SIMPLE AND HEALTHY CROCKPOT MEAL FOR DOGS
During the holiday season, it may be tempting to feed your dog table scraps. Instead, keep them healthy with this easy, quick, and healthy crockpot meal for dogs. Make it ahead of time and freeze until time to serve.
I recently began feeding my dogs fresh, homemade dog food and I still can’t believe the difference in their energy level and overall health! It has made such a huge difference. You’ll be surprised too. This crockpot meal for dogs is so easy and inexpensive to make. Throw it together, put it in the crockpot and forget it. Put it in individual Ziplock bags and freeze until ready to serve. That’s it!
This is a truly healthy and easy recipe to make and it can be modified in many ways. Use pork tenderloin, carrots, peas, kidney beans, etc. You can swap oils too. Use olive oil or safflower oil. You get the idea.
2 1/2 to 3 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs and breasts
1 sweet potato, cubed
1 C frozen broccoli
2 C frozen green beans
2 C frozen spinach
1 large apple, cored and cubed (no seeds)
1 C dried pinto beans
2 TB coconut oil
- Place meat in the crockpot and add water so that it just covers the chicken. Then, add potato, apple and pinto beans
- Cook on low for 8-9 hours, when it is about finished, add the frozen green beans, spinach, and cook for another 30 minutes.
- When finished, drain off excess liquid, add coconut oil, and mash (or place in a food processor).
Dish out individual sized portions and freeze. Take one out each morning to thaw.
