Kale & Co is a new Perth biz offering 3 and 5 day weight loss and clean-eat meal programs. It’s the brainchild of Jen Stummer (one of the lovely ladies behind Panache Cafe in Perth’s CBD) and the food is ridiculously tasty – and good for you! Introducing Jen Stummer and Kale & Co x 

1. What inspired you to create Kale & Co?
My wonderful Mum who owns @PANACHE café on Mill Street has an incredible business acumen and helped me to develop Kale and CO. as a stand-alone business. We also worked with WA’s best Nutritionist and Accredited Practising Dietitian, Julie Meek (ex-Fremantle Dockers and Wildcats Sports Dietitian) to help develop our Kale and Co programs.

2. Please tell us a bit about Kale & Co and how it works.
Our 24-hour superfood meal plan service blends the best of juice cleansing and wholefood eating into 3 + 5 day programs for those who value peak health but don’t have time to do it themselves. 

We have created TWO options to suit people with different lifestyle and nutritional needs. These plans are delivered to your doorstep and they are all calorie and portion controlled and are based on a whole-food, plant-rich diet. We currently have a rejuvenation, cleanse plan “The Cleanse” as well as a wholefood eating program ‘The Nourish’.
3. How did you go about creating the menus? 
 We work with a rotational seasonal menu. I love using fruit and vegetables that are IN season and we create healthy, simple wholefood dishes around these.  We like to put a healthy spin on most of our dishes. For example our risotto for dinnner is made with cauliflower and broccoli ‘rice’. We have a wide range of superfood dishes such as pumpkin and almond bun-less burgers, beetroot brownies, mushroom, quinoa and pesto cakes, as well as cleansing tea tonics and cold-pressed juices.
4. How is it different from other cleanses?
Our K&Co. CLEANSE plan is a 1300-1400 calorie rejuvenation program. Perfect for those who are after a full body “cleanse,” total body rejuvenation as well as the opportunity to lose a few unwanted kilos. The K&Co. NOURISH plan is a 1400-1500 calorie wholefood meal plan {perfect to do after the K&CO. Cleanse} and is a great way to shed those extra kilos and maintain a healthy eating lifestyle. All meals are free from gluten, wheat, dairy, unhealthy fats, refined sugars, additives and preservatives. Total vegan options are also available.

Our ‘Cleanse’ program is unique as it contains a mixture of carefully chosen juices, smoothies, salads + soups focusing on protein and fibre which are two very important ingredients you need to aid your body’s “cleansing” and repair process.
The great thing about it all is that you get to ‘EAT’ on our K&CO. cleanse and don’t feel as though you are being deprived! 

5. What benefits can you expect from doing a Kale & Co cleanse?
 You feel lighter, brighter and full of energy. We’re not a diet, we’re a healthy eating lifestyle and we help people to kick-start and maintain it. 

6. And, lastly, what’s your favourite Kale & Co meal?
 Our coconut, zucchini and chia pancakes with cashew butter. They’re delicious and jam-packed with zucchini. The perfect power breakfast.
