seek health consultations with Warren for a wide variety of reasons ranging from recovering from a life-threatening illness to improving their general health even though no specific medical problems exist. The Macrobiotic approach has a proven track record in helping to manage or eliminate an array of health challenges from weight loss and fatigue to diabetes and cancer.
For more than 10 years Warren had the unique opportunity to work on a daily basis with Michio Kushi, the most established and recognized leader of Macrobiotics throughout the world. As Michio’s assistant, Warren helped guide thousands of people with a myriad of health concerns. In addition, Warren spent 6 years traveling extensively throughout the world, teaching cooking in individual households and assisting people in the recovery of their health.
From cooking classes to group lectures, community events to private study sessions, Warren has been active in providing education at the individual, group and community level. Warren serves as a faculty member at several distinguished educational centers including The Kushi Institute (Becket, MA), and The Strengthening Health Institute (Philadelphia, PA).

Unsurpassed. Superb. Inspiring. These are just a few of the adjectives others have used to describe Warren’s abilities not only as an exceptional cook but also as an instructor who can teach anyone to be a good cook.
Strong health begins in the kitchen. And preparing nutritious, balanced meals in a reasonable amount of time can be done even with hectic work and family schedules. Warren offers cooking classes for all levels of cooks from novice to professional.
