At the end of the day I am incredibly grateful for my four-legged companion.  Indiana is our chocolate lab, long-legged puppy who really thinks she IS a person.  She prefers human company to her canine friends and we are making sure she has a long, healthy life.  Today I am sharing a recipe I make weekly that includes the ingredients to Indiana’s dog food. Real Recipes. Real Ingredients. Real Good.


Dog Food Made with Whole Ingredients available at Target

Indiana’s favorite new food the DISH from Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe with Veggies & Fruit. Chocolate Lab Approved Meal. Now onto a dish for your favorite humans- ahem family.

Favorite Weekly Kid-Approved Meal

Chicken-Brown Rice-Vegetables 


2 Chicken Breast Filets

2 Squash

2 Large Carrots

2 Zucchini

2 Cups Brown Rice

2 Orange Bell Peppers

2 Red Bell Peppers

2 Yellow Onions

Olive Oil

Garlic Salt





Start the brown rice. I always add in butter and a pinch of garlic salt.

Prepare the chicken- I prefer stove-top, I drizzle olive oil over the chicken that I have sliced, two pinches of garlic salt.

While the chicken is cooking add in the onion, and bell peppers that you’ve cut to your desired size. Strips work best for our family.

Bake the Zucchini and Squash on 400 deg F in the oven- place on foil and salt to taste or drizzle olive oil. Check for correct tenderness- my kids prefer the veggies to be softer so it typically takes 2o minutes.


Kid-Approved Meal

Simply mix everything together on a plate and you’ve got a fabulous array of delicious AND healthy foods for your family dinner.  What’s even better is that Emma Marie get’s to feed our sweet puppy the same whole ingredients for her meals during the day.


On our trip to Target we pick up all of our needs for the week along with Indiana’s food.


Our chocolate lab is beside herself when she sees me scooping up her real dog food.  Emma Marie takes her role seriously and tends to Indy for every meal.  Indiana sits, shakes, and listens for the verbal cue from her before devouring the goodness.  Emma Marie politely pets her back and tells her how happy she is that Indiana is eating her food, “Like a good puppy.” 


Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® DISH- Dog Food

Our Indiana takes good care of us and giving her whole ingredients that will ensure she is getting tons of natural vitamins and minerals is a good place to start.


As I set in for the night I sit here and am completely grateful for this kind heart that night after night makes sure I’m not alone.  Dogs do truly know when you need them the most and her presence in the quiet evening hours helps more than she’ll ever know.
