This is just a quick post to share a great recipe I got from a friend for home made dog food. I have some exciting bead news coming very soon, but in the meantime, here's how you can make a tasty treat for your dog at home with simple ingredients.
If you're concerned about the additives in commercial dog food, or just like the idea of doing something nice for your furry best friend, this recipe will make enough to keep you and your buddy licking your lips for some time.
Home Made Dog Food Recipe
6 cups long grain , cooked in 9 cups water (for 45 minutes)
2 1/2 pounds ground turkey
2 heaping TBL's crushed garlic
1/4 cup soy sauce
1-16 oz pkg frozen
1-16 oz pkg frozen mixed veggies
1 large can pumpkin
2 cans white beans
1/3 cup mixed vitamins *
1/3 cup bone meal *
In a large pan cook turkey, garlic and soy sauce until almost done. Add eggs, cooking til set. Add both frozen veggies and stir til defrosted. Turn off heat. Add vitamins and bone meal. Stir well. Add pumpkin, beans, and rice. This filled three of my kitchen's largest containers and mixing it was a workout, but you can freeze it in smaller containers and thaw when needed.
Mixed Vitamins ** (I found these ingredients at Whole Foods)
2 cups Nutritional Yeast
1 cup Lecithin Granuales
1/4 cup Kelp (Seaweed) Powder
My 80 lb. dog will get 2 cups of this twice a day. Your mileage may vary.
