Healthy vegan dog recipe 3

We present you with our third healthy recipe in this series, to keep your pup absolutely delighted!

Cooking for your pup has never been easier. We do so with pleasure and love.

His health is of vital importance, and he is not going to get health out of a commercialized ‘meat’ bag which has come straight off a conveyor belt of cruelty. Commercialized ‘meat’ based dog foods contain dangerous, unwanted chemicals, antibiotics, and left over sludge and slop from slaughter facility floors, there is nothing within those bags that offer your dog good nutritional health.

The rise of cancer rates in canines has become rather alarming. Not to mention the increase of skin irritations, ear and eye infections, congenital problems, tooth decay, mouth ulcerations, degenerative eye diseases, dementia, lethargy, obesity, premature death, gosh the list is endless.

Many people are surprised to learn that not only can dogs enjoy vibrant health on a vegan diet, but just like people, their physical condition actually improves as a result of eliminating animal products and bi-products from their meal plans.

Your pup deserves the very best! Just as you are concerned about your own good health, we ought to be concerned about theirs, and therefore deliver the very best for them, in order to encourage and maintain optimum health and happiness.

This recipe is an inspiration to encourage, and to show you how very easy it is to improve your dogs health on a well balanced vegan diet. The recipes are shared with all of our rescues whom have embraced, and are currently fully enjoying their new, healthier way of dining!

Within the two week window period, commencing Feb 1st 2015, we have already noted positive improvement in skin and coat condition, and body weight. We are therefore delighted to share this information with all who have canines as companion friends, and no longer want to ‘guilt’ about feeding them cruelty! There is no reason why canines cannot thrive on a proper well balanced vegan diet!

So without further ado, we present his royal highness dinner, made for 2 medium sized dogs, enough for three meals.

3 sweet potato (chopped and boiled)

1 cup brown rice (boiled)

3 raw carrots (grated)

1 plateful of pumpkin (chopped, roasted in olive oil, without the seeds)

1 cup oats (boiled)

1 cup non gmo soy chunks (soaked in 2-3 cups water, then boiled)

To make:

P.S. All of these food items are quick to prepare, I like to do them separately, then add them together once prepared.

Once cooked or prepared, you can bung portions of each together and mix, and refrigerate the rest in separate containers.

Add a couple of t of flax seed ground, and a couple of t of brewers yeast flakes to each meal.

You may want to add additional supplements such as Taurine, L-Carnitine

Portion the balance of your recipe, and refrigerate for a follow up meal. Remember to serve warm, you can do this by bringing your kettle to the boil and pouring a little water over the next follow up meal, then drizzle a little hemp, olive, or sunflower oil for added nutritional value and great taste.

Note: Refrain from adding salt or sugar to your dogs diet. It is not good for them, and they cannot digest this. And do keep your pup hydrated at all times with fresh water!

Has this article inspired you to switch your canine to a healthy vegan diet? Please do let us know! We would love to hear from you, and do share your vegan recipes with us!

Healthy vegan dog recipe 2

Our initial project to stop cruelty by consciously switching canines diets, from cruel meat based commercial dog food brands, to that of healthy vegan home cooked meals, resumed in February. When we investigated the subject, we were horrified to find out what actually goes into meat based commercial foods, and the harm that they cause to domesticated canines. Most of the content is scraped off the floors of those dreaded slaughter houses. Commercial ‘meat’ dog foods are also full of the same preservatives and chemicals that we all have been trying to avoid. They are not healthy for canines, not healthy for other animals, and not healthy for our environment. Time to make the concious switch for them in order for them to benefit for optimum health!

Many may be sceptical still but there is nothing to terrified of. Just as we value our own health, we want to do better for our very best friends. There are a few simple steps to follow. I.E.: Which food we ought not feed them, and which foods are totally nutritious for them. Our main aim is to show you how easy it actually is, to switch them from an unhealthy diet to one that is completely healthy and most enjoyable, and compatible for them, without compromising your pups health in any way what so ever! Many are currently moving into the mainstream of this switch, and the living proof that their canines are happier, healthier and absolutely love their meals is proof in itself!

So without further ado, we offer our second very easy home crafted simple healthy recipe for your canine to enjoy! 

In our very first inspiration, we mentioned to fill half of his bowl with a high protein base, the balance you can fill with carbs or grain, and a good variety of veg (both from the green side for iron, as well as something from the yellow/orange rainbow for vitamin A. Here we varied it a little though offering a slightly different ‘zing’ to his well deserved, balanced meal.

Our base was brown rice and sweet potato (roasted in their jackets together with roast butternut with skins, in a little olive oil). You can chop these up prior to roasting. If you prefer to boil, by all means do, (we simply wanted to do something with a little difference and flavour).  We added chopped, boiled kale for an added green mix (iron),  and pinto beans boiled then (mashed) for that extra boost of protein, a little flax for omega, and a little kelp for superfood vitamins. There was no need to add further oil to this recipe, since we already roasted his sweet potatoes and butternut in it.

You may want to add an additional supplement such as  L-Carnitine or Taurine to your pups meal for additional amino acids which are the ‘building blocks’ for good health. And mix all together with your above recipe. Serve up their meal warm!

You could bulk up and make for the week and then simply refrigerate, and warm up with hot boiled water on the next meal. Remember no salt and no sugar, it’s bad for them, they cannot digest this, and they don’t need it in their diets!

Note: When you cook items such as legumes you may want to bulk up on, for your own convenience on saving time, then portion, and freeze as they do take longer to cook. I do recommend this as opposed to using the tinned variety. It’s always nice to have these on hand, then simply defrost and make use of when ever you need. I like the convenience of this.

Do try this! My guys once again loved their meal and cleaned their bowls completely! Smiles all round !

Great first vegan recipe for dogs.

I realize that yes it may be a slightly scary thought at first, to consider your companion friends right by your side for ethics regarding their meal plan, as it may have been for some of you to go vegan at first but, you have to simply just jump right into it knowing that it is a far healthier option for them to eat a well balanced home made vegan meal made with absolute love versus the commercial ‘meat’ branded ‘pet’ food products bought at stores!

It is a well known fact today that most meat based commercial brands carry very little nutritional content in them, and they are made up of substances derived from cruelty, as well as substances that are not fit for human consumption, so why give it to your very best friend, when the end result promotes skin irritations, cancer, ear and eye infections, congenital problems, tooth decay, mouth ulcerations, degenerative eye diseases, dementia, lethargy, obesity, premature death, gosh the list is endless.

Be confidant with switching your dog to a cruelty free healthy diet. You are doing him justice and shall spend far less time at the vets! Know that you are providing your pup with the very best love through a healthy well balanced meal prepared with absolute love and care.

Try this ! My guys loved it and I had a jolly good sampling of it too! Too delish! 

You want to make the first half of their meal high in protein,  so here you can make good use of beans/legumes (lentils or pinto beans), are wonderful as a base (be sure to cook them well then mash them up or process them).

You can then fill up with brown rice and finally a jolly good veg combo variety.

Add carrot for Vitamin A, and leafy greens for Iron. Be sure to chop this up, boil in plain water (do not add salt or sugar). Mix this altogether with your protein.

Add a little ground flax seed( for great omega), as well as kelp (superfood vitamins), and a t or drizzle of organic cold pressed coconut oil, and a sprinkle of  nutritional yeast for vitamin B! Mix this all together.

You may want to add an additional supplement such as  L-Carnitine or Taurine to your pups meal for additional amino acids which are the ‘building blocks’ for good health. And mix all together with your above recipe.

You could bulk up and make for the week and then simply refrigerate, and warm up with hot boiled water on the next meal.

My guys loved this meal!  Do try it! Yum!  Don’t you already feel so much at ease knowing exactly what goes into your pups meal, ensuring that he doesn’t get swooped up in the industrial conveyor belt cruelty that makes so many so ill today!

I shall be posting regular recipes and inspirations for our beloved friends who deserve the very best care when it comes to nutritional value and health ! We want to see healthy, happy, thriving pups who so look forward to their meals!
