Depending on where you live in the world, it's likely you have some unique New Year's food traditions. Many cultures believe that what you eat, or don't eat, can inspire good luck OR misfortune in the coming year. Which superstitions do you believe in?
1. Though delicious, don't eat chicken on New Years.
Chickens scratch backwards, which could cause you to regret or dwell on the past. Actually, don’t eat any winged fowl for that matter – they foreshadow that your good luck could fly away.
2. Also, don't eat anything white.
3. Do, eat some greens.
4. But don't eat lobster.
Lobsters move backwards and could therefore lead to setbacks in your year.
5. Hang up your onions.
6. Throw a pomegranate.
7. Eat some grapes.
8. Get a little fishy.
9. Nom on some black eyed peas and lentils.
Some other mindful tips: Keep a stocked pantry going into the new year and leave some food on your plate at midnight to leave a bite for the future.
