Isn't It Peachy?
DIY dog food perfect for late summer

Quick and healthy, this recipe capitalizes on late summer bounty. Fresh peas and the addition of peaches give the sweetness dogs enjoy, and non-gluten products are used to help with allergies. Prep Time: 10 minutes; makes seven 1-cup servings.

Shopping list and instructions:

3 lb ground lamb or in chunks
3 eggs
1/2 cup fresh peas, shelled
1 cup brown rice
1 cup canned peach slices in natural juice

1. Saute the meat in a lightly sprayed pan over medium heat for about 15 minutes until no longer pink and the meat juices run clear. Let cool.

2. Meanwhile, cook the rice according to package instructions.

3. Cook the eggs in a saute pan over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring gently until the eggs are firm.

4. Mix the lamb with the scrambled eggs and let cool.

5. Mix together the peas, rice and peaches, then stir in the meat and egg mixture. Allow to cool before serving to your hungry pup. See portion sizes and nutritional information here.
