Honestly, I did not realize the other 364 days of the year are for men, but I will accept any and all excuses to celebrate myself!

I’d like to take the time to share some of the reasons females are the best:

1) We are, like, incredibly empathetic 2) We drop everything and run to be with those we love when they need us 3) We are super duper resilient – like break our hearts, silly boys, and we will come out on the other end more goddess-like ever 4) We are the most beautiful, talented people in the whole world – i.e. Kate Winslet, Adele, my mom, my bff, etc. 5) We have a secret intuition that can sniff out BS accurately 98% of the time 6) We literally expel human life from our bodies.

Welcome to The Purple Almond Wellness I’m Tamara Hoerner, MHNE, wellness educator and founder of Purple Almond Wellness. I work with middle-age individuals to help support brain health and develop whole body wellness, in order to improve the quality of their mid-life years. Heart and Alzheimer’s diseases run in my family and I struggled with weight loss, so I strive to help others with similar conditions. Using only nutrition, I rid my body of seasonal allergies, Psoriatic Arthritis and migraines. I know what it takes to use food as medicine, especially in middle age. As a wellness educator and Summa Cum Laude graduate of Hawthorn University, I develop personalized nutrition plans and wellness education sessions, to help clients. 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.

I'd love to know what you think!
