Homemade Brown Rice Recipe for Dogs

Isabel recently shared with us a couple of easy recipes she uses to feed her black lab, Nina, and graciously agreed to share it with all of our readers. See below for a nutritious and delicious Brown Rice recipe and click here for Oatmeal recipe.

1 cup cooked brown rice (10g protein)

1/2 baked sweet potato or yam or potato (1g protein)
1/4 tomato or zucchini
1/4 cup pea and carrot and cauliflower puree (just put a bag frozen veggies in blender) (2g protein)

3 tbsp sprouted brown rice or pea protein powder (12g protein)  
2 tbsp peanut butter (8g protein)

1.5 tbsp olive oil

The amounts can be adjusted for different sized dogs. Nina is a young 65 lb lab, and the above proportions work well for her. Yours can be slightly different, depending on the size and activity level of your dog. You can also play around with vegetables and fruits to see what flavour your dog likes best.

To make this a nutritionally complete meal, you can supplement the brown rice recipe with VegeDog. You would would add 2 4/5 tsp (just under 1 tbsp) for a 65 lb dog. For correct amounts for dogs of other sizes, please see here
