are grains okay? Which ones?

Edit: looked up the ingredients of what I'm feeding right now. It fits your specs, but has chicken byproducts, corn, and wheat in it. No peas, potatoes, kelp, or alfalfa. (LOL, not a "high end" product.. I stayed out of the "I feed pedigree" thread for a reason.)

Also browsing ingredient lists of other foods, I think Nutro Ultra fits your description. It was hard to find one- I had no idea how many premium dog foods contain potatoes and peas!

I think 4Health might fit the bill.

Nutro Ultra ingredients:
Chicken, chicken meal, whole brown rice, ground rice, rice bran, chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols), lamb meal, salmon meal, natural flavors, flaxseed, sunflower oil (preserved with mixed tocopherols), dried plain beet pulp, rolled oats, potassium chloride, egg product, tomato pomace, dried pomegranate, dried blueberry, dried cranberry, dried pumpkin, dried spinach, dried carrot, salt, choline chloride, vitamin E supplement, zinc sulfate, zinc proteinate, ferrous sulfate, l-ascorbyl-2-polyphosphate (source of vitamin C), l-carnitine, biotin, niacin supplement, potassium iodide, copper proteinate, calcium pantothenate, vitamin B12 supplement, riboflavin supplement (source of vitamin B2), vitamin A supplement, beta carotene, pyridoxine hydrochloride (source of vitamin B6), thiamine mononitrate (source of vitamin B1), sodium selenite, manganese proteinate, manganous oxide, vitamin D3 supplement, folic acid

4Health would work too.

Also could you do a lower protein food and add an egg daily to boost it? Then you could look at stuff like California Naturals and Natural Balance LIDs.

Is sweet potato ok? Pinnacle Trout and Sweet Potato seems to fit.
