NO NEED TO KILL IT! IT’S ALREADY DEAD!

Just a reminder that I prefer you to either feed raw, uncooked meat or lightly cooked meat = 8/10 minutes of cooking.

There is no need to freeze meet if you lightly cook as the heat will deal with any parasitic burden.

Raw meat it’s a good idea to freeze first if it’s not been purchased from a DEFRA licenced raw dog food company.

Cooking through, does have a place in certain circumstances. But my preference is Uncooked or lightly cooked.

It’s well documented that I lightly cook my pets food:

A. They prefer it,

B. It’s the closest to nature as I serve it at around 38 degrees, blood temperature of a ‘kill’.

C. Freezing does loose some vitamin content is estimated around 8/11% especially vitamin C. Interestingly vitamin C isn’t a requirement of FEDIAF! When I formulate raw pet foods, I always make certain that we cover the vitamin C loss after freezing and in some cases refreezing! (That’s what balancing to FEDIAF & beyond means).

D. No need to worry about parasites as the heat deals with this.

I never use ‘high’ or ‘fast’ heat when cooking meat for dogs or cats! I’ve written quite a bit about this. Basically it makes the meat tough.

Duck Gizzards

The Queeniechi gang enjoyed their free range, duck gizzards today!

They were smacking their lips for ages! I warmed them for a few mins and fed them with the rest of their food.

Warmed them a little but uncooked. Yummy in their tummies!

DISCLAIMER:

My dogs ate a totally unbalanced to FEDIAF/AFFCO meal today. I don’t ever recommend doing this as it could result in your dog wanting more and more delicious fresh food and refusing to eat:
DEAD INORGANIC – HIGHLY PROCESSED – MOISTURE DEPLETED – LONG SHELF LIFE – BORING AS FUCK FOOD!

You’re very welcome.

Dog Food Revolution

These pictures are from maybe 2012, can’t remember exactly!

I was all about “The Dog Food Revolution” at the time ✊🏽 But happily since moved on! PHEW!!! What a numpty phase that was 😂

I’m not really a fighting warrior type, more a softie pacifist, who is more about creating change through inspiring the ‘new’ not trying to ‘force’ the old behaviours!

The ‘Posh 🐟 ‘ is a range of cat food that I created all that time ago! It never saw the light of day!!!!! THANK DOG! It has peas in it!!!! #FFS 🙈 I was trying to emulate fresh versions of popular cat food at the time, they were fresh garden peas!!!! And my Bengals love some veggies (don’t hate me).

I was trying to be someone that I’m not! Trying to be what I thought people/my little audience wanted! Nearly as bad as the whole ‘clean eating’ movement! Oy bloody Vey! 👍🏻🙄

I’ve become me! And I loose followers daily because, I either offend them with my ‘foul language’ or I’ve offended a dietary choice that they have made & made them feel uncomfortable. (Sorry not sorry)

I’m pretty much unfiltered as a human being when it comes to my passions in life! You can see my journey all over my Social Media’s, all of the crap ideas, poorly executed videos, crap lighting, dodgy scripting, weird recipes! And much much more! But it’s all there for you to see in the hopes that it might encourage you to give this a go! Tell your story, change one persons mind to #FEEDFRESH 💖

You won’t see endless photos of my dogs, children & my daily personal life because that’s ‘my’ life! I’m a very private person & really quite insular at times (yup) but I won’t be a fake ass clown! There to just to tell you the fun stuff! It doesn’t help anyone pretending that my life is AMAZING 24/7 that’s bullshit!

Go and be an influencer! Post your experiences & love yourself just a little bit more today!

You CAN do this!

With Love

P.S. don’t forget to check your boobs (men too) & balls 🎱 if you have them!

FROM KIBBLE TO FRESH🐕🐕🐕

HOW I TRANSITIONED 5 DOGS FROM KIBBLE TO A FRESH RAW WHOLE LIVING FOODS DIET🐕🐕🐕

As this #TRYFresh Campaign comes to a 

close, its time to show you how we transitioned each dog for the month of January campaign. #TRYJanuary.

HOW WE DID IT:

Each transition plan was tailored to each dog, with guidance from myself to ensure success & that everything ran smoothly.

I will be sharing all 5 “FRESHERS” journeys, from how we transitioned each dog to how they are doing now & will be following up throughout the year!

The next #TRYFresh campaign will start in April 🙌🏻 #TRYApril🐾🐾

Poppy’s Picnic provided the food for this campaign.

CASE STUDY 2:

Lisa Gardener with TANGO

Here is Tango’s transition plan:

Chop and steam:

1/2 White cabbage 

1/4 Red cabbage 

2 x Courgette 

1/2 x Yellow pepper

1/2 Apple (minus pips)

Add x 1 tbs walnut oil to the mixture.

Take out 1 tbs of kibble out add 1 x tbs of the veggie mixture. Build this up to x 3 tbs over 3 days.

SWITCH TO THIS MIXTURE

Now gently cook 150g of minced turkey & add to the next batch of veggie mix. Take out 2 tsb of kibble add 2 x tsb of the veggie/turkey mix & build up to 5 x spoons over 3 days.

Add 1.5 x capsule of Kiki Soil Based Organisms (probiotic) per day. https://kiki-health.com/product/body-biotics-30-caps/

Then we went straight onto raw, as we had protected the gut with a fantastic non diary probiotic, which will ensure the internal environment is receptive to a fresh raw diet & the cooked fresh foods beforehand would have fired up your dogs digestive system, to enable them to cope with moving onto processing a raw fresh diet with ease. The gastrointestinal system aka The Gut is is truly where robust & powerful health stems form.

NOTE: If you are transitioning using a complete & balanced pre made raw food & adding this to your kibble then the ratio is:

2 spoons 🥄 🥄 out (kibble) 1 🥄 in (raw fresh) reason being that the complete & balanced raw food is nutritionally superior compared to just adding mince or a spoonful of veggies.

I will be updating ‘what they are feeding now’ next week! Watch out for all 5 case studies!

Thank you ❤️❤️

With love
