Veganized Domino’s Pizza

Yes, you read right! I veganized a Domino’s pizza pie today. I was inspired to order it because I had a free medium pie offer from the pizza franchise. As apart of their rewards program for several previous orders, I got to customize a 12-inch medium pizza for free and only paid delivery fees. I did some research and found this article Veganize Pizza Delivery from PETA2. Following their direction I got a thin crust pie with no cheese, regular robust tomato sauce, mushrooms, banana peppers (personal fave!), and spinach. This was the outcome:

The pizza was decent. I found that there’s 2 things to consider when veganizing a Domino’s pie. First thing is that you should definitely add extra of each vegetable topping you pick. It will be 10x more satisfying and filling with more toppings. The thin crust is exactly that and felt as thin as a tortilla to me. The second thing is totally consider carrying it out in person or the distance they’ll have to deliver it to you. Light sauce can mean for a dry pizza. 😭 Overall, I’m glad that I found a doable fast food option!

Meditation in Under 2 Minutes


I found this super short & funny video about meditation that I wanted to share. I’ve been meditating for a few years and recently it’s gained a lot more attention in society. I think that’s a great, positive thing for people to be excited about though. But from one soul to another, here is a truly simple video for anyone who meditates. From beginner to expert it’s always nice to review the essentials. I just downloaded the app Headspace on my iPhone to help make meditation more apart of my daily regimens. It’s also available for Android and accessible on desktop computers. I’ll be sure to write a review on my use and if it helps me. 😊

Namaskar!

Your Searches, Planting Trees

I hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend in one way or another. I’m spending it by relaxing with the mixed weather we’re having here in NYC. Anywho, I wanted to share this search engine called Ecosia that I’ve been using for over a year now. It uses the ad dollars companies put up to show on search engines to plant trees. So essentially when you’re doing research, using Ecosia, each ad plants a tree. All you would have to do is either install it as an extension on your current web browser (I use Google Chrome) or go to Ecosia.org like you’d go to Google.com.

With environmental concerns and awareness becoming more & more substantial, I always think of how I might be able to help. And also, how can other people get involved even if it’s remotely. If you can’t find time to participate in things like volunteering or activism as much as you’d like so this adds value to something you’re already doing in your everyday life. When you’re on your individual computer’s Ecosia page, it will even tell you how many trees you help plant in the top right corner. Unfortunate to say though, it resets for every different browser and computer used so there won’t be a total tally unless you’re probably keeping your own record.

Furthermore, I have found Ecosia‘s search engine to be lacking on the information side. You always have to be careful when you’re looking up facts in the first place but I was not fully satisfied with the results it yielded. Google has always been, by far, the best search engine tool in the last almost two decades of existing. But when researching something that I know is an easy search and rather direct, Ecosia is the way. It’s for such a great cause!

Kindness as a Purpose

I really wanted to share this short yet intriguing blog post that I enjoyed earlier this week. Short question & answer prompts that bring a little insight to humanhood and our purpose. Take a minute to pass by Thriving Under Pressure and read “What if our only life purpose was to be kind?

My favorite line is, “Life purpose is a way of being in this world.”
Enjoy reading!
