Healthy Food Tips: A great recipe to help lower your blood pressure!

Over my 3 month hiatus, I went to the doctor…(for the first time in a while, I’ll admit! 🤭) While normally my blood pressure is on the low side, this time it was a tad too high.  The doctor had me take my blood pressure at home 2x a day for a month to make sure I didn’t need medication.

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.
