Eat Fit Food’s Founder Bianca Monley is a successful businesswoman, entrepreneur and a true health foodie dedicated to changing people’s lives.
Originally from Wanaka New Zealand, Bianca moved to Sydney in 2000 armed with a passion for health, motivation for business and vast knowledge of food (thanks largely to a childhood spent around her parents family run restaurant).
In 2002 at just 22 years of age, Bianca launched Eat Fit Food.
Initially a one-woman show operating from her tiny apartment kitchen in Bondi, Bianca wore all the business hats, including ‘Chef’, ‘Delivery Driver’, ‘Accountant’ and ‘Sales/Marketing’. Fourteen years on, Eat Fit Food has evolved into a highly respected health food home delivery business, complete with a team of chefs, nutritionists and health experts across Sydney and Melbourne with plans to expand nationwide.
A mother to three beautiful children Harper, Winter and Finn, Bianca understands the absolute importance of health and wellbeing for individuals and families alike and uses her business as a platform to educate people on the core benefits of healthy eating and it’s positive impact on our busy lifestyles.
Established well before the health food industry resurgence, Bianca blazed the health conscious trail and cemented Eat Fit Food’s status as a trusted luxury health brand designed to support optimal health and weight loss.
With an extensive cast of Eat Fit Foodie followers like Hugh Jackman, Miranda Kerr, Rachael Finch, and Lindy and Michael Klim, Bianca is recognised as their go to person when in town to ensure their nutritional needs are met.
Since suddenly losing her mother to ovarian cancer in 2008 Bianca is actively involved in supporting local charities such as Pink Hope.
What’s next for Bianca? Having recently bought a property in The Southern Highlands, this dynamo plans to farm and grow organic produce to introduce into Eat Fit Food’s daily meals – a true paddock to plate experience.
With her young family and time spent on her new property Bianca will get back into the kitchen and create her very first cookbook. Stay tuned.
