In an effort to start the Year of the Rabbit off right I’m going to follow the below food guidelines on New Year’s Eve.

Lucky foods:
12 grapes (one for each strike of the clock)
Cooked greens (because the greens look like folded money)
Legumes (also symbolic of money)
Pork (pigs symbolize progress)
Fish (not exactly sure what this is bringing to the table)
Cakes! (bring good luck)

Foods to avoid:
Lobster (they move backwards and could lead to setbacks)
Chicken (they scratch backwards which could cause regret or dwelling on the past)
All winged fowl (because good luck could fly away)

I’d like to thank epicurious for sharing this great article. I think I’m one step ahead of things already!

And just to be on the safe side, I’ll avoid dining on rabbit tomorrow…
