Fresh With Your Pet Part 2
Me: So, have you ever cooked a dinner from one of those meal-kit delivery services?
Tom: Me? Never.
Me: You want to try one? I’ve got Winner Winner Chicken Orzo Dinner with cheesy roasted vegetables.
Tom: You’ve got What What Chicken Who?
Me: Winner Winner Chicken Orzo Dinner. It’s chicken breast, orzo, and roasted vegetables. It comes from Hello Fresh.
Tom: I’m game. Let’s do it!
So Bodhi and I packed up a bag with the Hello Fresh meal, a knife, a baking sheet, and some Freshpet Tender Chicken with Garden Vegetables Dog Food Recipe so the dog wouldn’t feel left out.
Tom was a regular Jacques Pepin in the kitchen!
He prepped all the ingredients. Cooked the chicken in the pan. Poured a couple of glasses of wine. Prepared a side salad. And had a tug of war with Bodhi while the vegetables roasted.
After they were done rough-housing, we sat down to enjoy a great meal. Tom enjoyed the meal so much he decided to try Hello Fresh again.
Me: What? Me? Try the dog food? What are you talking about?
Clark: You heard me. The new dog food. It smells really good. Did you sample it?
Me: Why would I try the dog food? I would never do that. You’re crazy.
Clark: Really? Remember when I made those peanut butter treats for Bodhi way back when? You sampled those. Enthusiastically I might add.
He had me. I did sample the dog treats. (You can see the results here!) And I do have to admit Freshpet’s Tender Chicken with Garden Vegetables Dog Food Recipe did smell good, but I decided to take Bodhi’s “word” for when it came to taste!
And based on how enthusiastically he’s eaten his Freshpet foods over the last three weeks, I would have to say he really enjoys the taste.
Freshpet describes its food this way:
Packed with vitamins and proteins, our meals use high-quality meats, poultry, and vegetables farmed in the United States. We lock in nutrients naturally by gently cooking at low temperatures. That means your pet gets more nutrients from ingredients we put in. Like amino acids, the basic building blocks that help dogs and cats grow, thrive and get the most out of life.
But don’t just take Freshpet’s word for it… The Dog Food Advisor website has this to say:
Bottom line? Freshpet Select is a meat-based rolled dog food using a significant amount of beef or poultry as its main sources of animal protein, thus earning the brand 5 stars. Enthusiastically recommended.
