We have touched upon just a few of the basic food items that you can include in your meal for the New Year party, or simply keep in the mind to include them on your plate when you go out. Who says you can’t eat healthily and gain a little luck on the way?!
Grapes / Raisins
As easy as it is delicious! This food item can be found or taken everywhere. Spanish tradition says that eating 12 of the grapes or raisins before midnight strikes can bring good luck for 12 months of the year. Bonus tip! You can substitute them for snacks as they are equally filling.
A food item that is the healthiest option for your diet, green vegetables like kale and spinach can be enjoyed in a smoothie or be prepared in the mains. You can bake, or stir fry them for a healthy alternative. Also, they are ideal if you want to bring in more money for the New Year. Green symbolizes money, so the more you eat the more you attract. We say dig in!
Beans / Lentils
Beans and Lentils are extremely healthy and are found in most side dishes. If not, then make sure to put that on the menu as they bring good monetary luck. Italian tradition is that the beans and lentils resemble coins and eating them brings wealth.
Roasted Whole Fish
Fish is a popular food item for proteins, and you can roast or bake this for a healthier meal option. If you want to go the extra mile, then you can cook the entire fish with its head and tail intact for more prosperity and abundance and a better year, as is in Chinese culture.
Happy New Year! Eat healthily and wish for a perfect time in the coming year.
