Sweet Potatoes for the Sweet
Twice a week, the hu-mom devotes a few hours to slicing sweet potatoes, boiling them, and finally, smushing them. Ultimately, they end up in our bowls.
First, sweet potatoes provide the Hooker Horde with healthy carbohydrates. But, perhaps more importantly, they are DELICIOUS.
Sweet potatoes entered our diet when Mr. Sunny Sunny Bun Bun arrived. As a morbidly obese senior with Cushing’s Syndrome, hu-mom was determined to help him lose weight. Therefore, part of each meal included smashed sweet potato.
Then, she added a small scoop to everyone’s kibble. We loved it.
Turns out, it’s really good for us, too.
Like humans, we need all of the natural antioxidants that come in “real” food. In processed commercial dog food many of the nutrients disappear during the high temperature processing.
Sweet potato is super easy to prepare and inexpensive.
