Carly Paige

Founder & CEO

Nice to meet you! I am an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and Chef who specializes in plant-forward cuisine. After working on the reactive side of healthcare for several years, I felt called to a career in preventative wellness. I believe that food has the power to heal and transform the body from the inside out, as I have seen evident in my own life. By combining my love for cooking with expertise in holistic nutrition, it’s my goal to show you that healthy doesn’t have to be complicated, and it should always be delicious.

Since starting FitLiving Eats in 2016, I have had the opportunity to lead over 100 cooking classes and prepare countless meals for clients. I’ve worked with brands such as NASA, Southwest Airlines and The Four Seasons to educate their workforce on my holistic approach to healthier habits. Professional programs that I have completed include: Plantlab Culinary, Nutritious Life, and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

I feel most at home when I’m in my kitchen, preparing delicious and nutritious food for friends and family. There’s no better feeling than knowing you are impacting the health of others in a way that is enjoyable and exciting.

Noeli Almeyda

Meal Prep Operations Manager & Chef

Hi! I am a chef who spends most of her time thinking about food and the ocean – both places where I feel completely in my element. My passion for the culinary world started at a very young age, as I learned that food brings people together. For as long as I can remember, I have been in love with both cooking and eating. It wasn’t until my mid twenties that I realized how sacred our health is, and the food we choose to nourish our bodies with takes a large part in that.

Both culinary school and my upbringing prioritizes flavor above all else, and I feel that that is why it’s always exciting for me to play around with food. It’s a fun challenge for me to find ways to make food that will help you feel your best, taste amazing. I am so grateful that I get to express my creativity and passion for healthy, delicious food in my work every day.

Kelsey Moreau

Kitchen Operations Manager & Chef

Hi! I am a chef, yogi and culinary creative who is passionate about showing people that eating healthy food can be delicious. I grew up as an athlete, and my curiosity about how food refuels our bodies developed from a young age. I love creating nutrient-dense food that inspires people to think of food as flavorful information and nourishment to the body. I strive to incorporate local farms and seasonal changes into the food I create. Food is something that brings us together in community, and is a shared experience that impacts not just the people who eat it, but the people who grow it and prepare it. 
I was previously Head Chef at New General cafe in Winter Park, FL and was kitchen manager and chef at the Sanctum Café. I have hosted cooking classes and pop-up events like Cows & Cabs, Veg fest, and the Florida Film festival. In addition, I have cooked and hosted for private clients, catered wellness retreats, catered yoga events with Firefly Yoga Company and hosted a Brand Ambassador kick off with Lululemon. I look forward to creating meals for you through FitLiving Eats Winter Park! 

Julie Mathews

Meal Prep Chef

Hello! I’m a Georgia-raised Floridian with a passion for healthy living. My love of cooking and nutrition began just 7 years ago, and it has changed my health and my life in such a big way. In a world full of uncertainties, what I eat is something I can control. Eating nutritious and delicious food and feeling good as a result is incredibly empowering. I love learning about food and I am so excited to be a part of such a talented team of chefs.

As much as I love cooking, music is my first love. I enjoy singing with the Bach Festival Choir as well as showtunes in my kitchen, and one day I’m going to start a band.

Melissa Garcia

Meal Prep Chef

My style of cooking is plant-based. Once I adapted to this lifestyle myself a couple years ago, it impacted my life so much that I decided I wanted to devote myself to it 100%. I made the tough decision to leave a corporate setting job to pursue cooking full-time.

Ever since then, I’ve enjoyed sharing and showing people that health-forward food can be exciting without compromising flavor. It’s been the most rewarding feeling to know that I can express myself through food with others. Definitely the best decision I’ve made!

Fatima Zahra Faiq

Meal Prep Chef

Hi! I was born and raised in Morocco. Food is my passion, and it brings me joy, especially when doing it for family and friends. I learned to cook from my mother, using her technique of mixing spices which is a crucial part of Mediterranean cuisine. At a young age, I realized that I had a deep connection with cooking and the art of combining ingredients to create delicious meals. 

Health issues over the years led me to reassess what I cooked and ate, while educating myself about plant-based cuisine and eating healthier. After leaving the corporate world, I decided to make a switch to pursue my passion for cooking, sharing my cultures through food, and become a chef. I have hosted many events, such as private dinners and baby showers. I have also participated in a cooking show with Thermomix Vorwerk.

Rose Millson

Business Operations Assistant

Hello! I have always been passionate about the overlap between nutrition and health. I believe that nutrition can be a powerful tool to help people heal and support their health. After feeling sick, anxious, and not myself in high school, I discovered that I was gluten intolerant. Within a week of cutting gluten from my diet, I felt better than I had in months.

After receiving a psychology degree in college, I completed my Integrative Nutrition Health Coach Certification through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition to pursue my passion for wellness further.

Healthy eating has supported me in so many ways, physically and mentally. I believe it can help others in the same way. I love and appreciate how much thought and care is put into the food at FitLiving Eats, and am excited to be an integral part of the team.
