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?
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 😉
Raw Feeding has been the last piece of the puzzle for a healthy pup here at K9sOverCoffee! ?It’s extra easy with a complete & balanced meat mix like the one from Balanced Blends (90% meat, organs, & bone; 10% organic fruits/veggies/vitamins/minerals). ?Missy was licking her chops over their ?beef & ?chicken recipe, as well as my ?pumpkin purée stars✨ & blueberries. ? We garnished her plate with organic ground ginger sprinkles & homemade Green Lipped Mussel powder. ??It is safe to say that we are no longer puzzled by raw feeding! ?? ?We’re participating in the “Make Raw Feeding Fun” Contest hosted by @balancedblendspetfood – voting starts Monday, Oct 17.

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!
