Are you ready to say goodbye to 2014 and start fresh in 2015? So are we. To ensure you have a great New Year, you may want to indulge in these lucky foods on New Year’s Eve.
They are the color of money, and are said to represent the currency. Lucky for you, they are easy to prepare and good for you. So for your health and prosperity, be sure to load up on your greens this Wednesday.
Maybe not what you expected, but fish are said to bring success, good fortune, and protect you from dangers. Serve up a steamed, fried or baked fish for your guests, or incorporate fish into your appetizers in a spread for crackers. However you decide to do it, enjoy and hope for the best in 2015.
The Spanish tradition is to eat 12 grapes at midnight, one at each chime, representing the 12 months of the New Year. Successful completion of this task shall result in good luck in the New Year. Other lucky fruits include the pomegranate, with its richly colored red seeds representing wealth in the coming year. For those attempting to start a family, a sweet fig is said to signify fertility.
Grains symbolize health and long life, so be sure to load up. Whether it’s a healthy quinoa dish or a circular cake (the round shape is a sign of the year coming full circle), enjoy your food with family, friends, and loved ones.
Last but not least are beans, which resemble coins and are said to bring prosperity. You can serve these delicious legumes in dips, soups, or even pasta salads. Easy to incorporate into dishes, beans are an easy way to bring luck for the future, whether you believe it or not.
