The English language has an expression: "food for the soul." Could someone tell me how to say this in Irish Gaelic? I know food is bia and soul is anam, but I don't know how to put them together. Thank you!

Trí bhia an duine : bia anama, bia intinne agus bia colainne.

The three foods of the human : soul food, mind food and body food.

Is ceann de na tréanna é. / It is one of our triads.

Ádh mór.

Trí ní nach féidir a cheilt/Three things that cannot be concealed:

An tart, an tochas agus an grá/ Thirst, an itch and love.
