Happy New Year from communEATi!

Happy 2016 everyone! Welcome to a new year, bright with promise. 2015 was tumultuous to say the least, and with 2016 being an election year, things probably won’t be slowing down anytime soon. So why not arm yourself -- and fuel yourself -- with some luck for the year?

We told you about the food considered lucky to eat on New Year’s earlier this week, and now we’ve found some lucky meals for your first day of 2016!


For your first meal of 2016, we recommend a fruitful brunch of pomegranates and grapes paired with this delicious Baby Spinach Omelet. If you need to take breakfast on the go, try this toasted bagel with spinach and eggs. Foods in the shape of a ring are thought to bring good luck because they symbolize coming full circle.

For lunch, we’re going way down south with a New Year’s Day classic from Charleston, South Carolina: Hoppin’ John. Loaded with coin-shaped black-eyed peas, this dish is thought to be loaded with luck. Many modern recipes replace the ham hock in the traditional recipe with chicken stock, but we recommend using ham if you can. (Remember? Eating pork is considered lucky, chicken isn’t.)

If you didn’t get to use pork for lunch, don’t worry: we’ll get you that luck with dinner. Mix things up for your final meal of the day with this veggie filled Pork and Noodle Stir-Fry. Vegetarian? Substitute tofu for the pork (or nix it altogether) and vegetable broth for the chicken broth and you can soak up all the luck of the noodles in this dish too!

We wish you all the luck and happiness possible in this new year! And make sure you follow communEATi on Facebook and Twitter so we can keep you up to date on all the big things happening for us this year.
