Re: Cook, portion + freeze (My recipe)

I think what I had in there was a sprout mix by Parrot Sprouts And More, which appears to be out of business? Owner was Bruce.

Here's what the sprout mix looked like dry




I've also used a sprout mix that my local parrot store uses... although he has his food vendor make up the sprout mix specifically for him...





Here's a different batch I had made without sprouts... dubbed "Kitchen Sink"

Thank you for your input, MonicaMC.

I'll stick with my mix, thank you very much. It's been approved by my avian vet.

Re: Cook, portion + freeze (My recipe)

My bird also enjoys the same foods (it's kind of how i eat anyhow as a vegetarian, but i do sometimes cook a few portions at a time just for the birds). I'm wondering....my Gilbert ADORES brussels sprouts and any kind of cabbage. Anyone else have a bird like that? Georgie hated it.

Re: Cook, portion + freeze (My recipe)

All of my birds like brussle sprouts and cabbage. At walmart and also the grocery store I buy bags of angel hair cabbage which is just a very fine sliced cabbage. Take some outfor the birds and fry the rest for my husband .even the canary likes it. Yesterday I peeled and chopped Some rutabaga to cook with Tiki to help and she loved it raw in a peeled chunk. Just keep trying all different types of veggies and fruits and it is amazing the things they like

Re: Cook, portion + freeze (My recipe)

Yes, my canary really pigs out on the fresh veggies too. I'm amazed how much he can eat for such a tiny little guy.

Re: Cook, portion + freeze (My recipe)

Oh yes, brussels sprouts are a HUGE hit with my 3 babies. And it's kind of funny, because they seem to be the ONLY ones enjoying them tremendously other than me. I admit..Brussels Sprouts in a human (<--me) leave some negative side effects. But they are SO healthy....GULP.

Did I say too much?

The recipe I wrote really leaves endless options WIDE open. Add steamed sweet potatoes, zucchini, chopped raw or steamed broccoli, chopped collard greens (VERY VERY healthy for both fids AND humas ), chopped dandelions (available at farmer's markets here), etc. etc. etc.

It all boils down to this: Try and make it as easy and as much fun as possible. And when you see your fids enjoying the trouble you went through ---- OH what a GREAT feeling that is.

Wendy,
About how much of your fids' daily intake is usually the mix? I'm going to make a (much smaller) batch for Pritti and me. It looks yummy.

I'm wondering about the boiling time -- does it come out to "human food" softness, or is it more chewy. I ask because usually when I cook soaked beans or brown rice they take 60+ minutes and 50+ minutes respectively. Dry beans usually take longer for me to get soft.

P.S. I don't think there is anythig unhealthy about cooking the foods together. I think it might be more of a recommendaiton for recipes because each of the foods would need a different cooking time for each to be at their optimal "human" recipe firmness. Also, for sure, I know that if there was any kind of acidic item in there, like tomatoes or vinegar, that it would stop the absorption process of the beans and they wouldn't soften much. This is a good beany link Cooking Tips - The Michigan Bean Commission
