About Tamara Hoerner (1268 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.

  1. It’s a little late for that information. I am about to turn 74 and thinking about what you said I’m wondering why I don’t have the energy of a jet anymore. LOL. Thank you for sharing. ☺☺

  2. I don’t know what to eat now.. Everything we eat right from vegetable to meat is using preservatives like such things 🙁

  3. Yes, and artificial sweetener has embalming fluid in it. Some wine (many years ago) used anti freeze as a preservative. It was in the news. Who knows if it was true or not.

    • That’s why I advocate organic whole foods whenever possible. Simple, nutritious food.

      • Its not really embalming fluid, but elements that are used to make embalming fluid. I first heard it said that way. It gives more of a punch to the story. Plus its hard to forget. That day I stopped using any artificial sweetener.

      • If you’re interested in more information on artificial sweeteners there’s a book by Russel Blaylock called EXCITOTOXINS: A TASTE THAT KILLS. In the book, he discusses how artificial sweeteners and msg over excite nerves in the brain and kills them. He also talks about how artificial sweeteners turn into formaldehyde in the body.


      • I had lunch the other day (Chinese Food). I believe they used MSG. I thought they had stopped using MSG – 20 years ago. Wow. My head was clogged and I felt like I was choking. My throat started to close. I thought I was having a heart attach. I did not attribute it to the food at first. My friend had a headache for the remainder of the day until 8:00 pm. Thaks for the reference book! I appreciate it. Cheers!

  4. Oh my… no words… except it’s no wonder people are riddled with illnesses that are such a mystery. I know. I have one.
