How can your furry friend reduce its eco-”paw” print?
By eating a plant based diet.
This simple, in-expensive, DELICIOUS, vegan dog food recipe has made my pup happy, reduced her eco-pawprint, helped her allergies, and kept her extremely active for three years and many more to come.
Prep Time: 10 Min.
Total Time: 1 Hr. 10 Min.
INGREDIENTS: (I used all organic)
Two Large Sweet Potatoes
1 Can of black beans (garbanzo, pinto, kidney, and lentils are okay also)
2 Cups of BROWN rice
10 Small carrots, or 2 medium carrots
1 Cup of unsweetened cranberries
½ Cup of Peanut Butter
1 Tbsp. of Nutritional yeast
2 Bananas (optional)
- ¼ cup of pumpkin seeds (optional)
Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees. Stab the sweet potatoes about 9 times with a fork on one side. (this allows it to breathe while baking) Bake Sweet Potatoes (stabbed side up) for 50-55 minutes, until soft.
Put rice on stove and let cook for time provided on package.
Cut carrots into small chunks, about the size of regular dog pellets) and put into a large storing container or bowl. Mix in Cranberries.
Rinse the san of beans, put beans into mix.
Let the rice and sweet potatoes cool for 10 minutes.
Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into 1 in. chunks. Add Rice and Sweet potatoes to mix.

Serve! About 1 ½ cup is what I give my dog twice a day, a total of 3 cups a day. (morning and night)
