Harvesting Change

Growing old is mandatory; Feeling old is optional.

Christie Trent, NASM-CNC

Developer, Writer, Certified Nutrition Coach

Hi, I'm Christie, originally hailing from the rolling hills of West Virginia. After spending two decades behind a desk as a computer programmer and developer, I found myself sitting more, moving less, and eating junk! In 2020, like many of you, my life had been turned upside down.

At first, when we were sent home to work, I was in a panic! I had a distracting puppy at home, no desk, no office, and was living in a 700 square foot studio apartment. But then, something magical happened. I had more time to move more, cook more, and eat better. I started walking every day and very quickly made the life-changing decision to start eating a plant-based diet.

My motivation was to combat persistent back and hip pain, which had been present since childhood. The results were nothing short of astonishing, prompting me to share my newfound knowledge and changes with the Plant-Based Nerd Community.

But not only did I witness the vanishing of my back and hip pain but also the disappearance of seasonal allergies, chronic ear infections, and immune system whoas. My passion for understanding nutrition and fitness deepened, and I later enrolled in the National Academy of Sports Medicine where I became a Certified Nutrition Coach, and completed two specializations in Nutrition, and Diet and Exercise.

I have spent 5 years free of seasonal allergies and ear infections, and 4 years free of chronic pain. And I hope I can share more with you as I continue this journey of holistic health and wellness.

I hope you'll join me in this pursuit of a healthier, happier, and more vibrant life.

With Love and Respect,
Christie Trent, NASM-CNC
