  • 2 pounds Ground beef
  • 2 pounds Ground turkey
  • 14 ounces Tuna 2 cans, in water
  • 1/2 pound Chicken gizzards
  • 1/2 cup Cottage cheese
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 cup White rice cooked
  • 6 ounces Sweet potato
  • 6 ounces Green peas cooked
  • 6 ounces Cauliflower
  • 6 ounces Broccoli
  • 1/2 Apple medium size
  • 3 tablespoons Coconut oil


  • Cook rice per label instructions. In a second pot boil the chicken gizzards until cooked thoroughly - about 10 minutes. Add eggs to this pot for the last 5 minutes to hard boil.
  • In a third very large pot cook the ground beef and ground turkey until browned. Drain off most of the fat and remove from the heat.
  • Use a food processor to grind the raw peas, raw broccoli, raw cauliflower, 1/2 apple (cored and seeded), cooled gizzards, and peeled eggs. This may take two batches.
  • Microwave sweet potato for 3-4 minutes until soft.
  • Add all ingredients, including the canned salmon or tuina, to the large pot with the beef and turkey. Add cottage cheese and coconut oil at the end. Mix well with a wooden spoon to incorporate.
  • This will make two weeks food for two nine pounds dogs. Place in freezer bags, label, and date.


When you switch to homemade nutritious food you should incorporate the homemade food gradually with their regular food, as you would with any food change. This will avoid any digestive problems.
