About Mpho Tshukudu
My health approach.
I believe your weight issues will resolve themselves when you trust the wisdom of the ancestors, prepare your food slowly and eat it with people you love.
Your thoughts, moods and movement contribute to the quality of your life, because they affect your hunger, energy levels and sleep quality. It’s your lifestyle that makes your body beautiful and healthy. Not just your calorie kilojoule intake.

When my three year old son was diagnosed with food allergies and Mpho assisted me to plan simple, nutritious meals that are free of gluten, eggs and soya. My whole family eats from the same menus and she shared kid friendly muffins and cake recipes that perfect for my son.
After being diagnosed with high blood pressure, I was referred to Mpho for nutrition education. Mpho help me to integrate the traditional foods that I grew up with into my diet, and my blood pressure has normalised. I lost 15 cm around my waist circumference and started cycling with the boys without being breathless.
After a long day at the office, my comfort food is ting ya mabele, morogo was lerotho le dintshu. Thanks to Mpho Tshukudu I know that my comfort food is gluten-free, fermented, low GI, organic, foraged, sustainable/ drought resistant, organic, anti-oxidant rich. Meeting Mpho has been a blessing and total transformation. She help me to integrate the traditional foods into my diet, and my blood sugar levels are high well controlled than before.
