Polly Pizzas

1 container of pizza dough
1/2 cup shredded pizza cheese
1/4 cup shredded carrots
1/4 cup shredded green peppers
1/4 cup spaghetti sauce (low salt)

Preheat oven to 400ºF.

Using a cookie cutter, cut small cookie shapes out of the dough. Cover with sauce, cheese, and veggies. Cook until the cheese is melted (around 5 minutes). sServe warm, not hot!

Pamela Clark’s African Grey Pilaf
Submitted by Kris Porter

Quinoa and sesame seeds are both sources of calcium. Brazil nuts are high in selenium. Yams and dark green leafy vegetables provide valuable Vitamin A.

1/2 cup quinoa (pronounced keen-wa)
1 cup water

Bring water to a boil and add quinoa. After mixture has come to a boil again, cover and turn heat to medium-low. Cook for five minutes; then add:

1 cup grated yams, sweet potatoes or carrots

Cover again and cook for another 10 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Turn into a bowl and mix in the following ingredients:

1/2 cup frozen corn
1/2 cup grated broccoli or other finely chopped dark green leafy vegetable
1/4 cup grated or finely chopped Brazil nuts
1/4 cup unhulled sesame seed
1/4 cup canary seed mix (optional)
1/4 cup Abba Green 92 nestling food (optional ingredient – you can also substitute ¼ cup of Harrison’s mash or fine pellets).
2 teaspoons Udo’s Oil Blend or other oil blend high in EFAs such as Red Palm oil

Note: EFAs in the blend are compromised at temps above 110 degrees. I freeze and re-heat this pilaf so I omit the oil blend in the recipe and just add a drop or two to each bowl before serving.

Serve warm (no hotter than 110 degrees) or at room temperature. Feel free to experiment with this recipe. You can use almost any combination of fruits and vegetables. Although developed to provide the nutrients necessary for good health in African Grey parrots, we find that most parrots love this mixture.

 
Vegetable Egg Pancake
By Kris Porter


1 Egg
2 Tablespoons chopped greens (kale, mustard, turnip or collard)
1 Tablespoon grated carrot
Dash of cayenne pepper
Red Palm Oil or Coconut Oil

Beat the eggs in a bowl then add the vegetables and cayenne pepper, mixing well

Heat oil in frying pan (Do not use Teflon)

Pour in egg mixture and cook over medium heat until the bottom of the pancake is set and browned

Turn and cook until browned on the other side

Remove to a plate, cool to room temperature and cut into bite size pieces

Note: You can buy frozen chopped greens and have them on hand to use in this recipe, just thaw them first before adding to egg mixture. Many health food stores (such as Natural Pantry here in Anchorage) carry Red Palm Oil.

I cook extra of this recipe and eat it myself for breakfast, it is pretty tasty.
