Mom is always on the hunt for tasty and nutritious treats and food items for me. I don’t find this annoying at all because, really, food is my favorite thing (as my aunt Payton would say, “duh!”), well, food and barking at squirrels.
It was quite the splendid morning when my mother received two samples in the mail from a company called The Honest Kitchen. The Honest Kitchen is a company that specializes in dehydrated dog and cat food made from human-grade (meaning the ingredients are safe for human consumption and are processed in a human-food producing facility. Not all dog foods require their products to be of human-grade) food stuffs. Their products contain no by-products, chemical preservatives, no artificial colors of flavors, no added salt or sugar, and absolutely no beet pulp, rice, wheat, corn or soy as these are the most common allergens in dogs. I know I get an attack of the belly upsets and itchy skin if I eat any wheat, so that makes me very happy.
The two samples I received were two of their six dog food choices: Force and Thrive. For this tasting my mom made up some of the Thrive. It has dehydrated chicken, organic quinoa (a grain), sweet potato, spinach, parsley, kelp, and rosemary. The only step needed to prepare the food is to add some warm water and let it set for about 10 minutes.
The three stages of preparation: Dry, Soupy, and Looks-Like-Mom's-Oatmeal
It smelled so delicious I wanted to have a taste right away, but I had to wait until it set for a bit.
Just a little nibble!
Finally I was able to dig in, and it was so worth the wait! You could see all of the ingredients like the sweet potato and spinach. I really did enjoy myself.
Good to the last smudge!
