9. Enjoy lucky fruits as part of your New Year cuisines

Apart from trying out all sorts of good luck foods for your New Year celebration meals, don’t forget throwing a few lucky fruits into the mix. And even before we talk about the luck bit, it is important to acknowledge the fact that fruits are generally healthy.

10. Enchant yourself by eating beans this New Year

If you want to be lucky from the get-go, then you’ll have to add beans to your list of new year cuisines. Beans are super easy to prepare. First, you need to soak right before boiling them for a couple of hours. Note that there are different kinds of beans available on the market. But that doesn’t mean you’ll have to cook them differently as the procedure remains the same. Again, if you can’t cook, then go out with the family and order beans as part of your New Year meals. But I always recommend cooking your beans at home for a number of reasons. One advantage of cooking beans at home is that you can give them an ample time degas properly. Doing this will go a long way in protecting you from embarrassing “gaseous” incidences which have a knack for happening especially when you least expect. Needless to say, beans have a plethora of health benefits. There are also plenty of customized recipes online that you can use to cook the beans to your liking. So, how did beans come to be considered as lucky? One might ask. Well, whether they are green beans, black beans, chickpeas, cannellini beans or garbanzo beans – they all look like bitcoins.

11. Have your lucky greens this coming new year

The color green has always been associated with wealth mostly because that’s the color of the mighty dollar bill. Therefore, having some greens in your diet at New Year should be prioritized this coming year if you want to get wealthy. And don’t just do it because it is the new year. Make it a habit if you want to stay healthy all year around. Start by incorporating greens into your diet just because you want to be healthy. Greens are rich in all sorts of vitamins and mineral elements such as iron and so forth. You can also find a lot of protein in greens such as spinach. There are countless recipes you can use to cook your favorite greens, turning them into irresistibly delicious meals. Therefore, if you are looking for the perfect New Year good luck food that’s not only not only delicious but also brings you good health, then greens should definitely top your list.


One thing that you’ll definitely appreciate about lucky New Year cuisines is that they are not only lucky and healthy but are also too darn delicious. Another thing to consider apart from consuming these healthy foods is that you’ll need to work hard in the process. Remember what they say, luck favors the brave.
