Share the Health

I had a lap band surgery a few months ago, and I am being very conscious of what I buy to eat. Organic, low fat, extra vitamins. My guilty pleasure is baby food oatmeal in a jar, ready made.

Often I can't finish the food I prepare, and I've started evaluating it for dog fodder. If you stop and think about it, we've been told not to give dogs people food because table food used to be generally junk, high in fat and loads of bread. MY table food (I use the term loosely)is as a good as what I feed my dogs anyway.

Sadly, my dogs have always eaten good quality food, while me, not so much. Maybe our new motto should be "I want to eat as well as my dog!"

Funny you should mention this. I am taking a page from my nutrition for pets book and am trying to eat healthier too. I'm well on my way to lapband land myself, if I don;t get some weight off. We really should treat ourselves as well as we treat our pets.

Yes we should. One of the things I do when I buy food for me is ask myself if I would feed it to the dogs-if the answer is no, I probably shouldn't feed it to myself.
