To make holistic dog food, incorporate nutritious whole food ingredients and omit filler products with no nutritional value. One good healthy recipe is turkey and vegetable dinner, while a healthy dessert is fruit parfait for dogs.
To make turkey and vegetable dinner for dogs, cook 1 pound of ground turkey in a non-stick skillet over medium heat until it is cooked through. Add the cooked turkey, 2 cups of brown rice and 4 cups of water to a large pot and bring the ingredients to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 15 minutes, or until the rice is soft and tender. Add 1 cup of chopped carrots and 1 cup of chopped green beans. Cook for another five to 10 minutes or until the vegetables are soft. Allow the dish to cool before serving. Extra servings can be stored for up to five days in the refrigerator.
To make fruit parfait for dogs, blend 1/2 cup of plain non-fat yogurt, 1/2 cup of diced strawberries, 1/2 cup of blueberries and 1/2 cup of applesauce. Alternatively, the berries can be pureed separately and layered with the other ingredients for a more parfait-like result. Serve this dish in small helpings and store leftovers in the fridge for up to seven days.
