Food and recipes for Middle-Age brain health, wellness & quality of life.
Brain Talks ~ Recipes: 10 Unique Recipes to Boost Memory and Heal the Brain
On Tuesday, I published a list of foods to boost memory and heal the brain. The following recipes combine foods from list, which you can find below. For more detailed information on each food, you can find the article here..
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
For each of these recipes, I tried to combine more than one food from the list into each recipe. For the most part, I was successful, with a couple exceptions. Here we go!
This recipe is a wonderful and flavor packed way to add 3 important brain foods into your meal. This pesto includes pumpkin seeds, kale and coconut oil, along with cilantro, lime, garlic and ginger to make a delightful pesto sauce.
What better way to get healthy coconut fat AND fermented foods than with coconut milk yogurt you make yourself? This recipe only has 2 ingredients and couldn’t be easier!! Serve this with your keto granola for a winning, brain healthy combo!
FERMENTED TURMERIC ROOT!!! Turmeric is a wonderful root with so many brain healthy and anti-inflammatory priorities. Fermenting it is a brilliant idea and, with just 3 ingredients, is SUPER easy. It just requires a bit of patience. Colleen recommends using it to make some homemade soda, like THESE. Or just add it to salads or smoothies for a gut and brain health boost!
I hope you enjoyed reading through the list. As I always say, cooking healthy doesn’t have to be boring. It just requires a bit of creativity and ingenuity, like replacing an unhealthy ingredient with one of the brain healthy foods from this week’s list.
Until next time, namaste my friends

Welcome to The Purple Almond Wellness!
I’m Tamara Hoerner, MHNE, ROHP/RNCP 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, as well as cured my insomnia. 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.
