My guest today — Marni Wasserman — is no stranger to the health and wellness world. Her life is rooted in healthy eating, healthy living, and being a healthy mom. And not only is she a nutritionist and chef, but she’s also the co-host of the highly-acclaimed hit podcast, The Ultimate Health Podcast, as well as the brand new podcast, The Ultimate Baby Podcast. She’s also the author of Fermenting for Dummies and Plant-Based Diet For Dummies!
Marni uses her passion and experience to educate individuals and mommas on how to adopt a real food diet and balanced lifestyle through simple, natural strategies. What you’ll hear in today’s interview are not only the strategies that Marni uses in her own life but the advice she gives to women all over the world. Marni is truly a natural-born entrepreneur. She’s an incredible example of when you put your passion first, your business will naturally follow. She is transparent in how she forms her own health decisions, and that transparency and natural capacity to teach have made her a master educator in the realm of healthy eating, healthy living, and most recently, healthy parenting. I’ve known Marni for many years, I admire her work deeply, and I am so excited for the opportunity to bring this conversation to you all today!

[43:15] Food for thought: what motivated your own dietary choices? Was it the science, was it how it felt, was it a prescription from somebody else, was it the government food guide or was it your mom’s way of cooking? And is there an opportunity now to elevate the type of food you’re taking into your system; moving it off of autopilot and into a state of conscious eating? And for those who have been eating a certain way for a long time, would you be willing to challenge your own eating dogma if it meant you would actually feel better? Are you interested in breaking the rules of the diet you are on, in a quest for even better health? Are you sticking to your diet because you identify with it or because it is making you feel your absolute best? Let’s continue this conversation over on The Entrepology Collective!

Two years ago, someone asked me what supplements I take to maintain my health, energy, and edge — and they were surprised that I only took four things consistently. For myself and my patients, there are four basics that support — at a foundational level — nearly every system in our bodies. In my quest for the highest quality ingredients and the easiest system for consistently incorporating supplementation to my routine, I formulated and manufactured my own line of foundational supplements. Trusted for myself and my patients, and under the guidance of your own healthcare provider, I’m excited to invite you to check out our foundational product line: Badass Basics. Learn more or order the products yourself by visiting BadassFuel.com!
CALL TO ACTION
The food choices we make every single day provide an opportunity to reorient our own personal leadership over and over again. And part of leadership is acknowledging when you need to make a change (because there’s rarely one thing that is going to serve you for your entire life). Marni’s journey really speaks to this. We do not need to be dogmatic with our diets; ultimately, it is important to simply do what is best for you and makes you feel your best.
Marni and I would love to hear about what your current diet looks like and where you see there could be room for improvement. Follow-up with us on The Entrepology Collective and let us know!
“I’m always keeping myself nourished with good fuel. That’s 100% … why I’m able to function somehow on no sleep with a new baby.” — Marni Wasserman
“I started to realize that some of the foods I was eating, were irritating to the gut. … And then, when I got the diagnosis that I had Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, … I realized that these foods were even more of a hindrance to my health.” — Marni Wasserman
“People need to know why they’re in the camp that they choose. If they’re doing it because they genuinely feel good and that diet is resonating with them, then awesome.” — Marni Wasserman
“I find that when people are intuitive and know that they’re eating the right way for themselves versus, ‘Oh, I follow so-and-so online and this is what they say to eat.’” — Marni Wasserman
“Even if things do go a little bit sideways during your pregnancy or during your delivery experience … keep your mindset strong and just be okay with the way that it goes.” — Marni Wasserman
