We make a collection of Hot Lunch Food Bars for a local boarding/daycare facility. We created this line of food bars to provide a fun snack or special dinner for the pups staying there. These food bars do not use our standard food recipes, but rather have been created to mimic comfort food recipes without using grain or gluten. We have 4 different food bars we currently offer. Here are some additional details about each one:
Turkey Hot Lunch Food Bar - This is the original hot lunch bar and is really similar to a
Thanksgiving dinner menu. We start with ground turkey and add an egg, kale, green beans, and a pinch of garlic powder. We bake these bars and then top them with sweet potato and a pea (to complete the sweet potato flower). These bars are great for dogs that may be nervous at the facility as the ingredients are helpful for upset tummies or loose stools.
Chicken Pot Pie Hot Lunch Food Bar - This recipe was created to share a winter comfort
food, pot pies with our dogs. Since we don't use any grain or gluten in our recipes, we use the ground chicken as the "crust". We stuff the pot pie with carrots and peas lightly cooked in chicken broth. We put fork marks on the top of the food bars to mimic those found on traditional pot pies.
Beef Stew Hot Lunch Food Bar - Another comfort food
converted to a healthy, dog friendly recipe. We start with ground beef, add an egg and green beans. We bake the bars and then top them with a dollop of rutabaga, substituted for white potato which has no nutritional value for dogs and a slice of carrot.
Pork Chops and Applesauce Hot Lunch Food Bar - Since I'm a child of the 70's and always
watched The Brady Bunch, Pork Chops and Applesauce is a saying that always brings a smile to my face. We take ground pork, add an egg and carrots. We bake the bars and then top them with a dollop of freshly made applesauce. We steam apples with a pinch of cinnamon and then puree them.
We prepare these recipes using our large food bar molds and small food bar molds. If you'd like more information about getting a few for your pup, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you live in the Chicagoland area, stop by Pawsitively Heaven Pet Resort and pick up a few for your pooch. Thanks so much!
