You and your dog can get fit together (yes, there are dog-friendly gyms, but that’s not my point!), and it all starts from the kitchen. I mean, you can treat yourself to some of the healthiest foods and share them with your dog.
We all know that there are some foods that we can’t share with dogs because they’re toxic for dogs, such as chocolate, avocado, grapes, etc., but there are others — fruits and vegetables — that we can enjoy together.
If you want some special superfoods for dogs and for yourself, you’ve come to the right corner! Here is a list of how to make your dog healthy and be healthy as well with these superfoods for dogs and humans!
1. Eat more carrots
Want to know how to make your dog healthy and become healthy yourself? Try eating more carrots as they are rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, potassium, and fiber. They will boost your energy, improve eye health, and help maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
Plus, chewing on carrots can help maintain your dog’s dental health and improve it.
2. Eat more kale
If you want healthy bones, healthy vision, a healthy heart, a healthy colon, and liver detox, you should eat more kale. Kale is packed with nutrients; it is high in antioxidants, magnesium, potassium, and iron, so it’s also great for your dog.
Try making kale treats for your dog at home, it will keep infections at bay (thanks to its antioxidants), and your dog will love it!
3. Eat more sweet potatoes
Sweet potatoes are sweet, and dogs love that! This superfood serves as a delicious, safe, and healthy treat for your dog; it is low in fat but high in essential vitamins like vitamin A, vitamin C, and Vitamin B6, which support the immune system, boost brain function and improve gut health.
You can make sweet potato dough, sweet potato chips, and mashed sweet potatoes for your dog, and you are guaranteed that they will love them! Make sure you and your dog get your fill of sweet potatoes!
