Wellness Confidential: Lauren Bush Lauren on feel-good cardio and never going Paleo

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

Helping us debut this new series is Lauren Bush Lauren, CEO and founder of Feed Projects, which fight world hunger, who’s busy launching a holiday collection of do-good bags this week.

First thing I did when I woke up this morning: Made myself two eggs over-easy and looked at images of our new campaign.

Last thing I did before I went to sleep last night: Kissed my husband goodnight.

The one place I’d never wear yoga pants: To church or synagogue.

The workout I’m currently obsessed with: IntenSati, a feel-good workout that combines an amazing cardio, dance-like workout with affirmations.

The one wellness trend you’ll never see me try: The Paleo Diet (or most any diet). I’m a lifelong vegetarian and think it would be hard to cut out all dairy and grain from my diet. Plus, I like food too much to restrict what I can eat for a long period of time.

If sugar was a superfood, my diet would consist of: Coffee-flavored ice cream.

The last time I used my oven: Two weeks ago to make some roasted veggies from a recipe out of my favorite [Yotam] Ottolenghi cookbook, Plenty.

I never make a smoothie without adding: A little honey and protein powder.

If I were a fruit or vegetable, I’d be: A blueberry, because they’re sweet and tangy and really thrive in warmer climates.

I firmly believe that a woman can never have too many: Feed bags—and stamps on her passport.

The one song that I’ve been playing on repeat: Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire.”

The one beauty product that I’m always replenishing: My Clarins HydraQuench moisturizer.

My go-to spot for date night with my BF/GF/BFFs: I love staying in, cooking, and hanging with friends.

Where I go when I need to be alone: Anywhere in New York City with my iPhone, headphones, and a good podcast or music playing.

My most memorable sweaty moment is: When I first ran and completed the Run 10 Feed 10, a race that Feed holds each year. It was an amazing feeling to finish a 10k, and the fact that it is centered around providing meals to children and families here in America made it that much more empowering.
