My girls had mixed pepper stirfry last night - rice, all colours of peppers, peas, carrots, bean sprouts, onion, kale and blueberries for their pud. Tonight they got a couple of boiled eggs to fight over, kale, pineapple, apricot, peas, beansprouts, watercress and mint. I've only been doing a 50:50 fresh and dry mix for the past 3 weeks but the oldies seem alot happier and healthier and the babies are thriving :D Oh and a bit of denim for good measure they love a good chew through my jeans :lol:

Tonight's fresh part of the menu for the boys: Apple, carrot, beef, basil leaves, and probably a couple of pieces of pasta with a (homemade) tomato and herb sauce on.

Today mine have had cherry tomatoes, Kale and brocolli.

As a vegan it always looks more appealing when the ratties eat fresh food :)

Last night's menu changed slightly for the boys because I couldn't be bothered cooking pasta for myself :roll: So they got a bit of toast crust and some boiled egg as well as their fruit / veg / herbs. I think boiled egg might become a fave treat for them, it's the first time i've seen them go really nuts for food! :shock:

Whoop! Not sure if you're aware or not, but those stir fry bags freeze really well. Because everything is pre-chopped you can very easily break off the amount you want to give from the frozen lump. Really handy when it's all horrible and hot :lol:
