Adapted from Cooking for Your Dog
So your health regimen is all set (green smoothies, plant proteins, etc.) but what about the health of your favourite canine companion?
If your pup now ignores your cheerful requests for a “high-five” – you might consider this as retaliation for his usual stick of suspiciously pink mystery meat you call a “treat”. Just like for humans, veggies can be a tasty and wonderful source of disease-preventing nutrients for your pooch. And besides, if you get hungry at the dog park there’s no reason you can’t munch on one of these doggy treats too!
Tip: if Fido doesn’t make it a habit to chow down on the green stuff, you might need to add the chicken stock (below) to entice him to make the switch. Otherwise, you’ll likely be able to do without!
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Throw carrots, parsley and spinach into a food processor and pulse until finely chopped.
3. Add coconut oil and pulse again until almost a puree consistency.
4. Transfer mixture to a large mixing bowl and add the eggs. Stir to evenly combine the eggs and follow with spelt flour.
5. Once spelt flour is evenly folded in (you might need to get your hands in there and knead it!), assess the consistency of your dough. Add more flour if it’s too watery or milk/ rice milk if too thick. (It should resemble a scone or biscuit – dough.)
6. Sprinkle some flour on the counter and evenly roll the dough out into a thin layer.
7. Use some cute dog-themed cookie cutters and cut out all your biscuits. Arrange them on your greased cookie sheet and sprinkle with corn grits.
8. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until cookies are nice and crispy. Let cool and then serve to your favourite pup!
