If you’re still feeding your dog commercial dog food, we would suggest using this meal as a dressing or topping by combining the two over the course of three or four days. Reduce your dog’s other food accordingly so as to avoid unhealthy weight gain.
This recipe would be just as nourishing for you and your family as it would be for your dog. We tried it and it tastes just great. Add some boiled potatoes and some broccoli or green beans and you have an uncomplicated but very filling and nutritious meal for you and your family. Then add the Eggshell Powder and the salmon oil to your dog’s portion of the meal.
- 500g (1lb 2oz) Turkey Mince
- 84g (3oz) Lentils
- 75g (2 ½oz) Carrots skin on, finely diced
- 67g (2 ¼oz) Peas frozen
- 58g (2oz) Butternut Squash peeled, finely diced
- 42g (1 ½oz) Kale finely chopped
- 8g (¼oz) Blueberries halved
- 500mg (tiny pinch) Himalayan Rose Pink Salt
- 4g (1 heaped tablespoon) Poultry Herb Blend
- 5g (1 level teaspoon) Eggshell Powder
- 35ml (2 tablespoons) Salmon Oil
Add turkey mince to a pan with 285ml (½ pint) of water. Add the Poultry Herb Blend and cook on a low heat until the meat turns brown and any liquid is clear. Drain any liquid into the lentil/vegetable pan and set cooked meat aside. Add lentils to turkey water. Cook for approximately 10 minutes before adding vegetables, longest cooking times first. In this case, carrots first followed 5 minutes later by the peas and butternut squash. When cooked, turn off heat and add the kale and the blueberries. After about 5 minutes add the Eggshell Powder, salt and salmon oil to the lentils and vegetables and then blend all the ingredients together. Allow mix to cool before apportioning and/or serving. Either freeze what you don’t immediately need or keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.
