"I've been ordering lunches/dinners from Elsa & Eva for a few months now & I'm really happy with the excellent food & amazing service their business offers. They mix up the choices for me & everything is always so fresh & tasty. Working 11 hour days, sometimes the last thing you want to do is cook so it's great to come home & just heat up one of their tasty meals. They freeze well too & the meals are very reasonably priced"

"I have coeliac disease and lactose intolerance. As gluten free food bloggers, my partner and I usually make all our meals from scratch ourselves, but with our wedding just a few weeks away, we have no time. Eat Real's pre-packaged healthy real-food meals have been such a great help to have on hand. "

Michelle Daga

"Literally writing this review as I am eating the "Beef Stroganoff" and OMG it's AMAZING. All of the meals are so full of flavour, very filling, AND my favourite part - I know they are nutritionally balanced and I am fueling my body with nothing but the best. I can't get over how delish EVERY meal is. Eat Real has made my life so much easier and taken the stress out of organising dinner every night. Thank- you girls!"

Lana Canute

"Best healthy meals. Cheap but so filling and they don't skimp on the meat. Keep finding new favourites. Coffee chia is the best new addition. Highly recommend. Make the best meals for those who hate cooking like me, just like a home cooked meal."

Jasmine Seivers

"Absolutely delicious. Those busy folk who want to pre order and pick up really good food to store or eat over a few days I highly recommend these healthy meals. Just enjoyed sweet potato pasta with beef and chicken curry with puréed cauliflower. At $10 each a bargain meal and fantastic flavours."

Cairns Ready Made Meals Made Easy, Because You're Busy

Our Cairns ready-made meals come pre-packaged, ready to heat and eat. Our customers are just like you. Busy people that want to eat healthier food, without having to buy the groceries, do the meal preparation and the dishes afterwards.

Our range of Cairns ready-made meals have the right balance of protein and vegetables to provide a balanced diet, leaving you feeling fuller, for longer. Generally speaking, they contain 150g of cooked protein (chicken, pork, beef, lamb and fish), 150g sweet potato and 150g of cooked, seasonal vegetables (cauliflower, broccoli, carrot and beans). We only use extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil. There’s curry meals and a weekly special to choose from.

Eat Real’s meals are cooked and provided fresh. They can be eaten on the day of pick-up or delivery, or frozen for eating at a later date. Unless frozen, all meals should be consumed within 3-5 days of it being made.

NDIS meals

At Eat Real Cairns, we are equally passionate about supporting and servicing people with a disability. Elsa owner of Eat Real knows how important and vital that they all have access and service to receiving wholesome and healthy meals. Having over 20 years of experience within the Disability sector, working as a support worker, she knows the struggles of people accessing nutritious meals that not only would be good for them but also for their budget. Eat Real caters for a variety of dietary needs while tasting like home cooked meals. All meals are cooked from scratch and made fresh to order.

We have developed a solution that automates the administrative complexities for both Plan Managers and NDIS recipients. This includes only charging 30% of the meal upfront, whilst invoicing the Plan Manager the remaining amount. We also make it easy for the recipient to sign up and place their orders.
