Quick and Easy Kashi Meal for Your Parrots

Need a quick healthy meal for the birds? Try this one. It will feed all 17 of my birds a nice little meal.

What you need:

  • Kashi Pilaf in the 8.5 oz packet- This has 7 different grains in it Including:OATS, LONG GRAIN BROWN RICE, RYE, HARD RED WINTER WHEAT, TRITICALE, BUCKWHEAT, BARLEY, SESAME SEEDS
  • 4 oz. jar of organic baby food. I used sweet potato.
  • Herbs- I used 3 teaspoons from my friend Marilu Anderson the Avian Goddess.
  • Veggies if you have them. I try to keep organic, no salt added frozen veggies around. Peas and beans too!
In a glass bowl add the Kashi, 2 tablespoons of water and the baby food. Microwave for a minute and a half. Stir well. Add 3 teaspoons of herbs. Stir well and refrigerate.After 30 minutes or so the liquid will be absorbed and the meal ready to serve.

I gave this to the kids cold and got a tails up from everyone. Everyone gets a heaping teaspoon. More for the bigger birds depending on what is left over the first time around.

Serve as your birds like it!
