When you begin your personal journey into wellness, it is important to be aware the foods you are putting into your body.

The old saying still rings true, "You are what you eat" and if you eat unhealthy processed foods, you put yourself at risk for a number of ailments and conditions.

The best way to combat these unhealthy trends is to begin a regiment of eating beneficial foods that feed your mind, your body and your soul.

Let's look a bit more closely at these 4 foods that can help prevent sickness.

Chicken Noodle Soup 

Most people eat chicken noodle soup when they are trying to recover from a cold, but did you know that chicken noodle soup made from scratch is highly nutritious and it can help support a healthy lifestyle?

The Journal of Renal Nutrition published a study suggesting that bone broth found in chicken noodle soup can aid in weight loss. Other journals have published studies suggesting that the bone broth can help in digestion, gut health and reduce inflammation.

Avocado 

One of the tastiest fruits is also one of the most nutritious. The avocado is a popular food that has been incorporated into many fine cuisines over the past few decades. Just a few slices of avocado each day can help your body in ways you never thought possible.

For example, did you know that an avocado has more potassium than a banana?

When most people think of avocados, they think of guacamole.

Instead of eating chips and dip, try buying fresh avocados, slice them up and incorporate them into your meals. Experts say that fresh avocado can help key blood enzyme metrics and this will lower your risk for cardiovascular diseases.

Berries 

Are you fan of blackberries, blueberries, strawberries or raspberries?

Most berries are loaded with anti-oxidants and most health professionals suggest that berries can assist your body in preserving wellness and preventing disease. In addition berries have anti inflammatory properties that can help reduce the risk of STDs and bacterial infections.

While many simply buy berries at their local market, wash them and eat them, berries are delicious with many dishes and they can be incorporated in yogurts, smoothies and various other types of healthy concoctions.

Fish 

Baked fish or pan seared fish such as salmon can provide your body with Omega-3 fatty acids which protect your organs.

Another benefit of fatty fishes is that they are packed with selenium, which helps with brain cognition, memory and possesses other neurological health benefits.

Best of all, fish is inexpensive and it can be prepared rapidly. Another fatty fish you can try is tuna, which possesses many of the same benefits as salmon.

When you incorporate these 4 foods into your diet, you are doing a service to your overall wellness and vitality and you will be on the road to preventing sickness and disease in your body.
