((PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BEFORE MAKING Recipe created by Dahlia_2020 ... you are welcome to contact me with any questions. Look me up in the membership database and shoot me off a PM)) Chinese Cabbage is called Bok Choy in grocery stores. 110g of baby carrots translates to one cup, shredded. Baby carrots are higher in calcium, so do not use regular carrots. The common cabbage is just good old fashioned regular green cabbage. The measurements of all the ingredients is in cups. When it comes to the common cabbage, its a little confusing because at first glance you would think it was for two measurement of half a cup. It is not. It is for four servings of half a cup because they only had 0.5 cup units listed. The total amount of common cabbage in this recipe is exactly TWO whole cups. If you are new to glider nutrition, please don't make the mistake of looking at any of my recipes and thinking you can just throw a pinch of each ingredient together and create something of the same nutritional value for your glider. There is a reason why there are more of some ingredients, and less of others, and that's because a glider's meal needs to be balanced with twice the level of useable calcium to the level of phosphorous. My recipe batches are large, because I feed multiple gliders and all of my veggie relishes need to be blended quite literally to the consistency of baby food before my gliders will eat everything. Blending drastically condenses the volume of these recipes. What may start off as 13 or 14 cups, will be 8 or 9 by the time I'm done. But if you do not wish to make such large batches, then it is quite easy to just look at any of the recipes and only use half of each ingredient amount to create a batch half the size. I feed HPW, and I put together my recipes as a way of creating a proper Ca:Ph (Calcium to Phosphorous) ratio of 2:1, or twice the amount of calcium to phosphorous. This is critical for gliders, particularly if they are on the HPW formula. I serve their dinner in three parts every night. The HPW itself, the fruit portion, and the veggie portion. I have seven fruit cocktail recipes currently listed. All of them are the proper ratio. I also have five veggie relish recipes listed as well. I believe in a variety for my gliders, so even though I enjoy the convenience of preparing these recipes in bulk and freezing them in individual portions, I do provide them with a nightly rotation, which is why these recipes work well with each other. Each one brings something different nutritionally to the table, yet all are the proper Ca:Ph ratio. Even if you are not feeding HPW, my recipes would work well for anyone wanting to provide their gliders with some balanced variety. But keep in mind, gliders need BOTH fruit AND veggies . You can't just provide them with one and think they are getting everything they need, just because its Ca:Ph ratio is correct. So if you use my recipes, then you need to select at LEAST one from each category. Gliders also need a protein source (which is what HPW helps provide) so keep that in mind as well. First thing you may notice about my veggie relishes, is that they contain yogurt and orange juice. The reason for this is my gliders LOVE yogurt. It sweetens the recipe, makes them more prone to eat it all, and yogurt does contain additional protein and other valued nutritional elements. But it is also high in phosphorous. The orange juice is included as a way of not only dealing with that, but also combating the high level of phosphorous in some of the veggies that may have excellent nutritional value, but have little calcium and a very high level of phosphorous. Peas would be an example of this. The thing you have to understand about the orange juice however, is that is HAS to be calcium fortified with vitamin D3. You CANNOT use regular orange juice, which has very little calcium to it. And although oranges are good for gliders, they also contain citric acid, which can cause diarrhea in gliders if they eat too much. Oranges and orange juice must be provided in small moderation. It is for this reason that none of my fruit recipes contain oranges or other citrus fruits. The amount of orange juice that I have in my veggie relishes is not a problem, because it only translates to just a few drops a night. As far as preparation of this recipe is concerned, I have to blend it to the consistency of baby food to get my guys to eat it. You may not have this problem. The Bok Choy is diced up, then measured, as is the celery. The baby carrots are shredded first, then measured. The common cabbage is pulled apart, either lightly steamed or blanched, and measured. Then further diced up. The cauliflower florets can be either served raw or lightly blanched, measured first, then further diced. Everything gets mixed up well. I then blend (again, you may not have to blend. Your guys may be fine with it diced) and measure out a one tablespoon per glider serving into ice cube trays and freeze... I then pop the cubes out (this is made easier if you run hot water over the back of the trays for just a few seconds to help the food cubes to turn loose) and store them in freezer safe containers or freezer bags. Each of my gliders get a one tablespoon serving of one of the veggie relishes and one tablespoon serving of one of the fruit cocktails (which I do NOT have to blend) along with a teaspoon and a half of HPW.
