|Here ya go Rufio!Long post....
1/3 c x 24 = 8cups
Say 8 cups = 2 quarts = ½ gallon = 24 1/3 cups daily meals. He is about 6 pounds. This recipe is inexpensive tor the little guys....
2 cups rice/barley/oatmeal uncooked (30%)
3-4 cups protein (1-2 pounds would be enough) (40%)
2 cups veggies (30%)
4c water/turkey broth/veggie broth to cook it all in, at least
Veggies: apple/celery/ cabbage chopped fine
Pumpkin/potatoes/yams are great!/squash/asparagus/carrots/a little fruit like apple. Veggies essential for fiber/nutrients.
Protein: 1.5 to 2# lean hamburger, and/or ground turkey/chicken;chopped turkey /chicken, cooked in water for the broth. The water will make a good broth. Add veggies, add rice/barley all at the same time. Add more water if needed.
Carbs: Brown rice best, for rice. White rice acceptable. Avoid soy, corn, wheat. Barley is great and rolled oats from your breakfast oatmeal are excellent. Vary any way you like.
1 oz beef liver (I buy and freeze in pieces)
1 canned oyster (for zinc)
2 TBL coconut oil or olive oil
1 tsp rosemary chopped fine
1 TBL turmeric
2 tsp powdered eggshell (calcium)*
*(save your eggshells, rinse out and dry. Place in 300 degree oven for ten minutes. Reduce to powder form in coffee grinder).
1/4c apple cider vinegar
1 TBL brewer’s yeast
1 TBL lecithin granules
1 tsp powdered kelp
A little black pepper, not more than ½ tsp I think
Up to a TBL parsley if you like
1 tsp ground or fresh ginger if you like
1 tsp dry mustard if you like
1 TBL cinnamon if you like
1 tsp alfalfa powder if you like
Cook for 30 minutes,. This should make a nice stew, fairly thick as the rice and barley absorb the water.
When grain is cooked, moderately puree with a stick blender. There will still be little chunks. Dogs’ digestive tracts are shorter than ours, so this is how they better get nutrients. Cool to room temperature.
Add 1200 IU Vitamin E.
Open capsules and squeeze on; mix well into food.
2 cloves raw garlic, chopped fine (apparently loses usefulness if cooked).
Add 5 capsules 1200 mg Omega 3/6 fish oil
Add 2 5000 iu Vitamin D capsules.
Spoon into 1/3 c muffin tins and freeze. Pop out and place in freezer bags. Freeze. One muffin per day, fed ½ twice a day every 12 hours at room temperature.
Satori also gets in each meal 1 TBL kefir OR cottage cheese OR yogurt.
Ultimately this is less expensive than commercial dog food, has natural nutrients, probiotics and is very yummy accoding to my little pomeranian.
I know it sounds like a lot and is very picky (sort of) but once figured out, cooking is really a breeze. The food has a space i the pantry
