Healthy Cooking Tip…

 Balance flavors with vinegar. Make vinegar your friend. It’s a light and refreshing way to make an average dish taste way better in less than a minute. Add a splash of red wine vinegar to braised meats at the end of cooking to brighten the flavors. If a soup tastes too salty, a bit of balsamic vinegar can help bring balance.

-Nick Melvin, executive chef at Venkman’s in Atlanta

Let us stop for a moment to pray and meditate.

About Tamara Hoerner (1258 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.
