I will also be posting little nutritional tidbits with these recipes.
Recipe#1 Gourmet Scrambled Eggs
Herbs (ex; rosemary or dill) - optional
1. Lightly coat a pan with canola or grapeseed oil and cook until just done the number of eggs YOU will be eating along with maybe one for your furry kitchen sidekick. Feel free to experiment with rosemary, dill or some other culinary herb to add extra flavor to the eggs while they're cooking.
2. Slice the avocado into several pieces and place them on the scrambled eggs.
3. Add a large dollop of plain yogurt and enjoy!
(For Fido or Spot, feed an amount of eggs appropriate for the size of the animal....for example 1/4 egg for a Jack Russell vs. 1 egg for a Labrador Retriever. The amount of avocado should also be adjusted...small dogs approximately 1/8 of a small/medium-sized fruit and large dogs can receive 1/4.)
Avocados are a wonderful plant source of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids which help with skin/coat condition, hormonal regulation, heart health, natural anti-inflammatory action and many others.
Plain yogurt is great in small quantities for your furry friends because of the probiotics contained in it and its digestibility as a dairy product. Not all of the strains in "people" yogurt will be used by the cat/dog body but the acidophilus will be helpful in regulating intestinal health.
