Dr. Katy On Day Two of Life Without the Fridge

By: Katie Tyson

 

Today was a better day in the Freshpet Fridge Challenge!  By spending a little time in the grocery store today, I was able to buy some fresh fruits and vegetables that don’t require refrigeration, and I got some great fresh meats and veggies for dinner. While going to the grocery store can be great, having to do this everyday without a fridge would be less than ideal!

 

It’s amazing how eating fresh healthy proteins and vegetables keep you feeling fuller longer rather than the carb-laden products that we keep in our pantries.  This is really kicking my brain into gear while I’m thinking about how this relates to our pets.

 

Pet obesity is rampant in our country, and there HAS to be a correlation to the carb-loaded kibble that we’ve been feeding for years.  These convenience foods that we scoop up and pour into their bowls don’t keep them feeling full for very long, so they’re back in our faces begging for more shortly after eating.  And we all know how hard it is to say no when those big brown eyes are staring into ours.
