It is probably not surprising that Martha Stewart makes its dogs gourmet dog food from scratch. And Stewart shared how gourmet her dogs’ food is when she posted photos of the preparation process on Instagram. Stewart just made a batch of food for his two Chow Chows – Emperor Han and Empress Qin – and his two French Bulldogs – Bete Noire and Creme Brûlée – and it looks like this seemingly Michelin-star quality food is in super easy to do.
“Forty (40!) liters of delicious homemade dog food for my loves!” Stewart captioned an Oct. 3 post. “Ingredients cooked separately then coarsely chopped in a food processor. Quinoa, broccoli, peas, carrots, sweet potato, butternut squash, cabbage, turnip, celeriac, beef, fish, chicken, duck. All nests and cooked fish with bones. All broth mixed with solids. No salt!! Dogs love this food and by the way, they are healthy examples of their breeds”

And the recipe looks good enough for people to eat it too. One commenter wrote: “Hell, I would eat this over jasmine rice.”
In a 2020 blog post, Stewart shared more information about how her homemade dog food comes together and why she chooses the ingredients she makes. “Green peas are a good source of B vitamins, thiamin, phosphorus and potassium,” she wrote, adding, “Sweet potatoes are also great for digestive health as they are high in dietary fiber. They are low in fat and contain vitamin B6, vitamin C and manganese, and they are rich in beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant.
Stewart also likes to use quinoa because it’s “an amazing gluten-free superfood with high levels of essential amino acids. It is a protein-rich grain-type food, so feed it in small amounts.
But before you dive in and whip up 40 liters of your own Martha Stewart dog food, Stewart stresses that it’s important to “research this your needs of pets” and understand that “it is very important that dogs also receive adequate amounts of calcium and omega-3 fatty acids,” noting that supplements can be added to any homemade dog food. receipts. “And, always talk to a veterinarian or canine nutrition expert before making any changes to a dog’s diet,” adds Stewart.
Finally, when it’s time to feed her puppies, Stewart adds a spoonful of the mix to the dry kibble to give her dogs some variety.
“Cooking for your dogs is a personal choice, but if you have the time and are willing to try, I know your pets will love every meal,” Stewart wrote. Give your dog the experience of a five-star restaurant and try homemade dog food to treat him even more than he already does.
