About Tamara Hoerner (1261 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

  2. I did not know this. I assume big stores do that. but what about the little shops around town? Would it be insulting to ask them?

    Yet another reason I’m glad I’ve been vegetarian my whole life

    • Yes, I understand. I tried to be a vegetarian at one time, but, couldn’t do it. I have a very restricted diet, and taking out meat was just too much. I applaud your strength. 🙂

        Ah I see. It could be tough if you have additional restrictions. I’m actually lacto-veg (but nobody knows what that means.) Basically I just don’t eat eggs on top of meat and fish. I suppose that’s a good thing because I can’t have too many pastries? Lol.

      • 🙂 I understand. It’s the same thing with my gluten intolerance-no pastries. 🙂

        You understand! 😭 I mean that’s totally horrible but finally someone who gets me!!!


  4. I had no clue! I feel all these chemicals they now put in our foods is a huge reason so many people are diagnosed with so many diseases and immune disorders. Knowledge is POWER, so thank you for educating me!
