Do you put much thought into what you feed your pets?

Unfortunately my little fur baby is sick and has diarrhea from antibiotics. Our pets are no different than us when it comes to food and digestion. They need a diet of protein, healthy fats and carbs from vegetables.

I use a grain free food, but she is getting a bland diet of boiled chicken, white rice and pumpkin to correct her GI issues. The same diet for us is called a brat or bland diet.

For those of you who have worked with me, you know I am all about food prep for the week, so I went a little over board this morning.

Low Carb Pizza Crust

I noticed that a lot of the (pre-made) cauliflower crust pizzas at the store are not as low carb as you might think due to the second ingredient being brown rice flour.
I saw this product at Sprout's today and was impressed by the macros and whole food ingredients. The whole crust is only 10 grams of net carbs.
Has any one tried this yet? I will give my honest feed back once I give it a try.
