Eating organic, quality food has become a major priority in promoting healthy lifestyles of many humans, which begs the question--why don't we apply this same practice to feeding our dogs? Commercial dog food is full of additives, fillers, and other processed ingredients which can have negative impacts on a dog's overall health.

From mother-daughter duo Mimi and Lisa Kirk comes this eye-opening guide to feeding dogs a healthy, plant-based diet made of ingredients that are not only pet safe, but also human grade. Lentils, sweet potatoes, quinoa, kale, herbs and spices--all of these healthy human favorites have their place in the dog bowl! With dozens of Fido- approved recipes, The Plant-Based Dog Food Diet provides quick and easy basic meals and treats, an overview of what dogs need to stay healthy, and tips on food prep and storage.
