Prep Instructions

1. Optional: Hardboil eggs

2. Cook the plant matter. Sweet potato can be baked, pressure cooked, microwaved in a pinch... scoop flesh from sweet potato. Discard or compost skins.

3. Make your supplement mix. In a small bowl, combine the red ingredients according to the amounts given. This is the total amounts for the entire batch recipe. 14 days worth in this case. Mix into a fine powder. If you have tablets, crush them first. If capsules, empty them. Mix well!

4. Carefully and slowly mix your mineral mix from step 3 into your sweet potato. Mix well! The sweet potato will act as a carrier for these supplements in the recipe.

5. Now combine all blue ingredients- including animal ingredients and groats supplement ingredient. Mix well. Some items like the liver will need to be finely chopped or thrown in a blender.

6. Now portion into 14 days worth of food. You might do 14 containers and feed half the container at a time if doing 2 meals a day etc. Don't worry about each container weighing the exact same- just do your best to get it even. If you like to be specific, weigh the final batch (as it will vary in weight each time because of moisture) and divide that number by 14 to arrive at daily weight for each day.

7. Feed green ingredients fresh with their daily amounts that are given. To be clear- the green ingredients are daily amounts, Because this is important, I will repeat. Green ingredients are given in their daily amounts. batch amounts.

Transition slowly if needed.
