Congratulations to the winner, Leigh!!
When Brody’s not catching aerials or checking out Bettys on the beach, he’s thinking about eating. At least, I think that’s what he’s thinking about.
And since we just had a big special occasion, we decided to celebrate his surfing success with the penultimate California snack: fish tacos.
Fortunately for us I have a big box of Zeal from The Honest Kitchen. THK is a regular in our rotation, and I know how excited people were when they came out with a fish-based diet for sensitive dogs. It’s a whitefish and sweet potato diet that is grain free, gluten free, and ethoxyquin-free.
I’ve tried fish-based foods before and very often, wind up with some unpleasant gaseous problems as a result. No guarantees how it will be for you, but Zeal didn’t cause that same problem with Brody or Koa. And as someone who hates the smell of fish with a passion, this food doesn’t smell fishy even when you reconstitute it.
I’m into simple things right now. Dog fish tacos are as simple as can be.
1. Reconstitute Zeal with warm water.
2. Put in a taco shell (obviously not something you want to do if your pet does have certain dietary sensitivities)
3. Garnish while your dogs get impatient.
If you’d like to make this for your own dog, or if you just want to try out Zeal- I have a 10 pound box of Zeal to give away courtesy of The Honest Kitchen! This makes 43 pounds of fresh food. This box retails for $100.
