it feels like i’m lying when i tell people how old i’m turning this week ✌🏽 except i’m actually super excited to be where i am because the older i get, the less i care about being perfect and the more i care about just being me!

happy 3 year tap anniversary to me ✌🏼 when i was 6 years old i took tap class for one semester and then stopped, but i always dreamed of picking it up again one day. i just never thought i would do that in my late 20s and i never thought i would love it this much! cheers to three years of starting from scratch and not being perfect and continuously learning. this is your sign to do it too!

the number 1 reason i decided it was time to ditch the food rules ↑ i didn’t want to imagine myself at 30 living by my own restrictions. i didn’t want to imagine raising a child and allowing them to watch me judge my body and eat selectively. and i for sure didn’t even want to begin to imagine myself at 80 still struggling with food rules. fact is, i could imagine all those things and it was terrifying. i actively choose to break my own food rules that i made for truly no good reason because that life i was imagining, was so much scarier than just breaking the rules now✌🏼

because the me of 2017 is shook right now… never did i ever think i’d be living in new york, or married to the most amazing person, or actually feel confident in an outfit, let alone a dress! working for myself and sharing my life with over 70k people? absolutely wild i always find myself looking for the next thing, meeting that next goal, but sometimes it can feel so powerful to take a moment and acknowledge where you started and where you are now 🤍

every year i get a little emotional on my birthday for so many reasons. i think number one is not feeling like i’ve met all my goals from the year before. but my goals are always changing and my mental health can be a rollercoaster and figuring out my gut health is a full time job in itself. so this year i will *try* to be patient with myself and celebrate exactly where i’m at because i can learn to grow and adapt at any age 🤍

i’ll take full of energy, happy, calm, confident, and curvy over my ed any day 🤍

normalizing attainable wellness one sweet coffee at a time #sponsored to me, wellness is what i make of it. it’s what feels good and makes me feel my best. workouts in the early mornings? nope. journaling every day? doesn’t do it for me. working out 7 days a week… couldn’t be me. my wellness is a morning drive/walk with really good music. it’s a tasty coffee and a lil treat. it’s @solarayvitamins to help me get the nutrients i need. they’re the only vitamins i take daily, and they’re my favorite form of wellness. use the link in my story and code CHENSPLATE for 15% off yours! #livebrightersolaray #solaraypartner

foods i avoid in order to stay healthy: 1. gluten because it gives me migraines… and that’s it actually. i try my best to avoid the food that’s causing me discomfort and i enjoy everything else in moderation. because when i’m able to listen to my body and give in to my cravings, i’m truly living my ~healthiest~ life 🤍

i’m still living my best life even though all those things happened that i was convinced would ruin my life. well they didn’t and my life continued and dare i say things even got better after the fact??

and maybe a lil soda on the side 😏

just be YOU, not anyone else ✌🏼

Fudgy Coconut Brownies

This dessert is gluten free, dairy free, and refined sugar free! Pour the batter into a lined 8×8 brownie dishand drizzle with almond butter. Pour the almond butter into lines and then usea toothpick to pull across the lines to create the design. A totally optional step,but who doesn’t love the almond butter?

Chocolate and Vanilla Orange Marble Cake

It’s definitely one of the more complicated recipes I have ever shared, but it’s still gluten free, dairy free, and refined sugar free. If you follow the recipe, it should all make sense, but never hesitate to leave me a comment and ask anything 🙂 Hope you guys love this one as much as I do • 1/4 cup orange juice (from one whole orange) Keep one half to the side and with the other half: melt the 1/2 chocolate bar and add it into the mixture with the cacao powder. To create the marble effect: spoon some vanilla cake mix into clumps on bottom, fill in the spaces with the chocolate, and then use a toothpick to swirl one flavor into the other.

Lemon Cookie Cups

I love to have warm lemon water every morning, I love to use lemon juice as my salad dressing, and freshly squeezed lemonade makes any hot day infinitely better. Especially when the seasons start to change and the heat returns, I love playing around with citrusy fruits in order to make refreshing desserts perfect for a hot summer day. I found a dairy free whip cream at the grocery store for the filling and then rolled with this recipe to make the little cups! Using a mini muffin tin, turn it upside down and spray it with a little avocado or coconut oil.

Chocolate Orange Frosting

and I was becoming impatient, so I’ve started playing around with making my own recipe and this one did not disappoint. It’s perfectly creamy and perfectly sweet without all the added chemicals and random words you’ve never heard of and can’t pronounce. This recipe will work with a regular sweet potato, but the color of the frosting will change. Once the potato is very soft, throw 1/2 cup of the mash into a food processor
