Spinach and Goat Cheese Frittata

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1 teaspoon organic extra virgin coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh organic baby spinach leaves

  3. Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl, add the water, and whisk
  4. Add the spinach to the eggs and stir (you can add all the spinach here if you’d like, although we chose to place some pieces of the spinach on the omelet once it was in the skillet – see step 6)
  5. Pour the eggs in the skillet
  6. Place a few spinach leaves on top of the omelet
  7. Let the eggs firm up a bit, then tilt the skillet and lift the egg slightly with a spatula to allow the remaining liquid to run onto the skillet. Continue to do this until all liquid is gone

  9. Top with goat cheese
  10. Let cool, and cut into appropriate serving sizes for your pup

French Toast (Dog-Safe)

You might be wondering what the difference is between a typical French toast recipe, and a dog-friendly French toast recipe.  The difference is very minimal – but EXTREMELY important.  Most French toast recipes call for nutmeg.  Nutmeg is a huge NO-NO on your pup’s ingredient list due to a compound in the nutmeg called Myristicin , which can cause seizures in dogs.

Dog-Safe French Toast

Ingredients:

  • 1 organic egg
  • 2 organic egg whites
  • 1/2 cup  organic milk ***
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon organic ground cinnamon
  • 4 slices organic bread
  • non-fat butter flavored cooking spray

***Some dogs do not do well with milk.  We used regular milk, but if your dog does not do well with regular milk, you can experiment with almond milk, coconut milk, or goat’s milk. 

DIRECTIONS:

  • Whisk egg and egg whites.
  • Add milk, vanilla and cinnamon, then whisk again.
  • Coat your skillet with non-fat cooking spray and set stove to medium-low heat.
  • Generously dip the bread into the egg mixture, turning the slice to coat it thoroughly.
  • Cook the bread slices in the hot skillet, turning until both sides are lightly browned.

Most people top their French Toast with butter and/or syrup.  Hold off on those not-so-healthy toppers for your pup.  Instead, choose strawberries and/or bananas to add some sweetness, or drizzle a small amount of organic honey on top.
