An educated eater is a healthy eater.

Somewhere along the way, many Americans decided that food exists for indulgence, pleasure, and profits instead of as a nutritious blessing to keep our minds and bodies in top operating condition. HOUSE is our contribution to the world to help folks find credible information for healthy, clean eating.

Vetted Information: The Harvest Oasis research team verifies all information in HOUSE. We  evaluate not only the content but also the author, website, and companies associated with the source information. We only publish articles we find most valuable to your health.

Objective Information: Some information here is factual, some is educated theory. We do not recommend diets, specific brands of foods, or specific websites. We share weight loss and health maintenance diets proven to work for some. Different bodies respond differently, so only you and your healthcare team are most qualified to decide which diet is best for you. 

Open Communication: Coming soon!  Keep an eye out for our upcoming member forum, designed to enable our Harvest Oasis family to reach out and connect, share ideas, and support each other along the journey of improving. Stay tuned!

What do all those healthy food buzzwords really mean?

Too many buzzwords with too many definitions. David Zinczenko, a  #1 New York Times bestselling author of 25 books on health, fitness, and nutrition, gives it to you straight on what the “healthy foodie terminology” is here.

Can food function as medicine?

The Center for Mind Body Medicine is a great source to learn how our bodies use the micronutrients in the food we eat to fight disease and keep us healthy. The Center is run by James Gordon, M.D.  Dr. Gordon is a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Family Medicine at Georgetown Medical School, and chaired the White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine Policy under Presidents Clinton and G.W. Bush.

What micronutrients does drinking alcohol affect?

Drinking alcohol excessively is bad for you, and the decision to do so is a personal one. 

If you do drink, find out which micronutrients the National Institute of Health says are being harmed. Tip:  make sure you consume plenty of B-1!

The Right Diet For You

There is no one-size-fits-all diet, so we share information on several diet plans found to be healthy and effective. Choosing the proper short-term weight-loss and long-term maintenance diet plan is highly personal. Each body has unique micronutrient needs and each diet affects different bodies differently. (Psssst! The better your food choices taste, the greater your conviction to stick with your diet plan!)

Perhaps the most important factor in the success of any of these diet plans is your conviction to stick with it. If you don’t like the food, you probably won’t stick with it.

Nutritional Psychiatry

Dr. Uma Naidoo’s main body of work is in nutritional psychiatry, and she is regarded as a medical pioneer in this field. The burgeoning field of nutritional psychiatry is identifying the many consequences and correlations between not only what you eat, how you feel, and how you ultimately behave—and the kinds of bacteria that live in your gut.
