Turkey & Veggie Dog Food
- 2 pounds lean ground turkey
- 2 tablespoons raw turkey or chicken liver, finely diced or pureed
- 2 medium carrots, coarsely chopped
- 1 cup broccoli florets
- 1 cup cauliflower florets
- 1/2 zucchini, sliced
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Add 1 1/2 cups water to a double boiler, place carrots in a steam basket over the pot and cover.
- Heat until boiling, reduce heat to a low boil and steam until carrots start to get tender, about 10 minutes. In the meantime, add the turkey and liver to a large skillet and cook on medium-high heat until done and there’s no more pink color.
- Drain off any fat and discard. (via SkinnyMS)
Frozen Peanut Butter & Yogurt Treats
- Greek yogurt
- natural peanut butter
- heart shaped ice tray (really any ice tray will do)
- Spoon a small amount of peanut butter into the base of the ice tray. You can heat up the peanut butter first to make it easier (and not so messy) to spoon in. The more you add, the thicker the top layer on the treats will appear. You can play around with different amounts to get varying final results.
- Next up, dollop heaping spoonfuls of the yogurt to cover the peanut butter in each mold.
- Press yogurt down into the molds using the back of your spoon to make sure they’re packed. This will help seal the peanut butter and yogurt together in the final treat. You can even gently “drop” the tray a few times in order to encourage further settling. If you have excess yogurt in any of the molds, gently scoop away until level with mold and pop into the freezer for at least 4 hours.
- Once frozen, remove tray and pop out individual frozen treats — voila! (via 17apart)
