Home Cooked Food Recipe For Your Pet
We have had quite a few people call or email and ask what and how we cook for our pets. So this email contains what we do for our gang. We did try doing the raw
meats and veggies for them, but they actually preferred this slow cooked food.
This week make it beef, next week chicken, the following week lamb, the following week pork and then back to beef. Maybe it was the variety of tastes they preferred over the raw, we never could figure that part out.
Anyway, here is our proven recipe:
Cook a stew once or twice a week.
Bring some clean, wholesome inexpensive cuts of beef--about 2-5 lbs--covered with water to a rolling boil. It is always better to cook with a bone in the beef as this cooks out the gelatin that is so necessary for strong ligaments and cartilage.
Let it boil for just a few minutes, then drain the ugly water, rinse the beef and then cover the beef again with fresh water and bring to a boil again.
Next, add all kinds of vegetables either fresh or frozen vegetables, carrots, potatoes, yams, celery, broccoli, bok choi, cauliflower, spinach, peas (excellent source of fiber), green beans,beets, cabbage, turnips, parsnips, corn, yams, okra, lettuce of all different types. Basically anything we eat. Now add two
tablespoons of olive oil (this brings all the flavors together). Add a bay leaf or two for flavor. Maybe a little salt and pepper.
Bring all this to a boil in a soup pot, then simmer for a good four to five hours.
Then take the meat out and remove the small sharp bones if any (like chicken legs and thighs--these are a little dangerous); bigger bones (to chew on) or smaller bones (to eat and swallow)should be fine.
Next in a pint jar or old pickle jar shake 2-3 tablespoons of flour and 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 water together. Shake really well to make it very smooth. Now add slowly to the vegetables and broth in the soup pot and stir. This will thicken the broth and
make a nice gravy. Next add back in the meat in chunks and serve this delicious home cooked food slightly warmed every meal. Before you serve it, we suggest you add a couple of pinches of ProBac Adult and the Vita Pak and one drop (just one) of
Concentrated Trace Minerals. This way you will be absolutely certain your pet's are getting all the vitamins and minerals their little bodies require on a daily basis.
That's all there is to it. All you do is make sure you have the ingredients in the house and have this on the stove as you are cleaning the house on weekends. Once you get a routine, you will find this "slow cooking" is easy on you and fantastic for
your dog or cats. Plus you won't believe how great it makes the house smell, your pet healthy and you save money too.
Have a visit with your local grocery store butcher department. They would love to sell you the meat they can't sell because it is past the "expiration date" for people, and it will be a lot less expensive too. All you have to do is ask. We are
certain you will be pleasantly surprised if they know you are taking such good care of your pets.
One of our customers has a butcher that grinds up left over cuts of meat and organ meat and makes it into a burger and freezes it into blocks. All you have to do is ask with a smile and a good heart. They will respond, you watch!!
Give this a try right along with de-toxing your pet and we are certain you are going to have the happiest pet in the world right in your own home.
If your pet is having bowel movement problems, add oatmeal to its diet. If it is too thin, add some pasta otherwise forget the pasta. Pasta makes an animal fat just like it does people. Brown rice is good, oats and barley added is good. Wheat germ added is good.
For variety, you could cook some eggs with or without the shell. Offer yogurt, ice cream, cottage cheese. Serve this separately from your slow cooking of course.
Your "babies" will really reflect the good food in good health, happiness and fewer vet bills by far.
This cooking recipe is what we do and we haven't bought a bag of commercial dog food in years and years. You will be amazed at the difference in your little pals and in the money you save.
Yours for a happy, healthy pet!
