Katie Cudlin’s Dog Food :
A bit about the following recipe...Katie is a friend of mine with two very gorgeous and healthy German Shepherds. Katie follows the idea that your dog's diet should be composed of about 30% fresh and raw (i.e., unprocessed) foods because processed food has had the enzymes and micro-nutrients cooked out. Katie cooks this up about once a month.
- 8 cups oats
- 2 cups brown rice
- 6 Cups barley
- 2 lbs. carrots finely grated
- 3-4 bunches broccoli - grate stems, chop flowerets
- 6 zucchini grated or 1 lb. green beans chopped
- 1/2 bunch parsley, chopped
- 4-5 cloves garlic, minced
Use 8 quart stock pots. Cook oats. In another pot, cook brown rice and barley. Cool (to save time, cook in evening and cool overnight). Next day: Cut vegetables - use food processor. Using rubber gloves, combine all ingredients in a 25 quart stock pot. Shape into balls about 1/4 lb. each. Wrap and freeze.
This recipe can be easily scaled down for smaller batches.
