Making Raw Feeding Fun With Balanced Blends Pet Food – Contest & Sweepstakes!

K9sOverCoffee Makes Raw Feeding Fun With Balanced Blends Pet Food

We are Foodies here at K9sOverCoffee and appreciate a well-presented dish that’s aesthetically pleasing –  this goes for both human AND K9 food, so we knew we had to enter Balanced Blends’ Making Raw Feeding Fun Contest when asked if we’d consider it!

Who is Balanced Blends?

K9sOverCoffee | Balanced Blends. Because They're Family.

Balanced Blends is a Boulder, Colorado based raw food company we worked with earlier this year and also supported on Kickstarter. In case you missed our post in April, here it is again:

Disclaimer: Balanced Blends provided us with 10 lb of free raw food for our participation in the “Make Raw Feeding Fun” Contest. Here on K9sOverCoffee, I only share information I feel is relevant to my readers. Balanced Blends is not responsible for the content of this blog post.

High-End Restaurant Inspired Raw Food Dish

I found the inspiration for our contest picture while browsing food art on Pinterest. I knew I wanted to take a minimalistic approach and fell in love with a food presentation shaped like puzzle pieces

The Ingredients We Used For Our Dish

For this particular dish, we used 6 ingredients:

  • Balanced Blends Beef Dinner for the puzzle pieces
  • Balanced Blends Chicken Dinner for the paw prints
  • Canned Pumpkin Purée for the stars
  • 2 Blueberries
  • Homemade Green Lipped Mussel Powder 
  • Organic Ground Ginger 

I sprinkled my presentation with a little green lipped mussel powder and ground ginger and pawlà! Missy was licking her chops over it throughout the entirety of our photoshoot 😉

Canned pumpkin puree from Libby's works great for healthy dog treats that keep your pup regular

Bottom Line

We had a lot of fun with this food challenge, from brainstorming ideas to finding silicone molds for our food shapes, putting everything together and doing the photoshoot – with an ever so patient K9 model, by the way!

Missy truly earned her dinner that particular night and of course ended up eating the puzzle pieces in no time!

18 months into raw feeding and we are definitely no longer puzzled by it!

  1. That is so creative, and looks so good! I went over and voted for you. I don’t get too fancy around here usually, but sometimes for the dogs’ birthdays I’ll do something special. I did puppy cheesecakes in a pumpkin mold this year. It was pretty simple and fun too!
