Peanut Omelet with Fruit Salad Recipe

Disclaimer:

Eggs are a high cholesterol food for Parrots. They should only eat eggs once every 21 days. African Grey parrots should never eat eggs. Dairy is not digestible by Parrots. We occasionally sprinkle a little cheese on top and feed to our new rescues that are not used to eating cooked food. You can leave the cheese out on all these recipes. 1 serving = 1 Parrot

Fruit salad preparation

We recommend all organic fruits and veggies if possible

  • Start by cutting two organic apples in half, and core out the seeds. Then dice them into 1/4 inch pieces, and place them at the bottom of a large bowl
  • Then dice two organic oranges, slice off the peel, and dice them into 1/2 inch pieces. Add them into the bowl with the apples
  • Then take two organic bananas, peel and slice them into ¼ inch pieces
  • Then use ¼ cup of organic seedless grapes (per 2 cups of fruit salad) and rinse well. *(If you have small parrots, you may wish to cut the grapes in half)
  • Then add the grapes into the salad bowl
  • Then take ½ cup organic blueberries, rinse well and add to salad bowl. Take one can of peach chunks, and strain the juice out with a strainer. Then add them to the salad. Mix well and set aside

Serving suggestions

  • All parrots love it when you garnish their meals with sliced almonds or unshelled walnuts, If possible, sprinkle shelled peanuts over the dish as an extra garnish, and also to add more interest to make the parrot forage through their bowl of goodies
  • Serve 1 Tbsp. of your warmveggie mix on one side of the bowl.
  • Then 1 Tbsp. of this specialty dish on the other side of your bowl.
  • Then add 2 Tbsp. of fruit salad mix, making sure that you’re offering at least three pieces of each item
  • Soft billed parrots and especially cockatoos, love organic oatmeal. You may wish to make some organic oatmeal, Then after the oatmeal has cooled down, add in a couple of slices of peaches, or any fresh fruit on top of the oatmeal.
  • Serve your specialty dish warm veggie mix  on one side of the bowl, and on the other side of your bowl, add your fruit salad mix, making sure that you’re offering at least three pieces of each item
  • Finally, on the side put 2 Tbsp. of warm mixed vegetables to your specialty dish. Garnish it well for foraging

Serving time suggestions

Parrots are always hungriest in the morning hours. It is best to serve this to them in the morning. If you do decide to feed them in the evening hours, it’s recommended to poke a dishes out of their cages within one hour after they wake up in the morning, so they’re not eating any spoiled food
