Labor Day Epic Meal Time

Labor Day weekend has come and gone.

On a typical holiday that many of us eat burgers and hot dogs, my labor day treat was a little atypical. Prickly pears or tunas in Spanish.

How To Prepare Prickly Pear As A Tasty Snack

Are you ready for this? It’s surprisingly easy and for those who frequent the blog won’t be surprised by the ingredients:

  • fruit, in this case the tuna
  • salt, preferably rock salt
  • lime juice

Buen provecho!

Dogs. Just like children, people like to tell you what to do with them, how to raise them and what to feed them.

So rather than tell you what to do with your pet, as you’ll feed him or her whatever you choose anyway, here’s a quick experiment that I did with my two Siberian huskies – Saskia and Zander.

Set Up of the Experiment

Potato chips, corn chips, candies … these are food items that we don’t give to our dogs. Thanks to the preservatives such sodium nitrate and other food additives that the dogs would not normally receive or have difficulty digesting, we just don’t make it an option for them. In part, this has lead to our desire to eat clean — if we won’t feed it to our dogs then why would we put it in our own bodies? How could it be good for us?

But like other dog owners we love that crunching noise they make when you give them something substantial to munch on. Things like veggies.

Yes, my dogs love to eat vegetables. Some more than others.
