We recently switched our 4-year old dog over from store-bought dog food to homemade dog food and Charlie could not be happier.
This is a great, well-rounded beginner recipe that is easy to make and can easily be scaled up and stored in the freezer. I really enjoy making fresh food for Charlie and hope to share more recipes soon!

HOMEMADE DOG FOOD RECIPE:
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 pound ground turkey
1 large zucchini shredded
1 cup baby spinach finely chopped
1 cup shredded carrots
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
3 cups cooked rice (I like using frozen brown rice)
Heat a large skillet or pot over medium-high heat. Add in the coconut oil and turkey and sauté until it is browned and cooked through, about 10 minutes.
Reduce the heat to medium and stir in the zucchini, spinach, carrots, and turmeric. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5-7 minutes, until the vegetables are tender.
Turn off the heat and crack in the egg. Let the egg cook in the hot food, mix it around to ensure it is mixed through and cooked through.
Stir in the rice until everything is well combined. Cool and serve!
*Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
