We all know the bodybuilding crowd consumes mass amounts of eggs. To be more specific, egg whites. The question becomes when you are cooking those up, are there two little eyes staring up at you in the kitchen?
If you are a body builder with a dog in the house, don’t toss those egg yolks. The pan is still hot. When your omelet is done, pop the yolks in the pan and treat your dog to a nutrient packed “Doggie Body Builder Omelet”.
Egg yolks are an excellent source of protein, cholesterol, and fat. These are essential for dogs – protein builds muscle and fat encourage energy. Egg yolks contain vitamins E, D, A and K.
“Just the fats man, Just the fats…”
The Fats: Are good for your dog’s coat and skin.
The Cholesterol: No worries. It does not affect dogs as it does humans. It will give your dog a shiny coat.
The Vitamins: Provide a nutritional boost not found in most dog foods.
Vitamin A – benefits the eyes and keeps the body’s mucous membranes moist.
Vitamin D – helps dogs absorb calcium, which in turn promotes bone health.
Vitamin E – protects the body’s tissues and encourages healthy red blood cell formation.
Vitamin K – is essential for blood clotting.
Ingredients: 1-6 Egg yolks depending on the size of your dog (and how many you have left over)
1 sprinkle of Pink Salt. (contains trace minerals)
Recipe: Scramble and serve with a dog cookie of your choice 😉
The Result: A happy spoiled healthy dog who loves you very much.
