Double Duty! Carnivore Cake OR Meatloaf

My Mission – Dog Health and Happiness!

I am on a mission to help you feed your dogs a truly supportive diet. Reach out to me for help.

Around 2008, I founded DogFoodCoach.com after I started removing commercial dog food from my dog’s diet, and began replacing it with real, homemade, simple food for my own soulmate dog, Cori. Once I got rolling, I never looked back. I believe the best pet food is not “pet food” at all. It’s real, whole food you can buy at your own grocery store or online. Reach out to me for help.

About Cori, one of my inspirations for DogFoodCoach.com and so much more….

Cori, seen here enjoying one of my crockpot stews. A central part of me is gone now as Cori died in August 2017. Here is our story….

Cori, a golden retriever mix of some sort, came to me off the rescue truck as a scared pup from Georgia. During our time together, she overcame amazing hurdles, including becoming blind from glaucoma at age three.

Our journey into homemade food began in 2007, when I began researching pet foods and discovered that with a few exceptions, I can’t put my faith in the safety of most commercial foods on the market today. Learning about recalls, chemicals, fillers, mold and all sorts of other contaminants led me to say “enough is enough,” and I transitioned my best furry friend onto homemade food. Now I know exactly what’s in her food. I control the ingredients, the quality and the freshness, and I feel at ease knowing I am not subjecting Cori to the culinary unknown.

After Cori began eating homemade, human-grade food, her fur became softer, a lump on her back disappeared, and her spirits remained high into her elderly years. I truly believe that giving her clean, whole foods — and constant love of course — made all the difference in her long life.

My new addition to the family, Autumn (seen lounging) is on the same track.  She has never had a kibble based diet.

I hope you will let me help you create an excellent, truly supportive diet for your dog. That is my mission and I have seen many dog caregivers pursue the same goals once they get going.

  4. Add your rinsed, chopped vegetables to the top of the meat mixture, and press vegetables down slightly. Here, I used chopped butternut squash and spinach, but there are many other options.

  5. Add several small dollops of coconut oil to the top of the vegetables, for about a total of a tablespoon.

  6. Bake for 45 to 60 minutes, depending on the kind of vegetables used. The turkey should cook through in about 45 minutes, but here the squash took about 60 minutes to get fork tender.

  7. After cooked, remove from oven and allow to cool. Then gently remove the loaf by slipping a spatula or bread knife underneath. It is quite delicate to remove at first, but will firm up after cooling and chilling in the fridge, so you may want to wait until then to remove it. Slice and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

This recipe firms up nicely after a day in the fridge, making it easier to slice.
