Eat Real Cairns The Healthier Eating Alternative

Eat Real Cairns was started by Elsa Lim and Evelyn Chung around the end of 2014, using a small van. Passionate about life and fitness, they wanted to inspire everyone to live more healthy lives and believed providing healthy, ready-made meals was a good place to start.

Elsa, who is the founder, director and main driving force behind the business, had struggled with weight issues for several years. During her own personal quest for health, she discovered and started eating a new diet, which changed her life.

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. That’s how and why the Eat Real Cairns healthy eating alternative started. For more on Elsa’s story, see below.

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!"
