Your body houses your spirit and your soul. Your body is like a vehicle that has to be given the right fuel for its optimum performance, so you can experience good health emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually. 

Healthy food choices  would enliven you, energize you, make you perform your best and uplift your spirits not momentarily, but you feel a sense of power, clarity of thought and you have ceaseless energy for the day. And deep inside you feel great as the food has also nourished your soul. What are those foods?...they are no secret. They are all around us in supermarkets and grocery shops, in our refrigerator, in the markets.

Let me for the first time write down  my choices of soul food

1. Oranges
2. Dates
3. Strawberries
4. Spanish black olives
5. Farmland Haloum cheese
6. Salads (using fresh vegetables and salad leaves)
7. Mint
8. Basil
9. Watermelon
10. Banana
11. Almonds, cashewnuts, peanuts
12. Fresh Milk
13. Steamed or grilled vegetables
14. Tea (one cup in the morning), Coffee (one cup in the evening)
15. Mango and Mango juice 

Soul foods will never let you down like junk food. They will not lead you to put on weight; in fact eating soul food makes you mindful of what you eat and help you overcome food addictions. They give you nourishment, vitamins and minerals. They give you good health.  When you think of  your list of soul food, what comes into your mind?
