Homemade Meals: Our Five Dogs’ Little Chefs

Preparing fresh, nutritionally-complete homemade meals is so simple, even my toddlers can do it! And it all starts with using Dr. Harvey’s base mixes and their convenient feeding guidelines.


In the pictures below, we are using Dr. Harvey’s Raw Vibrance as the base mix, and the protein source is Nellie’s Free Range Eggs. Other proteins we often use are pasture-raised chicken thighs and livers, and pasture-raised, grass-fed ground chuck and sirloin. In fact, Raw Feeding Miami is a great source for expanding your pups’ protein options! We are also using organic, unrefined coconut oil in the pictures below, though organic olive oil and Dr. Harvey’s Health and Shine are two of my other favorite “go-to” oils.

Step 1: Using the scoop included in each Dr. Harvey’s bag and following the feeding guidelines (also included in each bag), add Dr. Harvey’s base mix to each pups’ bowl.


Step 2: Add hot water and mix.

Step 3: Add in your protein of choice and mix.


Step 4: Add in your oil of choice and mix.

Step 5: Serve to your hungry pups!

Step 6: Wash, wash, wash your hands!

And you’re done. It really is that easy!


After contacting Dr. Harvey’s to share the physical and mental health benefits that I witnessed after switching my dogs’ diets to Paradigm, Dr. Harvey’s has since given me free products from their lines of food, supplements, treats, and grooming essentials for my honest feedback.

Nellie’s Free Range Eggs and Our Five Dogs have also formed a collaboration and I have received free-eggs as part of this collaboration. I had been using Nellie’s eggs for my pups’ meals long before Nellie’s and I were in contact, and am thrilled with this opportunity.

All opinions expressed about Dr. Harvey’s and/or Nellie’s Free Range Eggs in this and any other article I post may not represent the thoughts or opinions of Dr. Harvey’s and/or Nellie’s Free Range Eggs. Dr. Harvey’s products are not intended to diagnose, treat or cure any disease.
