SHUDI is about being grounded, true grace and honesty. We love what exudes from that. SHUDI is an acronym for "show up differently."
For us, that inner stability, peace and joy does manifest into how we cook, how we look at life, and how we see the world when we travel in it.

We're about nourishing beyond the superficial and reaching above the mundane.
We'd love to inspire you to do the same as we share travel stories, thoughts and recipes.

Aside from that, our lifestyles actively includes parenting, traveling, meditation, entertaining, camping, baking, cooking and lots of humor.

Thanks for being here.

Always wishing you the best,
Mahalia, Naomi, and Margaret
