Kara Rosen

PLENISH founder Kara Rosen spent a decade flying between New York and LA - jetlagged, overindulged and exhausted from a hectic travel and event schedule, whilst working for Condé Nast in New York on magazines such as Condé Nast Traveler and Men's VOGUE. After battling a recurring throat infection with antibiotics for two years, she turned to a holistic nutritionist who suggested a five-day juice cleanse. That cleanse, which began as a temporary solution for an exhausted body, finally helped her win the battle and developed into a love for a new lifestyle. Inspired by the power that intelligent nutrition (mostly plants) had on regaining her health, Kara became inspired by the power of the right foods to not only heal a damaged body, but her own power to proactively fill up on the good stuff to have the health, energy and drive to live a full and active life. Ultimately this lead her to create a portfolio of Plenish products that act as health-hacks for the way we live. She's a champion of proactive health that easily integrates into life and tastes delicious, keeping people running on plenty, never empty. Her books are your tool guide to live a Plenished life.Plenish was orignally published in 2015 and Kara's second book, Plenish: Fuel Your Ambition, published in 2016.Find out more about Plenish at instagram.com/plenishcleanse, on Twitter at @PlenishCleanse and at www.plenishcleanse.com.
