Bring back the FRESH foods

While there are some great kibble diets on the market, we should still get some fresh food in our diet. Kibble is cooked at very high temps and a lot of the nutritional value that raw veggies and fresh meat contain, is cooked out.
So what can you add? Cooked chicken breast, lean turkey, whitefish, salmon, lean beef, or lamb. As for fruits & veggies, green or red peppers, unsalted green beans or sweet peas, carrots, broccoli, baby spinach, cauliflower, bananas, apples, blueberries, etc. Just be careful not to feed onions, macadamia nuts, raisins, or grapes = toxic.
I also add all natural garlic granuals to meals. Garlic is a controversial herb that many people think is toxic to pets. BUT many holistic vets say it is not. It supports a healthy immune system and is a natural flea deterrent. Add some fresh to your pet's food, they will thanks you :)
