“At this time of year your goal needs to be make healthy food choices when you can. Some nights you might just end up eating a handful of tiny quiches for dinner. The goal is to make sure you eat healthy breakfasts, lunches and snacks and don’t forget to look at portion sizes. With New Year’s on the way, do what you can in the days leading up to it to focus on eating healthy foods at every meal you can. So instead of eating left over cheesecake for breakfast, eat your normal cereal and fresh stone fruit.”
If you’ve started thinking about your resolutions for 2011, Ms D’Allura suggests adding ‘get organised for healthy eating’ to your list. “One of the proven methods for losing weight is being organised. We don’t often realise it but the way we organise our lives has a big impact upon our health. In an Australian survey on obesity, one in five experts ranked time pressure as the single most important social trend underlying the rising rates of obesity.”
This personal organiser has been working with busy high-achieving professional women as well as busy full time mums with a professional past, to simplify every day life by getting kitchens and pantries and home paperwork organised, teaching menu planning skills with a twist, and how to Get Organised for Healthy Eating.
“A lot of our clients can’t work out why their home space doesn’t hum along as efficiently as their workspace. The difference is they have the support of colleagues and personal assistants who set up how things need to be organised. In the domestic setting it is a completely different skill set you use to streamline and simplify everyday life – everything from the laundry to meal time mayhem, and identifying their organising and thinking errors that are stopping them from getting healthy”
If you’re looking for help you’re in luck! On 10 January 2011 Revamp Professional Organisers Pty Ltd are launching their on-line Get Organised for Healthy Eating in 21 Days Program on the 6 fundamentals they teach their clients. Their low cost program also includes a one-on-one phone consultation with Home Economist/ Nutritionist and Accomplished Professional Organiser Louise D’Allura to get you in the right headspace! “We uncover the stumbling blocks, and I help each participant strategise and prioritise the 6 fundamentals I want them to focus on during the 21 day program.”
Here’s a sneak peak of the 6 fundamentals you’ll learn:
Fundamental 1: Know your food philosophy.
Knowing this unlocks why you are eating in the first place!
Fundamental 2: Get knowledgeable about your food and how to cook it.
This is really about cutting the clutter and get back to basics!
Fundamental 3: Get your kitchen and pantry organised
Get started just by looking for items out of date, and what healthy grab and go snacks you have on hand?
Fundamental 4: Menu planning your way.
This is all about stop fighting who you are! If you have a hard time with meal planning, take the free quiz to uncover your menu planning personality.
Fundamental 5: Eat well, often, mindfully and being a conscious cook
We tend to eat out of habit. If you’ve ever gone a party and eaten snacks constantly or eaten popcorn during the movies, you know what mindless eating is all about.
Fundamental 6: Move more!
At this time of year we feel pulled in different directions and unfortunately the thing that tends to drop off our list of priorities is ‘me’ time or workouts. Do what you can to keep moving.
