|Where's my taco?!|
|Eyes on the prize|
|This is what I wound up getting. A chip with some meat, cheese and lettuce. Mom said something about keeping my figure. She's the one who had 7 tacos (fast metabolism, but that's beside the point.)!|
|Oh well, I'll take what I can get.|
My minions and I are fed homemade food. I have terrible allergies to corn and soy, and the high end dog kibbles are $$$$. So, the peeps started cooking for us! We've been on homemade food for about a year now, and are NEVER going back to commercial dog food!
Benefits of homemade food:
Gorgeous, shiny, soft coats
Small, not-too-smelly poop
More muscle, less fat
|I was less than slender on kibble. This is me on homemade food.|
Clean, white teeth
No "doggy odor" Even though my breed in general has low odor, we'd start to stink of commercial dog food after about two weeks. We get monthly baths now, and no stink!
Strong immune system
The same cost (or less) than high quality dog food
You control and know everything that goes into your dog
You can tailor the food easily to your dog's specific needs
Overall stunning health
This week's food contains:
1 pack of ground beef
1 bag of mixed veggies; carrots, cauliflower and broccoli
2 celery stalks
3 potatoes (cooked)
1 cup pineapple
3 TBSP ground flaxseed
A small pinch of salt
1 TBSP cinnamon
|This is the radish, potatoes and celery|
|The other veggies|
|The veggie portion|
|Fresh picked apples|
|We cook the meat, Mom's too squeamish for raw.|
|Veggies, apples and pinapple|
|Took mom about 45mins to an hour, total, to make.|
That will last us about a week, but we eat a LOT for our size. In a household with less active pups, this would be a 2-3 weeks supply.
I (8lbs) get 1 1/2 cups, Phoenix (4-5lbs) gets 1, Auggie (12-14lbs) gets 4 and Boston (13-15lbs) gets 3-4. We also get a snack of yogurt, a kelp supplement and ground eggshell daily. Added to this, depending on the day, is pumpkin or cottage cheese.
Who's coming for dinner?
