If you're looking to start off the New Year in a healthy way as well as bring yourself good luck (as it's said that many countries around the world make greens, beans, or both), then check out this leafy green brunch roundup here today!


Greens such as escarole, romaine, cabbage, and spinach look like money so they're thought to bring the best of luck when the New Year starts, (or even green beans are part of this superstition) anything green you cook will start a good luck tradition.


Not only are all these green leafy meals delicious, but they're also a healthy way to kick off the New Year with a light nutritious diet after all those every laden meal over the Christmas holiday season.


Besides leafy greens, many countries around the world also celebrate New Years' eating different green foods, for example, beans are a big tradition in Italy and many folks are eating green lentils with sausages (cotechino con lenticchie) which is another sign of money because they're green.


In the Southern states, they usually serve black-eyed peas and collard greens, which our Italian version is Escarole and Beans.


No matter what food you choose to make, something that's is healthy and green, is perfect to start the year with is with a positive attitude and be hopeful for good changes in the year to come.
