Let food be thy medicine and Medicine be thy food.  Hippocrates

      2/6/17  There was a time when I thought feed­ing my dogs a vari­ety of foods sim­ply meant rotat­ing pro­teins like beef, chick­en, turkey, and fish. To ensure a good bal­ance of nutri­ents my dog feed­ing habits have adapt­ed to include a  mix of high pro­tein grains like Quinoa, legumes such as lentils, pureed veg­eta­bles, and organ meat such as kid­ney and liv­er.

The doctor of the future will give no medicines, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the causes and prevention of disease.     Thomas Edison

Adding a vibran­cy to the col­or palette of the meal high­lights the heal­ing prop­er­ties of food for both pets and their peo­ple. In the book What Are You Hun­gry For? Dr. Deep­ak Chopra encour­ages us to bal­ance our meals with  rain­bow col­ored fruits and veg­eta­bles. Be sure to check out Dee Blan­co, DVM, Holis­tic Vet­eri­nary Care and Edu­ca­tion  web­site to learn more about col­or guide­lines for healthy pets:  Green veg­gies for detox­i­fy­ing, Red fruits and veg­eta­bles for heart and blood health, Yel­low for skin health, and White for immune health.
