Our friends at Grape-Nuts are always thinking about movement and health–and how they can power us through the day. As you know, we love Grape-Nuts and have since we were little. With summer beating down on us, here are a few tips from Grape-Nuts that we heartily agree with to keep you working out through the heat!
This is monumental. When we created Hungry & Fit in July 2012, we didn’t expect it to go much further than a “hobby blog,” documenting our cross-country moves and life changes. We knew that we would use it as a platform for personal training (KING Physical Performance, which I started in 2007, turned into Hungry & Fit LLC) and while our goal was to help people become happier and healthier, we never expected it to come this far, with such a small team at an extremely low cost, but enough of that!
If you read this post, you’ll know that I am working on some goals for this summer. I really wanted to ignite my fitness drive back up so I decided to plan out some goals to give me more motivation on working out every day. The goals are mostly body weight goals. Two goals, however, stood out a little bit: running 3 casual miles and being able to touch my toes. Along with my other goals, they just didn’t make sense. Just because they’ve been longtime goals, I wanted to throw them in my mix of body weight goals (which aren’t easy, mind you). However, with my busy work schedule and all my home hobbies and chores, I was stressing to fit everything in in one week.
In 2007, I started taking supplements (pre/intra/post workout) in order to increase my performance as a Division I athlete (that I was grossly unprepared for that level of competition). Although I was practically raised in fitness facilities, working out with my mother at home, playing competitive sports all day every day, I never had a real strength and conditioning or sports performance coach until college. In high school varsity sports, we hit the weight room together but there were no programs for exercise or nutrition. My sport-specific skills were top notch but I didn’t have a body that could use those skills.
This is a guest post from our good friend, Nerdy Neanderthal, a nerdy fitness dude. Expect more posts from him ranging from workouts to beer discussions to nerd surges!

We don’t do this often; in fact, I don’t think we have ever done this on the blog. For the past few years, we have both been subscribed to a service that allows individuals to petition just about anything online. By garnering signatures, their hope is that they can change something, using those signatures as leverage against the party they are opposing. While neither of us has ever created a petition, nor do we know anyone personally who has used the service, there have been occasions where we have signed other petitions.
In all honesty, it’s hard to know who is right, who is wrong, who is telling the truth, and who is lying. It’s based on different opinions and views of any situation. Still, it’s a relatively civilized way of trying to figure out a solution to a problem. You get the idea and you can decide for yourself what petitions you do or don’t want to sign. I, however, for some reason have decided to share this petition and ask you to consider signing it.
I don’t know about you, but Hungry and I love Indian food: the flavors, the different textures, the unique combinations. In fact, it’s our most often ordered “take-out” or “take-away” as they say in New Zealand. What better to fill a grumbling tummy than a beautiful heaping plate of curry, rice, and naan? I’m drooling just thinking about it. SO when we had a block of tofu that needed using, I decided to go with an Indian style dish. It’s easy, it’s delicious, it’s nutritious: our favorite three. We hope you enjoy this Indian Tofu Mushroom Curry–inspired by Honest Cooking.
This is a legitimate question I feel like many ask: should I have a scale in the house? This question is a little more complex than it may seem on the outside. It may seem like just a yes or no answer, but there are a lot of intricacies laid beneath. It’s absolutely not just physical–it’s very mental too. It affects your physical goals as well as well as your mental attitude.
