Well it’s that time of year again…the pants are WAY too tight and we’re all trying out our “lifestyle changes” for the new year. Mine is pretty difficult, aside from more exercise, (all right, I admit it – I haven’t done any since the summer!), I’m doing a 75% vegan/raw diet. Basically, two meals & snacks per day are raw & vegan, and often the third meal is vegan. My dehydrator has been on as much as the furnace lately! I’m really loving raw breads and crackers, but that’s a whole other blog. Vegan meals are no problem – one really great vegan meal is steel cut oats. I can’t stomach regular oatmeal, the texture just grosses me out for some reason. But I love chewy steel cut oats; I just cook them in water, then when they’re finished, I add about a cup of berries and a handful of raw pumpkin or sunflower seeds and hemp hearts. It looks like this before I stir it:
I had a cup and a half left over, so I thought I’d make The Boys some bones out of it. All of the ingredients are awesome for dogs, and they of course were spoiled at Xmas along with the rest of us, so these are some great vegan treats for them too! I only added flour and water to make these bad boys. I love when leftovers from my meal can be repurposed for my number one fans – I highly recommend these!
