|Hi Frankie's mom,
I'm actually doing homecooked with my pups now. Grace is so picky it is my only choice.
I'd recommend getting a good multivitamin until you learn more about home cooking and raw. Just to be sure you have your basics covered.
Right now, Grace's favorite meal is baked Tilapia, steamed baby carrots, pasta (I get one with fiber and protein) with a sprinkle of cheese or cottage cheese mixed in.
Definitely read up on the home cook forum...and maybe look at some recipe books
Basically you want a meat, a veg, and a grain (this is optional - could be potatoes instead). Make sure to fine chop or puree the veg so they can digest it.
Grace also loves things like the baby food pouches, freeze dried fruits, and yogurt drops. Those are easy for snacks or when I have her out.
She likes yogurt, eggs, my gluten free banana muffins (for me LOL But sugar free so I give them some too), and any veg that I'm eating, I will give her and Gus bites of (barring unsafe ones for pups of course). Some of their favorite veggies: Carrots, zucchini, broccoli, green beans, peas, sweet potato, white potato, butternut squash.
I was kind of upset when I first had to home cook for her but now find it fun. So wishing you both luck Branch out... find other things besides the string cheese LOL...
Try some chicken, baby carrots, and potato or rice... or even a pasta (Grace really likes pasta). Drizzle it with some of the chicken broth... mmmm
Best of luck!
