To be fair, I still mix in dry dog kibble with whatever I cook for Jes (that's my bulldog, if you're new to my blog) but that's more for a bit of filler. I buy the Canidae brand, which in itself is a natural, holistic dog food. I feed her the Platinum formula, which is a nice name for the old and overweight dog food.
But I don't feed it to her because she's old or overweight but rather because it's lower in fat and carbs.
Most nights Jes is served a baked chicken breast (no skin of course) and a cup of green beans. Green beans are her favorite. When I substitute another veg, I often find them in the bottom of the bowl. It amazes me how a dog with a squished face can each around morsels of carrots.

And on special occasions, she gets doggy ice cream for dessert. You can either buy it in the store, or make it yourself.
It's that simple to create a healthy home cooked meal for dogs.
- 2 cups vanilla yogurt
- Bananas (mashed)
- 2 tablespoons honey
Mix the ingredients together, place equal amounts in an ice cube tray and place the tray in the freezer."
