Many people have already picked up some items from the grocery store for their New Year's Day dinner. Some of those items may have included traditional foods like black-eyed peas, collard greens, pork, and cornbread.

Chef Ryan Cobb of Colonnade Restaurant stopped by Good Day Atlanta on Monday to talk about some of these traditional foods and why we eat them for the New Year.
