Home made beans & rice food for your Pooch , Free Dog food Recipes

Yep, Canine Recipe  Beans, and Rice Recipe - Balanced meal 



( Cooking for your dog FREE Recipes )




 Yes, they can have beans as a form of protein 

 It takes longer but it's real food that you can make a big batch of, and refrigerate or freeze in portions.


Beans and Rice for your Pooch 
  • 2 lb bag pinto beans
  • 2 lb bag brown rice- MUST be brown rice only 
  • 1 lb bag of green beans 
  • l lb bag fresh carrots
  • 2 cups fresh green vegetables ( any veggie is fine except NO onions ) 
Cook beans and rice per package instructions ~~(pre soaking beans several hours and changing water prevents flatulence in dogs).  Cut vegetables in small pieces or put through food processor. Mix it all together.
It's worth having a food processor or the Nutri Ninja blender to get the veggies in very small pieces 
Makes approximately 22 cups of food (10 servings for a med/large dog)
- 21 grams protein per two cup serving

Need more than 21 Grams of protein?  ( pups or younger dogs may want 27 grams or higher in protein, See egg tip: 
- For more protein, you can add 1 large egg per cup of food - YOU CAN cook up some HARD boiled eggs and have one ready for each meal ( ONLY if you wanted to add more protein ) 
ABOUT the BEANS   *If you are surprised to see beans and legumes on any of my lists,  I understand. They are high in protein and if cooked correctly, will not cause gas. They are the most time-consuming ingredient in making your own dog food.  ( if you don't have time Skip this Recipe ) - MORE info on cooking beans at the BOTTOM of this post ... 
I had big doubts about beans so they were the last thing I tried. I cooked pinto beans after soaking for 12 hours. Amazingly, my dogs loved them. This entire step by step process has amazed me many times... 
If you will be feeding this meal daily, I suggest you add some bone meal to the recipe -  Bone meal will give your dog the calcium they need; 
I enjoy the NOW Brand of Bone Meal, You can find this in the HUMAN Vitamin section of your Health food store or on Amazon.com See here 
Yes Calcium builds strong Bones but it also does the following  
  • Required for proper contraction of heart muscles and regulating the heartbeat
  • assists muscle development and prevents muscle cramps
  • plays a role in the absorption of fats and proteins
  • protects against blood clotting
  • protects against colon cancer
  • helps in the transmission of nerve impulses
  • contributes to enzyme function
  • inhibits the absorption of lead into bones and teeth
  • regulates the passage of nutrients through the cell wall
  • used in balancing the pH level in the body
  • so, DON'T SKIP THE CALCIUM FOR YOUR PETS .... HOME COOKING YOU MUST DO BONE MEAL OR ANOTHER TYPE OF CALCIUM  



LAST  --  IF YOU ARE GOING TO HOME COOK YOU MUST ADD A QUALITY VITAMIN FOR YOUR DOG DAILY

WHY do we soak beans ??? 

Soaking allows the beans to release indigestible sugars that make for some gaseous situations.  IF you know what I mean.  

Soaking also makes the beans more digestible. It cleans them more thoroughly (since beans cannot be washed before being sold or they can turn moldy). Finally, soaking beans helps them to cook up in about half the time.

So after the beans have soaked for a while, the soaking water now contains these elements that you are trying to eliminate by soaking the beans in the first place. 
Please Change the water before you cook the beans
And this is why the bean water is discarded. So it is best to drain the water and rinse the beans thoroughly before cooking.
