Kick Start The Day

We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? Well this simple, quick and effective powerhouse breakfast recipe is the perfect meal to break the fast for our pups! You can follow this with their normal brekkie (with a short break of 30 mins – 1 hour is advised).

Ingredients

Kefir – gut restoration food. Kefir is both antibacterial and anti-fungal, and is full of live good bacteria.

Coconut oil. This can kill giardia and is an effective aid in helping your dog to rid themselves of worms and other nasty parasites. Used externally, coconut can also act as a repellent for fleas and ticks (make sure your coconut oil is 100% organic cold pressed, raw).

Calendula. This is a natural pain relief and has wonderful healing powers. Its antibacterial, anti-fungal, antimicrobial properties make it beneficial for boosting health and immunity.

Mixed berries (pomegranate, goji and blueberries. Organic if possible). All of these are a good source of fibre. Pomegranate is a natural anthelmintic (anti parasite) and is useful against tapeworm. Goji berries contain antioxidants and are high in vitamins and minerals. The same can be said for blueberries.

Mint (homegrown is best). This promotes digestion, stimulates enzyme production and soothes the stomach. Mint is also uplifting.

Cucumber. Cucumber contains cucurbitacin which is an amino acid that paralyses and eliminates worms from the digestive tract. Feeding organic cucumbers is very important because they make the Dirty Dozen list for 2019.

Thyme (homegrown is best). Traditionally used to treat worms in children and still often found in natural worming blends today, thyme is antiseptic and antispasmodic.

Below we’ve given you some ideas for presentation (our gojis are re-hydrated)! Remember, if you make this recipe we would love to see it. Post it on social media and tag us using #teamstefs.
