Dr. Jesse Chappus and Marni Wasserman are committed to helping you reach your full potential—in work, in life, and in health. They started the Ultimate Health Podcast five years ago with the goal to interview the best health and wellness experts from around the world and share this powerful information with their listeners. Today, they have surpassed 300 episodes, adopted a pup aptly named Goji, and have inspired millions of people to feel their best.
We recently chatted with them to learn how they got started with the podcast. Read on to discover their favorite episodes and get tips on how to start your own journey toward lifelong wellness.
Jesse always had a passion for podcasting and knew the medium really well from a podcast he cohosted previously. We started the podcast part-time while Jesse worked as a chiropractor and Marni ran a cooking studio in Toronto. The podcast was just something on the side at first and now it has become our full-time job! We’ve been podcasting for five years now and we’re so grateful for what we get to do and the message we get to spread!

I have learned so much about the body while getting my degree in Kinesiology and my through my education at Chiropractic College. This has given me a strong foundation when preparing for interviews and having conversations with other health experts. Marathon running has taught me the values of consistency and hard work, which transfers over to being a successful podcaster and entrepreneur.
First and foremost, fermented foods are essential for gut health. They provide natural living probiotics that are helpful for digestion and may improve immune function. Fermented foods are easy to add to your diet in the form of sauerkraut, kimchee, kefir, kombucha, fermented veggies, and yogurt. It’s extremely easy to make fermented foods at home, but if you’re intimidated, it’s just as easy to purchase them. Be sure to look for organic and unpasteurized sources.
If you start with real, whole foods, then the dish is automatically healthy! Starting with a base of plant foods and lots of healthy fats is another easy way to keep things healthy. We’re big fans of a well rounded diet that’s rich in quality animal protein, colorful veggies, healthy fats and in-season fruit. Some of our favourite dishes include large salads, tacos with Siete tortillas and ground turkey, homemade grass-fed burgers on grain-free buns, baked sweet potato fries and homemade pizza on grain-free crust.
We feed Goji a raw diet that’s species-specific. It consists of raw animal protein, lots of raw vegetables and supplements in the form of fish oils, turmeric, green powder, probiotics, and quail eggs. Dogs are meant to eat real food, too! Goji’s health is thriving and her coat is so shiny and vibrant.
We love that it caters to all different dietary preferences and has such a wide range of products. Thrive Market makes it possible for people to find the quality foods they need for amazing prices! The website is easy to navigate, and we loveThrive Market’s mission of giving back to families and people in need.
We love getting coconut butter for desserts, smoothies and elixirs. Jackson’s Honest sweet potato chips are a favorite snack. Jesse loves grass-feed Epic bars for a snack and yerba mate tea for some morning energy. Sharing a Hu Chocolate Bar makes for a great nighttime snack.
What we love most is the ability to search under a specific food category. This makes it so much easier to find what we’re looking for and helps us eat according to our dietary preferences. For us this includes grain-free, gluten-free, and paleo.
The blender, of course! We use it for smoothies, dips, sauces, and elixirs.
