Getting Creative with Food #InspiredbyCrafted Dog Food

I’ve been telling you about Hill's® Ideal Balance® Crafted foods for dogs… you know the company that makes small-batch gourmet foods for ME! Well now I find that my owner has taken tips from Hill’s and is now making some creative, locally sourced, extra-special meals for herself!

She started out by going to the Vancouver Farmer’s Market and getting farm-fresh produce and healthy proteins like wild salmon from Alaska. Then she’d bring her finds home and figure out how to make something new for her dinner. This became her creative outlet.

My owner likes to be creative
with veggies from the garden
Now she grows her own broccoli, tomatoes and zucchini in MY BACKYARD. I have to be careful not to knock over the plants when I’m chasing squirrels with Francesca!

It isn’t just something new going on at my house. More Americans are choosing foods with an eye to nutrition, natural and locally sourced ingredients, and sustainable preparation processes. They’re not just considering those factors for their own plates, either – they’re thinking about them when it comes to choosing pet food, too. And that is where Hill’s Crafted foods come in.

Small batch means that Ideal Balance™ Crafted™ is made just the way my owner would cook things… one very special batch at a time. At Hill's Crafted they create unique recipes in small batches using high-quality proteins, wholesome vegetables and ancient grains. They know where their ingredients are sourced. It's the stuff that's good for me. And when you provide your dog Hill’s Crafted foods, you’ll know that their diet is well-balanced. And, although my owner would never admit it, Hill’s foods look about as good as her people food!

Now tell me, doesn't this look as good as any people food?
Since we're getting all artsy and creative here, how about new dog bowls to go with the new foods? Here's a video that gave me a great idea!

The new Hill’s® Ideal Balance® CraftedTM products are available at pet specialty retailers and online at Amazon etc. The dog product line (Dry, wet, treats) is already on shelves in PetSmart, as well as all of the products for cats. At Petco, Ideal Balance Crafted dog products appeared in April.  Here’s a Coupon for $7 off a Crafted Product so you have no excuse. Get out there and try Hill's Crafted products!

These are some of the Hill's Crafted foods I tried. I'm always up for taste testing foods!
You can also purchase Hill’s Crafted products online at Pet360.
