To make EatsWritesShoots.com's recipe for low-phosphorus dog food, cook 2 cups of rice or pearl barley, then stir in 1/2 cup fresh chopped parsley. Peel and cut 2 pounds of acorn squash, and boil for 20 to 25 minutes. Steam 1 pound green beans, and brown 2 pounds lean ground beef in a frying pan. Do not drain the fat. Once these ingredients have cooled, place the beans, squash and 2/3 of the beef in a food processor and puree. Mix the puree with the rice and the remainder of the beef. Scramble 1 pint liquid egg whites in a pan with 2 to 4 tablespoons of coconut oil. Add the eggs to the food mixture. This recipe makes 10 to 12 days of food for a 25-pound dog. Store the food in individual bags in the freezer.

To make egg and sweet potato, mix 3 cups boiled sweet potatoes with 2 large boiled eggs. Blend with 1 1/2 cups of pureed or shredded vegetables, such as carrots, broccoli, cucumber or tomato. Add 1 tablespoon of 3-6-9 omega oil blend and Dog Greens supplement. This makes one day of food for a 40-pound dog.
