6 Lucky Foods to Eat on New Years Day

Well You Made it to 2015! Want to start the year off right? In this post from Rodale, they offer up six foods traditionally served on New Years Day to start the year off right - with good luck as they say.

"Thanksgiving and Christmas grab all the glory when it comes to holidays devoted to food. But across the world, food plays a big role on New Year's Day when the phrase "you are what you eat" becomes a total truism, when people eat traditional dishes designed to bring good luck, fortune, abundance, and prosperity. So rather than spend New Year's loafing on the couch watching parades or sadly taking down all your holiday trimmings, head to the kitchen and mix up one of these traditional dishes. And be sure to use plenty of organic ingredients to ensure that your lucky new year starts off on a pesticide-free foot."

They suggest Pork and Sauerkraut, Black-Eyed Peas and Collard Greens, Grapes, Beans and Lentils, Pomegranates and Herring as the foods of choice.  I don't know about you, but several of those appeal to me - I have a pomegranate in the fridge calling my name right now!

I'm sure you have traditions of your own - or maybe it's time to start one! What food do you choose to start 2015 with?
