2 tbsp olive oil

3 lbs ground turkey

3 medium sweet potatoes

3 carrots, peeled

2 zucchini squash

1 cup broccoli florets

3 cups chicken stock or water (no salt added)

20 ounces cooked macaroni noodles, such as ditalini


  1. Cook turkey: In a large Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat. Add ground turkey, begin to break it down, and cook for 8-10 minutes, or until mostly cooked through.

  2. Chop veggies: With a food processor, finely chop sweet potatoes, carrots, zucchini and broccoli.

  3. Add vegetables and stock: Add in the chopped vegetables and chicken stock (or water). Cook on a strong simmer for 7-8 minutes, or until veggies are tender and cooked through.

  4. Stir in pasta: Mix in your cooked pasta noodles to the turkey vegetable mixture.

Feeding: Portion out meals accordingly. For every 10 lbs, you need roughly 1/2 cup of food per meal. Example: If you have a 20 lb dog, they will eat 1-1.5 cups of the batch per meal (2-3 cups total per day).



Slow Cooker: Add in all the ingredients and cook on high for 4 hours. This does cook down some of the nutrients as the mixture cooks longer but it is can be an easier cooking method depending on your kitchen/time.

Storage: Store in an airtight container or zip-top bags for 5-7 days in the refrigerator and up to 3 months in the freezer. Thaw overnight in the fridge.

Reheat: Nuke it for 30-60 seconds in the microwave and cool slightly before serving.

**Please note** I am not a veterinarian, just a loving dog Mom and I highly recommend consulting with your vet that practices homemade / human-grade dog food practices before changing your dog’s diet. This meal plan has worked wonderfully for us and I hope it does the same for you.
