Wake up, Class, Practice, Homework, Facebook, Bed. How many of you know this common routine? The truth is we all can be sucked into a daily routine that can make our days go by quickly instead of enjoying them. It’s pretty scary on how you can easily get pulled in to your day to day responsibilities and forget that you’re still suppose to enjoy life as well. Making sure that you still have your peace of mind in a world full of assignments, teachers , boyfriends and parents is very important. Check out different ways how to remix your daily routine!

New Environment??– So you always leave school, jump in your car, go home, grab something to eat and then get started on your homework. Well, why don’t you change up your environment?? Instead of rushing home tell the parentals that you’ll do your home work at a local café or library. Sometimes homework doesn’t feel so much like work when you’re surrounded by others who are focused too. Think about it, it’s less likely the at you’ll be distracted by the TV or your comfy bed. And who doesn’t love a tastey lemonade or passion tea while doing algebra homework??

Make Yourself Smile– Ok so I know this may sound a tad bit corny but think about it…How often do you take yourself too seriously?? Sometimes the best way to shake up your routine is to simply loosen up. So if it’s cracking up at a joke you remembered that your friend told your or doing a random dance break in the middle of your pile of homework, laughter is the best medicine in breaking up your routine. It serves as a reminder to simply have fun in life!

A Gift for Me!– Yes! You! You sometimes deserve to treat yourself. Even though parents don’t always admit how difficult it is to balance classes, extra-curricular activities, chores and a part time job, they do realize it! So yes, you deserve to give yourself a pat on the back for keeping your head above water during your busy days. So if it’s taking a walk at your fave park or grabbing your special treat at your local bakery, sometimes you just need to treat yourself!

Broccoli & Cheddar Pockets

1 -Refrigerated Thin Pizza Crust 11 oz
1/3 cup onion and chive cream cheese
¾ cup fresh broccoli, finely chopped
¾ cup red pepper, finely diced
¾ cup shredded cheddar
  • 1 Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • 2 Stretch or roll dough into 13×16-inch rectangle. Cut into four equal pieces.
  • 3 Mix the cream cheese, broccoli, peppers and cheddar in a bowl. Divide filling evenly onto half of each rectangle, leaving a ½-inch border along the edge. Fold dough in half over filling, press edges firmly. Crimp or use the tines of a fork to seal.
  • 4 Place pockets on cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Dried Fruit

Turkey Pinwheel


  • 1/2 cup light garden vegetable cream cheese (recommended: Philadelphia)
  • 4 wrap-size tortillas
  • lettuce
  • 1 (8-ounce) package turkey breast slices
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots


Spread 2 teaspoons veggie cream cheese over entire surface of each tortilla. Top cream cheese with 1/4 cup lettuce. Place 2 slices of turkey on 1/2 on each tortilla. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon shredded carrots on top of the turkey slices.

Roll the tortillas starting at the edge where you placed the turkey


1 batch granola, not yet baked
1 egg white

Large baking pan
Small bowl or ramekin


1. Mix your batch of granola.

2. Whisk an egg white in a small cup until it is frothy and foamy.

3. Stir the egg white into the granola. Spread the granola out in an even layer on your prepared baking sheet, and bake the granola according to the instructions in your recipe.

4. Take the granola out of the oven and let it cool COMPLETELY, preferably overnight, uncovered. When it cools completely it will be clumpy. If you pour it off the baking sheet while still hot it will break up into loose granola and not get the chance to clump up.

5. When the granola is completely cool, break up into clumpy chunks, and transfer to an airtight container for storage.
