All of Our Other Projects!

Obviously, we don’t make enough from this blog to live our amazing life in Hollywood, California, with our four pets and appetite for delicious food. We’ve always had real jobs too, but we won’t bore you with our work history because you can find (most of) it on our LinkedIn profiles. We do, however, love to keep ourselves busy and while some of us (Alana/Fit) have done a great job becoming more focused on certain projects, some of us (Chris/Hungry) are still bouncing all over the walls every day and night trying to figure out what he really wants to do with his life. Before we get to different projects, we’d like to remind you that we’re “rebranding” our social media so that Hungry & Fit content is separate from our personal accounts. This has happened/is happening to our YouTube and Instagram so far, but we’re planning on doing the same for Twitter and even Email.

Moving back to those other projects, since you’ve always been a part of this little family! First, we’ll start with the most exciting one… Alana’s baby. 

Just One More Word – Alana is a writer, as you all know, but she doesn’t only write delicious recipes and amazing workouts. She’s written poetry (that has been published) and has been working on a fantasy series for years. Recently, after taking part of some rigorous writing challenges, she decided to start tracking her thoughts on this new blog. She only just created it a few weeks ago, but it’ll be a great resource for aspiring writers and everyone who wants to track her progress on her novel!

2017 Holiday Gift Guide!

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Kwanza, Chanukah, or just so happen to have a birthday (or anniversary) that falls in December, there’s a pretty good chance that you’re either going to be giving or receiving some gifts. For many, this whole process makes this month one of their favorites, but for some others, it brings nothing but stress. Lucky for you, we love everything about the holiday season so we present the Hungry & Fit 2017 Holiday Gift Guide! 

For the sake of convenience, everything here will be available on Amazon, since they ship everywhere at reasonable rates and can generally give you accurate shipping details. Also, above everything else, we’ve found that their return policy is extremely easy going. Also, we’re going to provide low and high end (not-so and pretty expensive) options, as well as items for gym rats and nerds. This should have a little something for everyone, we hope.

What is Giving Tuesday?

Was the holiday season always so hectic? I’m sure many of us remember when Black Friday didn’t even exist, although it might have been a few decades ago. Now, we’re even familiar with Small Business Saturday, and some of you might even know about Giving Tuesday. For those of you who don’t know about it, Giving Tuesday is the Tuesday that comes after Thanksgiving, after Black Friday and after Small Business Saturday. It is a day designed for us to take some action for someone else and give back to the greater good. We’re always trying to help, but sometimes we need help with the how.

My family would be considered middle, or even upper-middle class, so we were always used to having plenty of clothes to wear. As my brother and I tried to donate many of our old clothes to a charity, we had some issues with the approaches that certain non-profits were taking. Large executive salaries, questionable budgets, an overall lack of transparency and a weak personal connection with the community drew us away from many of the bigger name charities. Who knew that it would be so hard to give something away for free and feel good about it?

While we ended up collecting bags of clothes, gathering a group of a dozen friends, taking them all onto the New York City Subway on one of the coldest winter days I can remember, and physically handing them to homeless individuals throughout the Bronx and Manhattan, we realize that opportunity may not be available to everyone. Whether it is a lack of extra clothes, the fact that you live far away from a city, or some other reason, it can sometimes seem challenging to find a good cause. Fortunately, there are actually people and organizations, everywhere, that are in need or your help.

Here are some of our reasons why we like to give and how we go about doing it. Some are very time-consuming and others are extremely easy, but all of them are rewarding. Feel free to add any of your suggestions in the comment section below; we’d love to hear about causes that are near and dear to your hearts.
