Fiberous Carbs

We have decided to switch up our fibrous carbs in our meals. Instead of our usual broccoli, asparagus, spinach and green beans we are now going to be having cabbage. Yes, I said cabbage. This veggie is not only fibrous but has several other health benefits. We sautéed up a batch with garlic, onions and a few spices and it tastes great! So if you are looking for a change in your meals I defiantly recommend cabbage. Don't knock it before you try it! xo Christine

For Christine Thorne, fitness is a way of life.
Ever since training for her first fitness competition, Christine has fallen in love with not only the body she worked so hard for, but also the incredible changes she noticed in her health and wellbeing. The sensation of strength and clarity became more than just a goal – it transformed into an essential part of life, as vital as air. And once Christine noticed how much better she looked and felt through her path to health, she was inspired to help others feel the same.
Growing up in Leduc, Alberta, Christine got her intro to fitness through sports, at first with taekwondo, track and field, basketball, and soon after, rugby. She was named her rugby team's MVP in grade 9, fostering an adoration for competition and physical activity, and the effects these had on her body and mind.
In her early 20s, Christine tried yoga and a few group fitness classes, but really noticed that weight training lent her the most noticeable improvements in physique and mental focus. The real turning point in her life, though, came in 2010 when Christine moved to Calgary, got her Canfitpro personal training certificate and started preparing for fitness competitions. Since then she has competed in 6 competitions. She placed fourth in her first-ever show and placed second in her fourth competition.
In 2013, Christine and her husband Shayne Jensen launched Jensen Fitness in Calgary with the goal of teaching others what the pair have learned about health and fitness in their journeys, through wholesome nutrition and custom workout plans with their online training programs. The pay off? Seeing clients achieve fitness levels they never dreamed possible before now.
