Welcome to Wellness Confidential, our quick-fire interview series where we ask hard-hitting (okay, entertaining) wellness questions, lightning round-style.

This week we’re chatting with Heather Thomson, Real Housewives of New York alum and founder of the clothing line Yummie by Heather Thomson.

The last time I used my oven

This weekend! I am a weekday warrior—often maximizing the benefits of living in New York City and ordering in—but on the weekends I love to play whole foods chef for my family.

My go-to spot for date night

BondSt in NYC. It’s simply the best, I call it sushi candy! And their dry saketinis are a favorite.

If I were a fruit or veggie, I’d be

An apple. Not only are they a crunchy and delicious snack, but apples are a super-fruit—packed with antioxidants, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. They are also a part of my history as a retired Real Housewife of New York City…. Holla!

My most memorable sweaty moment

My first “What’s Your Everest” climb with No Barriers. We climbed four 14,000 foot peaks together in a day in beautiful Colorado. This climb gave me the opportunity to look at pushing past my own—sometimes self-inflicted—barriers. It was life-changing.

Most people don’t know this about me, but

I just graduated from The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and I’m now a certified health and wellness coach. My goal is to be a part of the much-needed change in the way we feed ourselves and, namely, our children in this country—which entails educating people with every bite.

If sugar were a superfood, my diet would consist of

Milkshakes!

The beauty products I’m always replenishing

Lip gloss and lip conditioners—I’m addicted.

Where I go when I need to be alone

I love escaping into the mountains: to climb them, to ski them, to bike them, or just to hike and explore. Being outside in nature is totally therapeutic for me.

The one wellness trend you’ll never see me try

Fad dieting. As a health and wellness coach, I can tell you diets are for short-term jump-starts. Real long-term changes in personal nutrition or long-term weight loss are dependent on steady, healthy lifestyle changes, not diets.
