What’s on your Thanksgiving menu? Turkey, green beans, sweet potatoes? Sounds good to us, and your pet will probably like these too. As long as the turkey treat doesn’t have bones and isn’t too greasy, that’s fine in moderation. And so are the green beans and sweet potatoes, both loaded with good nutrients to support eye health.
While we’re not suggesting your serve your pets treats from the table, there are foods that you can prepare that are safe and good for them:
- Boiled broccoli, packed with beta-carotene
- Raw or cooked green beans (without butter or seasoning), good source of fiber and vitamins C, K
- Raw carrots, rich in Vitamin A, B, C, D, K riboflavin, niacin, calcium
- Salmon and tuna, high in Omega-3 fatty acids
- Eggs, protein rich
- Cooked sweet potatoes, packed with beta-carotene
And let’s not forget pumpkin, chock full of Vitamin A and fiber. Serve it raw or cooked, but with no sugar or seasonings. If you want to ramp it up a bit, you can make yummy grain-free pumpkin pupcakes from the folks at A Cozy Kitchen.
From our table to yours, have a joyful Thanksgiving and bon appétite to you and your pets!
