Lucky Foods For The New Year

Dear Daily Vegan Readers,
Thank you for your interest in and support of The Daily Vegan. It's been an absolute joy to share this information with you. I hope you will continue to embrace a plant-based diet. Below is a fun article on lucky foods for the New Year. But first, here is one of my favorite quotes, which I'd like to share with you:

"All beings tremble before violence. All fear death. All love life.
See yourself in others. Then whom can you hurt? What harm can you do?"  Buddha

With utmost gratitude for all you do for the animals,

Good Luck Foods For The New Year



In many Asian countries, long noodles are eaten on New Year's Day in order to bring a long life. One catch: You can't break the noodle before it is all in your mouth.

Black-Eyed Peas

A common good luck food in the southern United States, black-eyed peas are thought to bring prosperity, especially when served with collard greens.

In Germany, Ireland, and parts of the United States, cabbage is associated with luck and fortune since it is green and resembles money.
Thought to resemble coins, lentils are eaten throughout Italy for good fortune in the New Year.


Long associated with abundance and fertility, pomegranates are eaten in Turkey and other Mediterranean countries for luck in the New Year.
