Okay, who here has a dog (or has had a dog)? (I am virtually looking for a show of hands!)
So for you pet lovers, many of you probably take a look at ingredients and buy your beloved pup good food without nasty fillers which not just include grains and corn, but corn cobs, feathers, peanut hulls, and straw. Basically, it’s stuff that’s good for manufacturers because it’s dirt cheap to produce, but it’s not good for your fur baby.
The foods with fillers have no nutritional value, and is just a fraction of the chicken, beef, or other animal product that it’s supposed to be flavored as.
So, if you won’t feed your pup that food, why should you feed yourself that?
But what do you mean, Nicole, I don’t feed myself dog food?
No, but maybe you’re better off.
Before starting this clean eating lifestyle, I remember making huge carb-filled dinners with pasta and chicken (I made chicken parm a lot).
I used to make whole wheat pasta several times week – because it was cheap, easy to make, and filling.
The pasta, just like the dog food, has no real nutritional value.
Oh, it has fiber, sure. But so does roasted kale.
