One more clue for you.
I'm sure I didn't fool you. You guessed it was our dog and cat food, right? For all the unconditional love our pets bring to us, we owe it to them to feed them and nourish them with REAL FOOD. I don't know about you, but I love my pets and want them to live healthy long lives. Their health, just like ours, is affected by the quality of their diet. Look at the principles behind how their food is created:
- Fresh and Regional Ingredients
- Meat and Protein Rich
- Carbohydrate Limited
- No Plant Oils
- Fruits and Vegetables
- Health-promoting Botanicals
- Mineral Balanced
Imagine what would happen to our health, if we applied these same principles to how we feed humans.
The brand is Orijen.
