This week I challenged myself to create a menu using only foods from the top half of the Transform :20 food list. There is a good reason for doing so too. Read on to see why.
Transform :20 Food List
I’ve noticed that many of my food choices are usually at the bottom of the Transform :20 food list. Cucumbers, mushrooms, bananas, turkey sausage, turkey bacon, wheat & corn tortillas. Don’t get me wrong these foods are nutritionally sound or they wouldn’t be on the list. But they aren’t the most nutrient-dense choices.
In case you didn’t know, the Transform :20 food list is arranged with the most nutritionally beneficial items on the top. Kale, raspberries, chicken breast, sweet potatoes, avocado are all top of the list items. Now Beachbody does say not to skip foods lower down the list because “variety is an important part of getting all the nutrients you need and will keep eating fun.” I agree.
I just realized I needed to seek some variety at the top of the list. So, all the meals and snacks on this week’s menu use the top 50% of each category.
