This article is in honor of First Foot Day , New Year's Eve & New Years!

Green Vegetables 
Cooked green vegetables such as cabbage, chard, kale, and collards are consumed during New Year's Eve in many different cultures. This is for the reason that these vegetables look similar to folded money and are the same color of money as well, which many believe will bring in good economic fortune for the coming year. The more greens consumed, the more fortune will be received. This is also a tradition done here in the Southern part of the United States where New Year's food traditions include consuming collards.

Legumes 
An assortment of legumes that include peas, lentils, and beans are also believed to bring in financial fortune when consumed on New Year's Eve. This is also included in the Southern New Year's food traditions where a classic Southern dish known as Hoppin' John is served that contains cowpeas or black-eyed peas.

Fish 
Most people in Asia, Europe and North America also consume fish during the New Year. Some believe that since fish swim forward, they are a symbol of moving forward into the New Year. Others also believe that fish are a symbol of abundance as they swim in schools.

Pork 
Pork is another one of the traditional New Year's food to include during this holiday dinner. Many believe that a pig's fatty content symbolizes wealth and prosperity in the coming year. Serve your favorite pork dishes to enjoy this fortune.

Fruits 
Fruits from oranges and grapes are also considered lucky when consumed during the New Year's celebration. Having a selection of these fruits on your dinner table will certainly help bring more luck for the New Year.

Round cakes 
Let's not forget dessert, the most important part of any meal! Cakes and other treats are served all around the world on New Year's Eve and throughout the holiday season. It is up to you to serve whatever you wish from yummy cakes, cheesecakes, cookies, pies, and other sweet treats. This is the easiest step to fulfill amongst the New Year's food traditions, as you simply need to order and buy cheesecake online and have it delivered right to your home.

Now that you know many of the New Year's food traditions that bring good fortune, don't forget to include them in your New Year's Eve dinner. Doing everything you can to have good fortune for the New Year will definitely make you feel more secure and optimistic for the days to come.
