Healthy Homemade Dog Treats

I have been making treats for our two dogs for quite some time and I thought it might be fun to share the recipe I use.  These treats are wheat-free since I think commercially grown wheat is a questionable food.  I use oat flour instead, which is easily and inexpensively made by simply blending oats…

Blueberry Mango Tie Dye Smoothie

Well, I originally was trying to create a rainbow effect but this smoothie wanted to get all swirly when I tried to layer the colors.  It still came out looking pretty, tasting great, and delivering a good dose of fruit! It looks like a blueberries-and-cream drink, with the sweetness of mango and banana. Super simple…
