Yesterday, after routine food shopping with my 87 year old mother, when I returned home, I was putting the dogs weekly pup meals together, which I always enjoy doing (and yes, my husband thinks our dogs eat better than us!).
I always make sure they get a mix of bone meat, muscle meat and offal – as the basic mix. This information I learnt earlier this year when I attended the hunde.au holistic nutritional canine session, which gave me the confidence to put interesting meals together for my dogs.
I hadn’t bought chicken necks in a little while for the dogs and decided to mince Dobby’s portion in the thermomix. (Dobby – now 15 years old, is unable to tolerate bones – not even soft chicken necks), mincing them left me with lots of residue chicken/bone mince in the bowl, that I didn’t want to waste and couldn’t be bothered scraping it down – Thats when my creativity kicked in I added:
1 Tbsp Turmeric
2 whole eggs (shells included)
300 ml water
2 Tbsp gently melted organic coconut oil
Method: In to the thermomix bowl, blitzed for one minute and this became a thick rich golden egg slurry which I later poured over the dogs meats and froze for the week.
then I blitzed it for one minute on speed ten.
The egg shell is jam packed full of greatness and goodness. Extremely high in calcium and protein. Almost a complete food source.
Not to mention the added nutrition of the turmeric for brain and joint health and organic coconut oil for all the health benefits including its anti-fungal, antibiotic and anti viral properties, jut to name a few.
The high speed of the thermomix was able to blitz the shells to a powder in a minute (or probably less), I think this could be achieved in a food processor with a strong motor.
As mentioned earlier, this was then poured on top of the canine meat purchased for the week, which also included: pork kidneys, ox tongue and green lip mussels and some beef mince. Stored in jars and frozen for convenience for their dog obsessed Mumma!
Let me know what you think!
