The Golden Paste Recipe My Dogs Like

The Golden Paste Recipe My Dogs Like

If you have also started taking golden paste then you know how bitter the turmeric tastes. I’ve read where some people just swallow it whole quickly followed by a drink of something.  I personally know I won’t stay with it if I hate it and I know I can’t force the dogs to eat something they don’t like short of hiding it in something they find tasty.  Truth is when I was making the original recipe, every time I tried to sneak some into Kirby's food, he would bark and bark until I replaced it with fresh food - He did not like it and was not going to eat it!  After much research I’ve found a way to make it much more palatable. Both dogs now scarf it done without so much as a whimper.

Golden Gummies

Golden Gummies

We have been incorporating turmeric into our meals and drinks so I've been experimenting with developing new tasty recipes to make it more of a lifestyle change due to the many health benefits it provides, both as a preventative and a treatment. Kirby loves his Gummy Paws which provide gelatin for his joints.  Combining gelatin and turmeric just makes sense. They do taste spicy but still rather bland to me so I'll have to tweak the recipe with another flavor but so far they are a huge hit with both him and Kenzie, our newest addition to the family. They each get a few throughout the day.

Frozen Golden Milk Treats

Frozen Golden Milk Treats

Golden Milk is an ancient drink and a delicious way to get the benefits of Turmeric daily without that bitter bite. I've found it's creamier with a fuller mouth taste when I use canned coconut milk. I also think the canned coconut milk has more of the coconut taste than the coconut milk in the carton which has a much thinner consistency.  Honestly I can't taste the bitterness at all and apparently Kirby can't either since he scarfs it right down.

Asian Fish Balls

Asian Fish Balls

I’m always trying to think outside of the box when it comes to Kirby’s meals and treats to give him a wide variety of flavors and textures. We were at a favorite Chinese buffet the other day when it happened again. There in all its glory was a soup filled with fish balls. I was already taking down notes on my phone since the Kirbster very much loves fish and seafood.

Beef Heart Soup

Beef Heart Soup

Beef heart has been called the poor man's steak (under $3.00 for a 3 lb heart) as it has a burst of extra meaty flavor. Since it’s one of the purest cuts of muscle, it is really dense and tender.  It’s very similar to steak, roasts and ground beef but actually has a higher protein content.
