Honest Kitchen Base Mix Review

Disclosure: I received these products for free to review. The opinions in my review are honest and my own.

Have you ever tried making homemade pet food? While there are dozens (if not hundreds) of recipes online, it is hard finding recipes that are nutritionally balanced for our dogs. We have even considered doing a raw diet or protein rich diet for Reya, but most of what I have seen isn’t as healthy as Reya’s normal food. Reya does, however, love table scraps and I would love to supplement her diet with better foods. While looking at a variety of homemade food recipes, I was approached by Honest Kitchen, asking us to review their Base Mix for making balanced homemade food. After a bit of reading, we couldn’t wait for Reya to try it!

Honest Kitchen Base Mix: Overall

As a fan of Honest Kitchen’s Food, I walked into this review with high expectations. Our dog absolutely loves their food and goes crazy when she sees us open the box. I was curious to see if she would love this food base just as much. Early in the day, we had a barbeque outdoors with all of our friends and had some extra bit of ground beef left over. We left the seasoning out when it was cooked, and broke it apart to see if Reya would like it inside of this food. Really, I thought this base turned a treat into a nutritious meal that she absolutely loved. She loved it so much that she completley cleaned the dish, and best of all, it was super easy to make. The hardest part was actually breaking apart the hamburger! Based on our own experience, we are delighted to give Honest Kitchen’s Base Mix an A+ rating!

    I do not own a dog but my daughter just rescued a German Shepard from the pound and I am going to share this post with her as I think she will be interested.

    Love this post! As a fellow dog lover this is right up my alley. Animals are such treasures and definitely want to give my Cooper the best food possible.

    I enjoyed reading your review on Honest Kitchen Base Mix Recipe! I don’t know how I feel about giving my girls a “raw” diet. I don’t like things raw and I’m afraid to feed it to my girls as well. I have 2 of the most finicky eaters around! Every night, when they get fed, they get their dog food mixed with some kind of cooked meat mixed in. Sometimes they scarf it down and other days they snub it. I always leave dry dog food out just in case they do get hungry before or after they get their main meal. An awful lot of dog owners would jump at the chance to feed their dogs a raw diet! I guess I’m too worried or over protective of my 2 shih Tzu’s! Thanks for the terrific information on this type of dog food! I know there will be an awful lot of people out there wanting this food! Thanks again, Michele 🙂

    I used to make my dog homemade dog biscuits and really tried to keep thing healthy since he had a heart condition. This is a great addition to a healthy diet when you just don’t have time to spare.
