Meals to Share with Your Dog

We all have days when we hardly have time to cook for ourselves, never mind our dogs. Here are a few "Sable Tested/Sable Approved" healthy meals and snacks that the both of you can share.

Oatmeal (the real kind, not instant), mixed with fresh fruit and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Mini Pita Pockets filled with hummus, sprouts, and veggies.

Pasta tossed with olive oil, minced garlic, and lightly steamed veggies (whole grain pasta is preferable to the "white" kind.)

Stirfried Veggies (no onions please!) and tofu served over brown rice.

Fruit smoothies (freeze some in ice cube trays to make individual "pupsicles" for the summer months.)

Natural Peanut Butter spread on whole grain toast.

Baked Sweet Potatoes make a lovely side dish for humans and dogs alike.

Popcorn (air popped) sprinkled with Nutritional Yeast is a fun snack for when you're watching movies together. (You do have movie nights with your dog, don't you? Sable prefers cheesy 80s comedies.)

Happy eating!
