A Little Pumpkin Makes Thanksgiving Merry
Pumpkin Is a Wonderful Food for Dogs
One branch of science thinks humans evolved large brains and multiplied quickly was a result of taming fire, cooking fires, which led to us being able to eat a huge variety of foods in all seasons. If dogs, which they certainly did, evolve with us, it stand to reason that they too, ate whatever we ate.
I don’t feed my dog #rawfood.
I’ve tried a variety of foods and continue to gradual rotate his diet. He no longer eats the kibble he ate at the animal shelter. We feed him chicken, venison, buffalo with organic yams or pumpkin, a few fresh sweet peas, carrot or apple pieces.
He’s super healthy, no more skin allergies (except to our lawn, he loves to roll in grass) and no more smelling gas.
Our dog, Sydney, eats #grainfree like us, on a well-cooked diet.
I have lived with digestive problems since birth. I tried fruit juice fasts and a diet of #rawfoods and became extremely ill. I wanted to eat the same diet my boyfriend lived on, raw salads and fruits. After becoming so ill, I could not eat anything and felt so exhausted I had to rest in bed all day (a lifestyle not suited to my love of hiking, dancing and digging in the garden).
A Chinese herbalist helped me get well, on herbal formulas and cooked foods. To this day, I avoid raw, cold and heavy sweets. Soups and roasted vegetables with a small amount of berries keeps me in good #health.
No, I don’t feed my dog raw food, how about you?
Sydney spits out raw pumpkin, he likes it cooked.
