The Honest Kitchen Revel Review

Dogs, known as mans best friend. For most of us, our dogs are family. I know Nyla is a very important part of our family. I thought I was keeping Nyla as healthy as possible by feeding her Purina One Venison and Turkey, and don't get me wrong, Purina One is great food. But we got to try something alot healthier.

 Nyla received a 2 lb box of Revel ($15.99) from The Honest Kitchen. Revel is whole grain chicken dog food, well technically it's so great, it is human grade!

Revel, just like the other dog foods from The Honest Kitchen, comes in a ground up state. When I seen it, I thought to myself, "How is this supposed to make a good bit of food?" Well, for Nyla, I thought I was going to use this as her meal every other day. But, even though I have always thought she's the pickiest dog in the world, she was jumping around the kitchen counter, where I was making it, and as soon as I put her bowl down she was going to town!

For Nyla, because she eats several times a day, she gets what is recommended for her, although it doesn't satisfy her for the entire day, this is what I limit her to. For her weight (medium, 31-50 lbs), it is suggested she get 1-2 cups a day, which I decided on one. Takes 1 1/2-3 cups of water to that 1-2 cups dry food. I used 1 cup dry food and 1 1/2 cups water. It makes it a consistency she loves.

(I only have one actual measuring cup, so this is my make shift one for Nyla)

I promise you, when you see your picky dog goes nuts over something new, you immediately know this has to be the Holy Grail of dog food. Normally, she will let something new sit awhile before she tries it, or will knock the food around playing with it. But I got this instead, right away.

She was looking at me like, "Mom, I'm almost done, does that mean I get seconds!?"

Seriously though, why wouldn't a dog go running to it?

This is what gets squeezed into a 2 pound box of Revel:
  • 3 pounds of free range chicken
  • 1.5 scoops of barley
  • half of a banana
  • 2 3/4 carrots
  • 1 scoop of oats
  • 2 3/4 celery stalks
  • 1 cup of fresh peas
  • 1.5 bunch of parsley 
 I love that she is happy with such a healthy alternative to what she could be eating otherwise. I can clearly see how much she loves Revel, and honestly when you open the bag, it kind of smells like homemade chicken stew in the works.

If your dog is up to try The Honest Kitchen, but they have a sensitivity to wheat, you should probably try Force. It is a chicken recipe like Revel, but is free of wheat and gluten for those with sensitivities. 

I seriously have nothing bad to say about The Honest Kitchen. This was an amazing experiment for me, to see how well Nyla would actually take to an all natural, healthier, organic dog food. Because, honestly, I didn't think she would even touch it. Now, I have discovered though, that she will have to eat it as she wants it because when I tried to give her THK for breakfast, then Purina for dinner, she would not dare touch it. So, I am going to have to do a little mixing together to get her partial to it again!

Even if you have cats, you can try The Honest Kitchen, too. Just go over to their site, toggle over shop now, and select cats. They have cat food and cat treats! (Yay, Happy Kitty!) Please everyone just take the time to try it, I promise it is worth every dime (and it makes up for the money when you have a healthier dog or cat!).

I decided to do a little preference test between The Honest Kitchen and Purina, and this is what she chose. (Revel is in the white bowl, Purina next to it)

**Disclaimer: I was sent one 2 lb box of Revel for review purposes only. This post contains only my own opinions, and my 100% honest opinion of this product. I was only compensated with the product received (Revel) but was not in any other way.
