So, people are telling me they want to feed a Raw, wHOLe food diet, but it’s time consuming, and they don’t know what to buy or how to prepare it. For the next several posts, I’m going to share some of the recipes I’ve created. Saddle up.
Organ meats are good for your dogs (see Liver La Vida Loca, parts 1 & 2). High nutritional content, but should only be fed occasionally because they’re so rich.
Here’s a little recipe I’ve developed over the last few months that is easy to prepare once you get over the grossness of dealing with organ meats.
- 1 container of organic, antibiotic-free chicken livers (frozen)
- 4 oz raw goats milk
- 4 oz organic chicken stock
- 4 oz filtered water
- 1 Tbsp raw honey
- 2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
Organic, not-pumped-up-with-growth-hormones chicken livers are smaller and better for your dog. When you get home from the market with your chicken livers, put wax paper on a cookie sheet, and lay the livers on it so they’re not touching each other. Freeze for at least a couple of hours. They’re less messy/slippery/gross when frozen.
Once frozen, put them in your food processor or blender, add all the other ingredients, and blend until smooth.
It makes a brownish-pink cold soup. I pour 6oz portions into plastic containers and refrigerate. They’ll keep for about a 5 days in the fridge.
Nutrient-rich meals for days! I either pour out 3oz servings for each dog for each meal, or I’ll pour a single ounce over something else, like say if I’m splitting a single chicken wing between them. Most of the time, though, it’s just the soup, and it’s a complete meal. Then once it’s all gone, we rotate to a different protein, like beef or fish.
