Chinese New Year Recipe: Healthy Dumplings HP NEWS

The confetti may be gone from Times Square, but there’s another new year in town. The Chinese New Year, also known as the Lunar New Year, is widely celebrated around the world between January 21 and February 20 each year, according to Almanac, depending on when the second new moon after the winter solstice appears. Each new year is named for one of 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac, and this one will be the Year of the Rabbit.

A number of countries besides China honor the holiday, including Vietnam and South Korea, as well as people in every corner of the world who celebrate it as part of their heritage, notes Smithsonian.

A centerpiece for any Lunar New Year gathering is traditional foods. In fact, many of these foods have important symbolic meanings related to the celebration of the new year. Noodles are eaten for a longer life, tangyuan (sweet rice balls) for family togetherness, and dumplings and spring rolls for increased wealth, reports the Food Network.

It can be challenging to enjoy a traditional Lunar New Year celebration with all these festive foods and still maintain a healthy diet. That’s because, while delicious, many of these foods are high in processed carbohydrates, salt, and sugar and low in the valuable vitamins, minerals, and fiber your body needs to function at its best.
