Ingredients Measures

Poor food quality is one of the banes of dog food allergies. So make sure you buy clean, wholesome foods from reputable purveyors. Buy government-inspected food products. We recommended good quality food stuff here on Amazon. But feel free to get yours from any other suppliers.

All ingredients’ measurements are done in gram with good, sensitive and accurate kitchen scale that measures up to hundreds of gram and very sensitive gravity scale that measures down to 0.01 gram!

  1. Raw Quinoa: 672 gram
  2. Organic Chicken: 124 gram
  3. Raw Ripe Organic Avocados: 1 gram. Measure only the edible portion (flesh) of the avocado. Do not let your dog eat/swallow the pit (hard seed). See more on avocados for dogs. If raw avocado is not available, use 1.5 tablespoons avocado oil instead.
  4. Broccoli (Chopped): 2 cup(s)
  5. Parsley: 3 gram
  6. Celery (Coarsely Chopped): 30 gram
  7. Bay Leaf: 4 gram
  8. Peppercorn: 2 teaspoon(s)
  9. Whole Clove: 4 gram
  10. Eggshell Powdwer: 1.5 teaspoon(s). See how to make eggshell powder.
  11. Kelp: 1.08 gram. Empty the capsule of kelp on your gravity scale and measure.
  12. Spirulina: 0.6 gram (Please Buy Earthrise Brand only). To be sure of giving your dog recommended amount of spirulina, please used very sensitive gravity scale that measures down to 0.01 gram!
    Alternate the use of spirulina for your dog: 1-WEEK ON, 1-WEEK OFF
  13. Vinegar: 3 teaspoon(s)
  14. Pumpkin Seed Powder: 3 tablespoon(s). To be sure you’re using pure pumpkin seed powder, I recommend you get Terrasoul Superfoods Organic Pumpkin Seeds and grind it with an effective coffee grinder.

Cooking Method

Our method of cooking is Moist-Heat method. Moist-heat methods are those in which the heat is conducted to the food product by water or water-based liquids such as broth, stock and sauces, or by steam. The method includes Boiling – 212°F (100°C), Simmering – 185°F to 205°F (85°C to 96°C) and Poach – 160°F to 180°F (71°C–82°C).

Procedure

1. Place the chicken in a stockpot.

2. Pour boiling water till the chicken is covered and heat at (212°F) 100°C to return to a boil.

3. Allow to cool for like 3 to 5 minutes then skim the fat scum.

4. Add the kelp, celery, broccoli, bay leaf, parsley, peppercorn and whole cloves.

5. Simmer at 185°F (85°C) for about 2 hours 30 minutes until the chicken feel tender when pressed on the thigh.

6. Remove the chicken from the liquid, place in another container and cover till needed.

7. Strain the broth. Keep the broth and the filtered separately in appropriate containers and cover them.

Make sure these items are not kept unrefrigerated for up to 1 hour at a stretch.If you are not using the chicken, the filtered and the broth immediately, please cool them on ice-water bath and refrigerate below 41°F (5°C).

8. Place quinoa in a fine mesh strainer and holding under cold running water till it is thoroughly rinsed (that is when the water runs clear), drain well.

9. Pour the chicken broth into a saucepan, add the rinsed quinoa and the avocados and heat at 212°F (100°C) till boiling.

10. Add the apple cider vinegar, pumpkin powder and spirulina and stir once or twice.

11. Reduce heat to low 185°F (85°C). Cover the pan and simmer for 12 to 15 minutes (or until water is absorbed and quinoa is tender).

12. Test for doneness. Cook a few additional minutes if necessary.

13. Remove saucepan from heat and let it stands 5 minutes. Fluff quinoa with fork.

14. Shred the chicken to remove all the bones. Then cut the chicken to size.

Bone piece is very dangerous when dog swallowed it. Your pooch may not be able to digest it and this can cause puncture of the intestine.

15. Sprinkle the eggshell powder to make up for removed bones. Then mix all together.

16. Add the chicken and the filtered from the broth to the quinoa and mix.

Then allow to cool for another 5 minutes to normal warm temperature.

And the meal is ready!!!
