|I used nutritiondata.com for information on phosphorus content and made up recipes so I wasn't guessing. Boiled chicken was the lowest phosphorus lean meat, egg whites have virtually no phosphorus and I decided against giving Sassy any veggies at all in favor of more meat. Meats have more phosphorus than calories and veggies tend to be the same but are lower calories of course. Since meat has the protein Sassy really wanted that worked out better for her. Yes, I could feed several ounces of veggies for one ounce of meat but she didn't want veggies!
When Max started eating raw I went very gradually. Last plant product to go was the canned pumpkin. I gave it up because it came out exactly the way it came in. That stuff is pureed and heavily cooked and he couldn't get anything out of it! I do know Sassy digested all that rice, the meat provided only half the calories she needed.
