7 Lucky Foods to Eat for New Years!

I can use all the luck I can get, so I will definitely be eating not one, but all seven of these "lucky" foods going into the new year.

Greens
This is easy enough, greens are green like money so, if you eat them you will be lucky when it comes to money.

Beans
Beans, like greens, resemble money, but symbolize coins instead. So, eat black beans, lentils or even black-eyed peas.  

Fish
Fish are lucky for a similar reason above - money. But, they also swim in schools, which symbolizes abundance. Bring on the sushi!

Fruit
Grapes represent the months. Pomegranates symbolize prosperity. Figs are a symbol of fertility - I'll be staying away from figs.

Noodles and Grains
Noodles and grains are symbols of ong life and abundance. So, slurp up some noodles and soup this new year.

Pork
I'm not a huge fan of pork, but I do love my bacon. Pigs are a lucky symbol because they root forward and are rotund. So, make a BLT and enjoy. 

Cake
Let them eat cake! Cake may not be healthy, but it is definitely a great way to end a meal and start a new year. Ring shaped cakes are a symbol of coming full circle. so, indulge ... just a little.
