Tea Time with Ines Scholtes, Creator of Wholesome Eatery MYLK+KO

February 06, 2017

Welcome to Tea Time with kkao Co. where we get to know our favourite foodies, health & wellness gurus, ethical & sustainability advocates, inspirational souls and all-round cacao lovers.
This week, we sat down for a cuppa with Ines Scholtes (aka Wholesome Ines) owner and creator of wholesome eatery MYLK + KO in Brisbane. So brew a pot of your favourite chocolate tea and join us!

Ines loves food and cooking (mostly baking). Her passion is turning 'regular' recipes into 'healthier' versions. When creating recipes, Ines uses ingredients like gluten free flour, coconut sugar, cacao, coconut oil. She believes that you shouldn't have to give up on taste and indulging in foods you like because of your food intolerances or dietary preferences.

Go-to morning beverage?
Water, then coffee.

What inspires you?
Other like-minded people and their commitment to living a fulfilling life. For me it's all about living the life you want to live, not about expectations. I understand that this is not easy for a few different reasons so when I see someone doing something they love, that inspires and motivates me.

What’s your philosophy when it comes to healthy living?
Balance - eat well during the week and live a little on the weekend. It's more about listening to what your body wants without necessarily binging or overindulging.

The one healthy treat you can’t live without?
Acai bowls.

How do you relax and spend your ‘me’ time?
Watching a movie with my boyfriend.

Where’s your ideal coffee date?
Somewhere I can get an almond milk cappuccino (with extra chocolate please).

Is it OK to eat chocolate for breakfast?

Favourite foodie or health & wellness instagram accounts?
Panaceas Pantry, Elsa’s Wholesome Life, Pheebsfoods.
Dark or milk chocolate?
Dark, preferably dairy free 
What’s your favourite recipe that uses cacao?
Brownies (healthy of course)
One mantra you live by 
Eat dessert for breakfast!
