About Tamara Hoerner (1303 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.

  4. People are so confused about EGGS! I have 5 eggs approximately 5 times a week (4 egg whites and 1 whole egg.) I cook them in 5 grams of coconut oil. “New School” thinking (and research) shows the benefits of eating foods (such as eggs) prepared in HEALTHY saturated fat (coconut oil.) Take away the empty calories found in poor quality processed carbs, and reap the benefits or healthy outcomes.
