Intro: How to Make Healthy Dog Food
My dog has lost interest in eating dry dog food. I noticed she would eat it only if she is very hungry and there is nothing else to eat period. A friend of mine shared how he feeds his dog which is about the same size as mine.
Step 1: Get Ingridients
1. Kirkland Normandy vegetable mix
2. Organic gluten free brown rice
3. Extra lean ground beef
Protein can be varied. Rotisserie chicken, Chopped lean steaks or your dogs favorite protein of your choice.
Step 2: Cook Rice in Rice Boiler
Rice is the ingredient that will last you for months so don't by cheap rice. $13 will buy you organic brown gluten free rice.
Step 3: Cook Protein and Steam Veggies
Make sure you cook the meat well and don't overcook the veggies. I just defrosted them and brought the water to boil before I removed and drained all water.
Step 4: Chop the Veggies
Your dog will pick out all the meat and leave most of the other stuff alone so you need to chop and mix well so it is not possible to pick and choose :)
I used food processor. Only chop the veggies and then do the mixing by hand in a large bowl.
Step 5: Store the Food in Pyrex 2.6L Glass Containers
I did not make enough of it to freeze. I have a big dog so cooking for more then a week is not possible. Don't use plastic containers to store food.
