3 Meals You Can Enjoy With Your Dog

Throw your dog a bone… by sharing a steak

It’s hard not to feel a tinge of guilt after plopping a log of congealed gravy, animal bits, and grains into your dog’s bowl, as you sit down to dine on a fine cut of steak, some creamed spinach, and a side of mashed potatoes. Wouldn’t it be nice if you and your dog could eat together — not as owner and pet, but as equals?

Fortunately, we’ve planned out a balanced menu of three healthy dishes — one each for breakfast, lunch, and dinner — that both you and your pooch can devour together.

The only question is: One bowl or two?

Here are three meals you can enjoy with you dog.

Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats

After your morning walk, sit down with your dog to a nice helping of apple-cinnamon overnight oats. An apple a day apparently keeps the veterinarian away by providing your pooch with vitamins A and C and antioxidants. The oats are also an excellent source of dietary fiber and protein, and can help resolve your dog’s digestive issues.

Salmon Cakes

Salmon is the ultimate protein for humans and dogs alike. These salmon cakes can be thrown together in minutes, and their light seasoning of salt, pepper, and a tablespoon of Dijon mustard (an amount which can be reduced if your dog has a sensitive stomach), are what makes these cakes delicious and easily digestible. Salmon’s omega-3 fatty acids helps dogs maintain silky skin and a healthy coat of fur, as well as fortifying their immune system.

Steak and Eggs

It might be a little heavy for breakfast, but this platter of steak and eggs is perfect for after a long day of fetch. When feeding dogs steak the rule of thumb is the rarer the better. Steak cooked medium or well-done will give your doggie some digestive troubles. Season this steak with salt and pepper, sear for three minutes on each side, and top with an over-medium egg. If it’s a bone-in sirloin, well, so much the better.
