Eat Real Cairns The Healthier Eating Alternative

Eat Real Cairns was started by Elsa Lim in 2014.  Passionate about life and fitness, she wanted to inspire everyone to live more healthy lives and believed providing healthy, ready-made meals was a good place to start.

Elsa the founder & director behind the business, had struggled with weight issues for a long time from the age of early teens to her late twenties. During her own personal quest for health, she discovered and started looking at creating a healthier version of herself and hasn’t looked back.

Elsa believes that through education, she can empower people and communities to understand how to eat better. How to fuel their bodies with the right food. She believes that not only nourishing our body but our community will have a positive effect in our society for the long term. That’s the WHY for Eat Real.

Start your own journey today by ordering one of our healthy ready-made meals. For more information, please contact us on 0416 229 412 or

Elsa’s Story

"I was forever starving on a low calorie diet. After one season of bodybuilding, I learnt that you could change your physique by simply eating, whether it be good or bad food. My first strength and conditioning coach spoke a lot about Paleo eating and I remember hearing this and saying to myself ‘this cannot be true!’. What I learnt was, I could eat whatever I wanted, as long as it followed the guidelines of Paleo eating. I remember eating bacon and eggs with a piece of fruit, vegetable or salad for breakfast for almost one year, while joining a cross-fit football workout. With the support from a great trainer, not only did I drop in terms of body fat, but I also gained in muscle. I was really impressed to say the least! "


"Previously, I had tried very hard to maintain a healthy weight and body shape. I also used to train other girls and they were all getting fit, but not losing weight, which led them to become frustrated. We all decided enough is enough, a change was needed. So, I agreed to do their food prep and they would pay me what it cost to make. I really wanted them to realise that it actually is what you put into your body, that made all the difference."


"This experience really motivated me to want to change the perception out there that healthy eating is boring. So, I started to make some of my favourite meals using Paleo guidelines and have never looked back!"
