Planning for Home Cooking for your Pet dog. Here a good start for the weekend.
This is a bulk recipe for those with more than one dog who want to feed well balanced home cooked food.
approx. 5 lbs of ground beef or chicken
3/4 cup canola oil
4-5 cloves garlic
32 cups water
8-10 cups processed veggies (various)
(carrots, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, bean sprouts, potatoes, sweet potatoes, red peppers, spinach, beets, lettuce, tomatoes, etc.)
NO ONIONS (not good for dogs)
2-3 cans kidney beans
1/2 molasses (optional)
42-45 oz oatmeal (quick cooking oats)
eggs can be added to boost protein
In a large 24qt pot brown ground meat, add canola oil and garlic. When well cooked, add water.
Bring to boil, then add veggies that have been processed, (frozen or canned veggies will work too).
Use dried kidney beans and soak them the night before preparing a batch of food.
While cooking the meat, put the beans in another pot cooking them. Once cooked, they are added to the above mixture.
Next, the oatmeal is added. Frequent stirring is necessary at this point as the mixture will stick. Remove from heat, cool and put into containers.
The above mixture feeds 3 Boxers for 1 week. Occasionally add pumpernickel bread and some times substitute brown rice for some of the oatmeal.
This recipe is very flexible. I also add a mixture called Healthy powder to each meal. I feed twice daily and add 1 tsp of healthy powder to each meal for each dog.
