Raw Boneless Chicken & Egg Dog Food Recipe Ingredients:
5 pounds lean ground chicken
2 pounds chicken heart
1 pound chicken liver
12 pastured eggs without shells
16 ounces (6 stalks) kale
8 ounces (2 stalks) broccoli
12 ounces (2 small clamshell packages) blueberries or mixed berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and cranberries)
5 Tablespoons bone meal or seaweed calcium
2 teaspoons wheat grass
1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt
If you have a grinder, grind the liver heart and liver. If you don’t have a grinder, chop the liver and heart into small cubes.
Puree the eggs, kale, broccoli, berries, bone meal, wheat grass and salt in a food processor.
Mix the ground chicken, liver, heart and veggie/berry mix together.
Place the mixture into smaller containers and place them in your freezer. It’s best to freeze your food in 1-3 day portions.
Improving The Fats
We recommend feeding Safe-Sea daily to help balance your dog’s fatty acids. Chicken is rich in inflammatory omega-6 fats and this will bring the omega-6/omega-3 ratio from 12:1 down to 3:1.
But don’t add any oil to the recipe directly. To reduce oxidation, you don’t want to expose the oil to oxygen for too long. Instead, give it daily with your dog’s meal.
The ingredients in this recipe have been carefully chosen to meet AAFCO minimum nutrition requirements for adult dogs. Don’t replace ingredients or vary the amounts too much … this may unbalance the food.
