    Default Anyone want to see my raw food packaging?

    I split a big order with someone and portioned out a few things, along with detailed pictures of how she could do it herself next time.

    If anyone is interested, I can email or post the pictures with notes. I would have loved to see this when I first got started instead of so much trial and error, or confusion.

    I uploaded the pictures because it was a PITA to write her notes for email. Most details are generic but some are specific for her. The pictures loaded in reverse order so, unless someone can tell me how to fix that, you'll have to start at the end and go backwards.

    This is just a sampling of what I feed but (I hope) it explains how and why I portion things out like I do. I use larger jars than I need to because the food is still mostly frozen and you can't pack it down like fully thawed. Now that I have a dog, it also makes it easier to use one size for the cats and one for the dog. Dog eats 6 oz. per meal and the cats split 4.5. I measure the (complete) ground meals carefully but the add-ins may be heavier or lighter. That was my first time cutting up a whole bird and I was proud of myself for working it out.

    I would be happy to answer any questions! I found coming up with a system was the hardest part. It took me longer to wash my hands and get the pictures than actually packing the food.

    I have 3 kids. Preparing the animals' food has to be quick and easier than making their food.
