Here is a sample recipe from Dr. Pitcairn's book that you can make in bulk:
- 5 cups rolled oats -raw
- 3 lbs (approx 6 cups) raw whole turkey, ground/chopped
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup vegetables, cooked or raw - grate if raw and use less
- Supplements: 6 tbsp (approx 1/3 cup) Healthy Powder (pg 53)
- 4 tsp group 1 bone meal
- 10,000 IU vitamin A (if using carrots, this is optional)

- 1 tsp tamari soy sauce, or 1/4 tsp., iodized salt (optional)
Cook the oats, then add the remaining ingredients. Makes about 18+ cups. Optionally, you can lightly cook the meat if you are not comfortable with completely raw. You can also substitute different grains and/or meats.
The book gives you more recipes, full information about
supplements, and a wealth of other information, so I encourage you to get a copy. Your dog will benefit if you do!
