My Lovely Raw Pet Rats!

We have 3 lovely female rats named Coco, Suma and Poppy. We feed them raw foods as they are the best foods nutritionally for all animals on the planet.

Each day I set out a raw banquet for them and they are healthy, energetic and have silky fur.
Occasionally, we give them a little box of wheatgrass to dig in the mud for the wheatberries. They also like to chew the grass.

Flat Bread

1 cup buckwheaties
1 cup flax
1 cup sesame seeds
1 tsp carraway seeds
dash sea salt
1 tablespoon olive oil

Grind buchwheaties, sesame seeds and flax into a course flour. Transfer to a bowl, add salt and oil, mix. Stir in carraway seeds. Add enough water to make a dough. Divide mixture into 8 pieces. Take each piece and roll out into a flat round. Place on dehydrator tray and dry until firm but still bread-like. ( I personally dry at 135 for 30 minutes, then turn it over and dry @105 for another 30 minutes )Serve with fresh hummus and salad topping or any soup.
