Have you found yourself taking up baking during the quarantine period? Do you also own a pet? Well, this article is for you! 

Your pets may not get to reap the benefits of your increased baking habits, but you can change that by treating them to a cake all to themselves! Our guilt-free grain-free recipes are sure to make them happy.

Why grain-free? Grain-fee food can be easier to digest. Good grain-free foods are lower in carbohydrates and higher in protein and fat. They contain alternative carbohydrates such as potatoes and peas rather than grains like wheat and barley.  More information on when and for whom we recommend the grain-free diet - including what the myths and the facts are on our instagram account @hussesg.
