Hey Royals, Today I wanted to talk to you about postpartum shedding and hair loss because it's really hitting home for me.

As soon as you hear these words, do you think of the worse? Moving on. I'm sure all of us all of us have heard...Read More

Update: Rice Water Challenge

Hey Royals, This post is an update on the rice water challenge. I began the rice water challenge on January 8, 2019. I fermented my brown rice but, I made the mistake of not adding enough water in beginning. This happened because I didn't take into account that the rice would swell.
