The above quote, from the ancient Hindu text the Upanishads, is almost mind boggling in it’s accuracy and relevance to today’s society, as well as food choices. We have access to any type of food…food to heal and make us strong and agile in our old age with sharp focused minds…or we have food that destroys us, making us grow old before our time, lose our minds to depression, mental illness or dementia and die young, from chronic disease. The choice is your’s. What’s it going to be?
Today, as I close out this series on superfoods, I have a video for you from David ‘Avocado’ Wolfe, discussing the vast difference between types of food in our society today and the affect on our health, whether good….or bad.

Welcome to Purple Almond Wellness!
I ’m Tamara Hoerner, MHNE, ROHP/RNCP, founder of Purple Almond Wellness. I am a nutrition consultant and wellness educator. I work with middle-age individuals to help support insomnia, 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 struggle with insomnia and 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, as well as cured my insomnia. I know what it takes to use food and whole body wellness, 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, health isn't just about food it's about living a positive, happy, healthy life..
Where food is concerned, 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.
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.
