Back in the days of children, I cooked dinner. Now that it is just Skipper and I, we eat mostly quick meals. This is a huge disappointment to Bentley. He always knew when I cooked meat, sometimes a piece was dropped for him. Imagine his surprise when I went to the stove to brown some turkey the other day.
Bentley: “Hey Mom, what cha cooking?”
Me: “I’m browning some turkey. Do you need to sit under my feet? I could trip over you.”
Bentley: “Yeah, that’d be a real shame if you were to spill that freshly browned turkey on the floor. *snicker Hey, Pierre! Come here, I need your help.”
Pierre: “What do you need? It is almost Squirrel: thirty and I have to be at my station to patrol. *sniff-sniff Dude, is Gramma cooking? Are we going to try to get her to spill the meat?”
Me: “I can hear y’all. It just so happens that I am browning this for your dinner. I’m making Dr. Harvey’s Veg-to-Bowl. It is easy to prepare and you are not going to believe how good it is for you boys.”
Bentley: “We were just joking about tripping you. You’re the best mom ever. Is it ready yet?”
*Bentley and Pierre stayed out of my way, but shamelessly whined once they know it is THEIR food I was preparing.
Pierre: “What are you doing with that bag? Do I see veggies?
Is that part of our dinner?"
Me: This is the Dr. Harvey’s Veg-to-Bowl and it is so easy that you could probably make it yourselves. Don’t try, I’m just saying…Anyway, it is free from all preservatives and additives, there’s no salt or sugar and it doesn’t have any fillers, corn, wheat, or soy. It does contain organic herbs and is perfect for a raw diet. To answer your question, yes there are nine veggies in this bag. You are going to have sweet potatoes, carrots, potatoes, broccoli, peas, green beans, zucchini and beets.”
Bentley: “You are cooking our turkey, right. I know that I could eat raw meat, but I’m not quite ready. Speaking of ready, how are we looking on dinner?”
Me: It’ll be just a minute. Let me drain this turkey grease and while the meat is cooling, you can watch me mix the Veg-to-Bowl. I used the scoop that came inside the bag and followed the measurements for your sizes. Then, I added hot water, stirred and we have to let it sit for 8 – 10 minutes.”
Pierre: “It smells so good. Can a dog starve in 8 – 10 minutes?”
Me: “No, but you could drown in that drool. There’s the timer! Let me add the turkey and some oil and stir it really good. This looks delicious. Are y’all hungry?”
Bentley & Pierre: “Go ahead and finish the review while we…nom, nom, nom"
Me: “The boys LOVED the Dr. Harvey’s Veg-to-Bowl and I feel good feeding it to them. It helps control their weight because I know exactly what they are eating. It’s made with 100% human grade vegetables and since I add the protein, I control how much they consume. Dr. Harvey recommends rotating proteins. Different meats/proteins have different amino acid concentrations. This matters because varying these levels help support optimal wellness in your dog. It is also important to switch up the oils that you use. We stirred in olive oil this time but plan to use flaxseed, sesame, and salmon. Different oils contain different fatty acids that our dogs need.
I have become a huge fan of Dr. Harvey’s products. They are also some of the nicest people to know. We had fun chatting with them a couple of weeks ago on the #BlogPawsChat. Dr. Harvey’s is a sponsor of this year’s conference! Bentley and Pierre are almost as excited to meet them as I am! You can see why by reading our other Dr. Harvey’s reviews: here or here or here or even here.
Bentley: “OMD! That meal was EPIC! I want to watch you make more.”
Me: “Just watch this quick video and keep on drooling!”
