Vitamin B6 - The Happy Vitamin

Vitamin B6 is known as the happy vitamin. I started taking this last fall after researching different supplements (this is the brand that I use). The difference that it has made in my life is really miraculous. 

I ran out of it sometime in March and didn't order it for a few weeks and during that time was a different person. My attitude was grumpy. My thoughts during a certain time of the month were scary. Yet as soon as I started taking it again they all disappeared. 

When I went to my yearly gynecological appointment I mentioned this to the nurse who was checking my vitals before the appointment. She told me that women who are on anti-depressants and then become pregnant take this during their pregnancies. It's that good.

Okay, two side notes here:
1. I have decided that from now on whenever I have to go to THAT appointment I will afterwards reward myself with a new pair of shoes. And for the mammogram? I will get a pink pair of shoes. It just seems that I should get something lovely after going through all of that ick.
2. If women can take a B6 supplement while they are pregnant instead of an anti-depressant why don't the doctors just tell them to take B6 in the first place?
Oh wait, I know why.
The FDA and the drug companies are in bed with each other and the kickbacks for the medical professionals is pretty good.

So, ladies, if you are having some trouble with clarity, or depression, or mood swings, or hormonal changes that cause attitude problems, I suggest getting a natural B6 supplement. This means from a health store, not a GNC or WalMart. You want to avoid chemical supplements at all costs. 

Go, get your B6 and be happy!


  1. I turned onto B vitamins during the worse years of my life. It helped me, with the Lord, to cope with the stress. I still take the vitamins and as you, notice a difference when I don't. For me, they calm and take the edge off of what would be stressful for most individuals. Co-workers going through "the change" have shared that it has helped them. Great post!

Small Changes: Peanut Butter and Jelly

I eat the same thing for breakfast every single day. Most people think it's weird, I just think of it as fuel to get my day started. I was never big on cereal, mostly because I don't like milk. Other than a little splash of it in my tea I don't drink it.

I start my day with an organic brown rice cake with peanut butter and jelly on it. It works for me. The peanut butter provides protein and the jelly provides the yum.

I prefer the Lundberg Farms brown rice cakes. Brown rice is a good carb, white rice is a bad carb. White rice has no nutritional value and turns to sugar in your system. Brown rice is a whole grain and is a much better choice. 
I get the lightly salted ones. I find these in the organic food section of my favorite grocery store.

Now, let's look at some peanut butter and jelly. For the peanut butter I just chose Skippy because it's a brand that everyone is familiar with. I prefer the natural peanut butters, but if you don't like the texture of them and …

It's Not A Blessing if you Had to Sin to Get it

Pretty strong words but also very true. I once heard a man say his girlfriend was, "A gift from God." 

Except she wasn't because she was still married to someone else. Glenn wiggled in and turned her head and snatched her away from her husband and children.

How dare he think God had anything to do with that.

He doesn't work that way. If you want His blessings then you need to walk closely with Him. He will never bless sin. He can't. He is unable to. Sin is what separates us from God. 

Glenn may think he is living a blessed life as he runs on emotions and feelings but nothing like this will prosper. In the end it will lead to destruction. 

It already has. The family he destroyed will never be the same. 

Small Changes: Shredded Cheese

Today we're not just talking cheese, we're talking shredded cheese. This is the time of year when everyone has a party or picnic to go to, and most of the time you need to bring a dish of some kind. Many of these dishes call for cheese.

Sidenote: I'm so in love with cheese that I have to restrict it from my diet 99% of the time. I cannot be trusted with the creamy goodness that is cheese. Colby. Cheddar. Mozzarella. Gouda. Gorgonzola. Monterey Jack. Cream. Pepper Jack. Sigh. I love cheese, but it does not love me. It tempts me ever so. Today at lunch I splurged and order chicken parm. I only ate about half of it and that should last me several months. My body works much better when I stay away from cheese and dairy in general. Though, surprisingly, ice cream does not affect me in a bad way. Hmmmm.....

Anyway, back to cheese. Many recipes call for shredded cheese and the food industry has listened and provided a myriad of choices in the shredded cheese department and they hav…
