It's towards the end of the week and I've made my may through several sweet potato recipes. At various points throughout the week these yummy root vegetables made appearances at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They were rarely the star of my meals, so I never got totally sick of them. However, at this point I am bit sweet-potatoed-out and need to find something to do with what I have remaining.
Making dog treats is a fun project, especially with kids. And, your four-legged friend will thank you :-).
According to PetMD:
Cooked sweet potatoes are healthier choices for dogs because they contain important nutrients such as vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin C, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and iron. Vegetables with an orange color contain beta-carotene, which is a precursor for vitamin A and an antioxidant that helps boost immunity.
Boiled, steamed, baked, or dehydrated sweet potatoes can be great snacks for your dog. However, check with your veterinarian before adding sweet potato to your dog’s diet because too much vitamin A can cause bone problems and muscle weakness.
