My Fur Babe recipes are for dogs only. Dogs are scavengers and a variety of foods can be safely fed to them to improve their diets. (Cats are carnivores and must eat primarily meats to remain healthy.)
I recommend that you clear my recipes with your vet before feeding them to your own Fur Babe, and that you always provide your pups with a varied diet. I make several different recipes for my Fur Babe every week, as well as supplementing his diet with a high quality dry dog food.
I have never made a recipe that North does not devour. I began feeding him homemade foodie meals at two months old. I will never share one with you that is not a hit in his book.
Beggin' Rice & Beans
16oz Dry Red Beans - GMO free if possible
2 c. Brown Rice - Cooked
Broccoli Stems - Cleaned & Sliced
1 Bag Frozen Green Peas
Soak the red beans in a sealed container - overnight - in enough water to cover them well with a couple of inches to spare.
The next day, transfer the beans and 4c. water to a large pot and heat them over medium heat on the stove. When the beans have boiled, reduce the heat to low and cook the beans, lightly covered, stirring occasionally, for an hour.
If needed, add water periodically to keep the beans underwater and not sticking to the bottom of the pan.
Cook the two cups of rice separately. I always use a rice cooker, because I find it so easy and convenient to use.
Add the cooked rice, broccoli stems, and frozen peas to the beans, and remove the beans from the heat. Stir well and let the mixture rest for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
A serving can be given to your dog while warm - Not Too Hot - the rest can be stored, covered, in the fridge, for a few days.
My Fur Babe is still a large breed pup and finishes this amount of food in about three days. He also gets a serving of dry dog food in the mornings as a supplement.
