About Tamara Hoerner (1256 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 sad but also amazing how many #metoo’s I’ve been seeing on social media. I’m sure every woman/girl has experienced sexual harassment at least once in her life, and so many more women than I thought have experienced sexual assault. It’s disturbing, but I love that social media is bringing it to light and letting women know they’re not alone.
