Many smaller breeds, such as chihuahuas, Yorkshire terriers and Pomeranians, can become overweight and lethargic when fed commercial dog foods. These kibbles can be filled with byproducts and man-made materials unhealthy for an active, vital, smaller dog. A more healthful alternative is homemade dog food for both breakfast and dinner filled with natural ingredients that will help any smaller breed lead a more joyful, dynamic life.
- Place a medium-sized frying pan on medium heat.
- Cook two pieces of turkey bacon on one side for three minutes. Flip the bacon and cook it for three additional minutes.
- Place the cooked bacon onto plate covered with two sheets of paper towel to absorb any grease.
- Beat one egg in a small bowl for 15 seconds with a whisk.
- Place a small, non-stick pan on medium heat.
- Pour the egg into the pan and slowly push the egg toward the center of the pan with a spatula until it is fully cooked, which should take two to four minutes.
- Place 1/3 cup alfalfa sprouts onto one side of the omelet. Fold the omelet over so the side with the alfalfa sprouts is covered.
- Place the omelet and turkey bacon onto a plate and allow them to cool completely. Cut the omelet into bite-sized pieces before serving it to the small-breed dog.
Lunch or Dinner
- Brown 1/2 pound ground beef in a medium-sized pan for eight to 10 minutes. Stir and turn the meat occasionally to ensure it does not burn. Drain the meat.
- Place 1/4 cup instant rice and 1/4 cup water in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave the mixture for three to five minutes or until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed.
- Cut one small potato and six green beans into small, bite-sized pieces. Pour three cups of water into a medium-sized pot. Pour the cut vegetables into the pot and bring the mixture to a boil on high heat. Place the pot on low heat for 15 to 20 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.
- Drain the vegetables in a colander and pour them, the cooked rice, 1/4 tsp. garlic powder and the browned meat into a large bowl. Stir.
- Allow the ingredients to cool completely before serving one cup of the dog food to the small-breed dog. Refrigerate the remaining food in an air-tight container.
