#businesstalk This post is going to be a different one…
Did you know?
That we give part of our proceeds back to organizations that effect our beloved community and the welfare of animals in other countries?...
…areas in countries where they think shooting an animal for fun is OK, or that hitting a dog with your car is no big deal. That is where out proceeds go. These are situations that YOU are indirectly helping, now that you know that, that must feel good knowing that you are part of a greater cause. Click here to learn more.
So, why am I telling you this? To show I’m a ‘good’ person? No.
I am telling you this so that you know WHERE your money is going after doing business with us. So, why is this important?
A lot is happening in the world right now, and with that being said, do you want to know what the #1 issue is? It shocked me when I found out.
This post is to educate you guys on knowing how and where to spend your hard earned dough, which companies to support and why.
KNOW whose pockets your cashola is going to, because we as a society are ignorantly and indirectly supporting the wrong people. How do I know this?
Because human trafficking is over a BILLION dollar industry, yes, that’s right, capital ‘B’.
Do you know who owns Starbucks? Do you know who actually owns giants such as Wal-Mart, IBM and Amazon? See what I mean, you are supporting companies and brands that you do not personally know.
My new goal has been to support businesses where I know the owners on first name basis.
Full disclosure: Over this past year I have changed the way I do business, I have become very methodical on where I spend my hard earned money, and did you know that I used to be a Starbucks fan? Yup, I used to hit up Starbucks almost on a weekly basis, unknowingly supporting a corporation owned by a multi trillion dollar chemical company, that’s right, I was putting chemicals in my body on a regular basis that messed with my hormones and overall health. Not so good.
KNOW who you are supporting, if not on a first name basis then do your homework and research, get a little inconvenienced about it, it just might lead you down a much more meaningful path.
We can all make a positive impact in this world, either in big ways or small, but just knowing you are being a little bit more #businessconscience, will make a world of a difference both on the inside and out.

The recipe is perfect for:
This recipe is appropriate for kibble, raw and cooked fed pets. It is not a balanced recipe to be fed daily, however, it is packed with nutrition and gut loving ingredients, and even though it does not have any meat, it is very high in protein.
Quinoa; Is in the amaranth family, it is gluten-free and contains high amounts of protein as it contains all of the essential amino acids. Quinoa is also easy to digest and is hypo-allergenic. It is high in fiber (which acts as a prebiotic in the gut), B-vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, phosphorus and manganese. Just like rice, always rinse your quinoa before cooking it, both for you and your pets.
Kefir: Specifically coconut milk kefir that we carry, as it is fermented coconut milk using kefir grains (probiotic), kefir is actually a symbiotic as it contains both pre and probiotics. It helps to soothe and balance the gut.
Sea vegetables: Including spirulina, chlorella, AFA (E3) Live algae, these are all super potent phytonutrients that help support whole body health. They are nutritive, healing and detoxifying all at the same time. Dosing will vary per pet by body weight. Ask us for our sea vegetable complex (yes we ship!).
Egg (optional): The perfect protein, so long as it is both free range and free run, and the chickens are fed their ‘species appropriate diet’, you can choose to either feed it raw or slightly poached. The free-range eggs from our chickens are more nutritionally dense than other farm eggs, as our chickens are both pasture raised and fed a non-GMO diet that is both corn and soy free. Eggs are also a natural source of PEA (Palmitolylethanolamide) an antioxidant and health molecule that works through the endocannabinoid system and is responsible for maintaining overall cellular health and homeostasis.

Feed the normal amount you would normally feed your pet(s) of whatever diet they are on, if unsure of the amount then I would recommend a weight scale. The ingredients in this recipe are easy to digest (hence the name), meaning they are not as calorie dense as a normal diet, so it will be easier on the stomach.
Please note this recipe is not to be fed daily, 7 times per week.
