About Tamara Hoerner (1169 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. This is a truth I’m currently trying to embrace at a difficult time in my life. I know this to be true, joy does come after the mourning.

    • There was a time in my life when I experienced a tremendous tragedy and I thought I wouldn’t survive. It actually turned my life around and I am a new and better person for having lived through it. You’re in my prayers. My tragedy taught me that everything happens for a reason. For me I survived by searching for the reason, and ended up going on a spiritual journey that changed my life. Hang in there. You are strong.
