It’s 2014 and we’re enjoying our New Year’s traditional good luck foods. We live in the South (Atlanta), so these foods are pretty big down here. Different places in the world have various New Year’s food traditions.
The collard’s green leaves look like folded money and are therefore symbolic of economic fortune. Black eyed peas bring luck. Beyond the legendary symbolism of luck and fortune, greens are a super food. They’re high in many minerals and vitamin K. As for black-eyed peas, they’re problematic for those on Paleo diets, but if you soak them prior to cooking many of the antinutrients are eliminated–making them great for those on an 80/20 Paleo plan. Give yourself a break and start the New Year with style! 🙂
Here are a few of the yummy treats from around the blogosphere.

For more yummy foods, check out our Paleo foods category. This year, the family’s going Flexitarian Paleo. This is due mostly to allergies (dairy and gluten) and health issues (autoimmune). We’re looking forward to healing our bodies with nourishing foods.
What are your goals and resolutions this new year?
