Top 3 Homemade Dog Food Toppers
The Rainbow Approach
If you are interested in the latest diet information or even if you just read the headlines on any magazine as you were waiting in line at the checkout you will know that nature's colourful fruit and veg are essential to maintaining a healthy and balanced diet.
Now pooch doesn’t get the opportunity to read the latest fad diet headlines. (Thank goodness. Can you imagine fido looking over his glasses flicking through Pooche's Weekly..) So they rely on us to make the right choices for their health.
I wanted to share with you a few delicious toppers that pooch will favour as well as giving him wonderful healthy nutrition to help spice up otherwise boring meals.
The Sunday Roast
Grab dog-friendly veggies (pumpkin, carrots, green beans, sweet potato, etc.) and roast up a big tray full. Enough to leave a few meals in the fridge as an easy grab and go meal for busy weeknights. You can add in some extra goodness with a drizzle of coconut oil. It is as simple as that. Add the roast veggies on top of your pooch's kibble for a quick and delicious meal they will adore.
Pro Tip: You can always spice things up with a little turmeric, parsley and basil if you want to take these humble veg to the next gourmet level.
Add steamed and diced frozen vegetables to low-sodium vegetable stock, serve in a bowl separate or mix with dry food and sprinkle with nori seaweed. Make sure your stock is room temperature so you don’t give poor fido a facial. Watch him lap up this delicious treat.
Pro Tip: Freeze stock in an ice cube tray and pop one out for your pup on a hot day. This is fun to chase around on the grass and a good way to cool them off in the summer months.
Berry Nice Pudding
What better way to finish the week than with an antioxidant-packed treat. Whip up this delicious food by using defrosted berries mixed into well-cooked rice adding a drizzle of coconut oil and a sprinkle of cinnamon to finish. Ugh! move over Rover, give me a bowl of that for dessert, please!
It doesn’t need to be complex, they just need to like the foods we give them. What better way to incorporate good health into their diet while we try to do the same for our own. Stick to the colours of the rainbow as a guide and if there is ever any doubt about any fruit, vegetable or spice that you shouldn’t give to your pet always speak to your vet.
