Ginger-Carrot Digestion Cookies
Adapted From The Self Healing Cookbook by Kristina Turner
Tru Trip: Dogs with hot, itchy, red skin may become over stimulated by the ginger in this recipe. Consult your veterinarian, or a holistic veterinarian. Doc Truli’s consults can offer useful guidance once your local veterinarian has assured your pet’s basic general health.
For instance, Doc Truli generally recommends this recipe for sluggish, lethargic, overweight dogs with oily, greasy skin and fur, like a fat, lethargic Cocker Spaniel, Labrador, Shih Tzu, or Lhasa Apso.
Yorkies with flaky, red, itchy, dry skin, even if it is greasy, generally feel better with the Oatmeal cookies, no ginger! And see your veterinarian for allergy and yeast dermatitis testing!
3/4 c rolled oats
1/2 c oat flour
1/4 c brown rice or barley flour (I prefer the barley flour)
2 c cooked millet
1 1/2 T corn oil (may substitute sunflower oil esp if corn allergy)
1 c fine shredded carrot
1 tsp vanilla (real, not artificial)
1 tsp finely grated Ginger
1/4 t sea salt
1 T sunflower seeds
1/2 c water ( approx )
Lightly roast oats and flours by stirring over medium heat in a skillet, until toasty smelling but not browned. Mix all ingredients and add just enough water for a moist, pliable but not mushy dough. Shape into cookies on an piled baking sheet. Bake at 350• for 30 minutes.

Never Cooked Millet before? It’s super easy!
1 c millet

Pinch sea salt
Wash millet and drain in a strainer. For the fluffiest texture and best flavor, dry roast in a skillet by stirring over medium heat until it smells toasty. Meanwhile, bring water to a boil. Add millet, salt, cover and simmer 25 min.)
For your vegetarian and vegan loved ones (all easy to order from Amazon):
-The Cookbook for People Who Love Animals, vegan

-Cooking the Whole Foods Way by Christina Pirello, macrobiotic (some recipes with fish, easy to avoid)
All three: no milk, no eggs, no cheese, no artificial, no packaged brand names. The books are fantastic to get started. I took classes with Christina Pirello and love her cooking and her wonderful spirit!
