Anti-Arthritis Dog Stew

“I believe acupuncture is the number one method for arthritis. Number two is homeopathy. … Years ago I learned about a special arthritis diet…many animals improve on this diet alone.”A. Greig Howie, DVM

The Antiarthritis Diet
2 cups brown rice
2 cups barley (pearls)
1 cup lentils
2 cups carrots
1 cup celery
1/2 cup parsley
2 cups spinach
2 cups lamb or beef hearts
2 garlic cloves
8 to 12 cups water

Combine ingredients in a large pot. Bring to a boil and then simmer covered for 1 1/4 hours. Stir every fifteen minutes. Add more water as needed.

Apart from that, it looks tasty, healthy and cheap. For humans I'd add spice, turmeric, ginger and cumin.

Slightly ambiguous title. Care2 recommends stewing dogs?

I've used this recipe with and without the meat, and my dogs have loved it. I've even eaten it myself, though it's a bit bland for human tastes!
