Shouldn’t we put as much thought into our pet’s diets as we do our own? You don’t like processed food that’s pumped full of chemicals, so why would your dog?
You can combine carbohydrates, to give your pooch energy, and proteins, to help build its tissues through an array of recipes. You can also touch up on much needed amino and fatty acids, to improve your doggy’s hair and skin, these same fats assist with brain development and vision wellness. And with all this in mind, we’ve got a great recipe below for a yummy homemade chicken liver and veggie stew. So, why not try it? You’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain. Let’s get cookin’ and cheers to our favorite furry friends!
You Will Need:
- 2 lbs raw chicken livers (3 containers) – remember, you can also use beef liver
- 2 cup of cooked brown rice, set aside
- 1 cup of chopped carrots
- 1 chopped broccoli,
- 2 cup of water
- 1 teaspoon olive oil for pan
Chop the liver (chicken or beef), carrots and broccoli into bite sizes.
Brown the the liver in a hot skillet with the olive oil.
Add water to make a simmering “gravy.” You can add the leftover liquid, mainly the blood, from the containers. Don’t add salt or seasoning, dogs don’t need (or want) additives.
After adding the liquid, allow the liver simmer on medium heat until all traces of pink are gone. Once the liver is thoroughly cooked add in the carrots and broccoli and let them cook for a few minutes.
Cook them long enough so they become one with the liver stew – but hard enough so they retain as much raw goodness and nutrition as possible. Add water as needed. Allow to cool down and add in empty containers.
Make sure you save some freshly made, yet cooled down, stew for your pooch and serve it up!
