Golden Veggie Mix

Updated: Aug 15

Vegetables provide soluble and insoluble fiber, antioxidants, phytonutrients, and an array of nutrients. Although dogs do not require carbohydrates for their essential nutrients, providing a small amount of non-starchy plant matter can be of benefit.


Fiber

Fiber is resistant to enzymatic digestion. This allows the carbohydrate to make its way to the colon and become fermented and creates Short-Chain Fatty Acid (SCFAs), which aids in healthy gut flora. In addition, this aids in the synthesization of vitamin K.


Phytonutrients

Phytonutrients are a wide variety of nonnutritive chemical compounds in plants. They aim to resist bacteria and viruses and fend off animals and bugs. Phytochemicals are a great source of antioxidants that have protective effects. A few examples of phytonutrients are polyphenols (flavonoids, isoflavonoids, anthocyanidins), terpenoids, carotenoids, limonoids, and fibers.


After some planning, this recipe is a sunshine-inspired golden veggie mix. We'll use all low glycemic index veggies prepped appropriately.
