I’m Winnie Abramson. I have a degree in naturopathic medicine and I am the recipe developer, writer, and photographer here at Healthy Green Kitchen. I launched this blog in May of 2009 and it’s where I fuse my interests in home cooking, holistic nutrition, and green living. I enjoy sharing my favorite healthy, seasonal recipes on the blog, as well as my adventures in organic gardening, backyard chickens, and beekeeping.
My parents owned the famed restaurant The Quilted Giraffe in New York City when I was growing up, and I’ve been cooking for as long as I can remember. After college, I spent five years studying naturopathic medicine at Seattle’s Bastyr University: I graduated with a doctorate in 1998. After practicing for several years, I changed gears to focus on writing about nutrition and the connection between good food and good health. I live in upstate NY with my husband, two kids, and many pets, including a flock of laying hens. I love sharing my experiences in and out of the kitchen and hope to inspire others to cook more, eat better, and live greener.
I am the author of the forthcoming book One Simple Change (Chronicle Books, January 2014) and recipes of mine have appeared in 3 other books: my Arugula Salad with Pomegranate, Avocado, and Goat Cheese was published in The Foodista Best of Food Blogs Cookbook (Andrews McMeel, 2010); two of my recipes were published in The Food52 Cookbook (William Morrow, 2011) and my recipes for Dandelion Greens Salad with Ramps, Bacon, and Blue Cheese and Spring Vegetable Curry with Ramp Cilantro Chutney were published in Ramps: The Cookbook (St. Lynn’s Press, 2012).
