nutritional parrot foodWhen I recently started to spend just a bit of time looking around and trying to find the right kinds of foods that I could feed to my pet parrot, I was really glad to be able to find a wide selection of different types of parrot food options out there. The food that I had been feeding my parrot had been discontinued, leaving me to search for something new to use.

I took a really long time for me to settle on any kind of food that I felt as good about. My bird needed to be able to have just the right kind of food so that he would be able to stay healthy all of the time. Getting him great food that would work wonderfully was so important for me, which is why I held out for nutritional parrot food that I knew my parrot would love.

With the new food that I can use with my parrot, I am able to keep my parrot feeling healthy all of the time. It is good to be able to give my parrot some occasional treats as well, but having great food to feed to him most of the time is something that is so important.

Healthy weeds in our garden

Some weeds make a great parrot and human food. Do you have dandelion in your yard? If you don’t spray your garden, dandelion make a great parrot food and toy. Why should we pull out such a nutritious and healthy plant, which the settlers valued so highly, that they brought it over from Europe? The Native Americans realized its qualities and integrated it fast in their diet and as medicine. Many people are not aware that they have such a great parrot food in their yards. They usually try to get rid of it. I am looking forward to early spring to be able to start feeding the leafs. Dandelion leafs contain many minerals and vitamins and are very blood cleansing. I ad the leafs  to my fresh parrot food, pureed, cooked and hang them on the side of the cages. Later on the birds love to play with and eat the flowers.

Cinnamon, yummy and a lethal killer for ecoli

My parrots love cinnamon. And many researches, done over the last 20 years, found it is a lethal killer of ecoli. It happens every so often that we get a warning about drinking water contamination with ecoli. By the time it reaches the customer, we might have consumed some of it. Or you hear that it is found in some food, which now has to be recalled. Knowing you (your Fids and kids) have had cinnamon on a regular base can keep your mind at peace, when it comes to ecoli.

I feed it several times a week in different foods for the parrot and me. I buy the ‘real’, the Ceylon cinnamon from Sri Lanka.

But that is not all. Cinnamon also has anti fungal, antibacterial, anti inflammatory and antiviral properties and lowers blood glucose and cholesterol.

something which is so yummy and has so many benefits should be in every bodies parrot food.

BTW it is one ingredient of the Tesoro Treat

Slippery Elm powder

The inner bark of the Slippery Elm is an official drug in the United States Pharmacopoeia.

In the old days it was widely known, but the Native Americans used it the most. They made a beverage from the ground-up tree bark that was soothing to an inflamed alimentary canal and also very nutritious. The Native Americans also used it as a healing salve. Until not too long ago, Slippery Elm was part of home-made baby foods and a common remedy for digestive disorders.

Today Slippery Elm is one of the most valuable remedies in the herbal pharmacy. The powder contains an abundance of tannins and mucilage, which have both an astringent and anti-inflammatory effect. It is soothing and healing to all parts it comes in contact with. All areas that it reaches are rejuvenated, coated, and protected from irritations such as inflammations and infections. When all other foods fail, Slippery Elm is well tolerated by the stomach and can reestablish harmony in inflamed intestines within hours to a day.

Slippery Elm does several things at the same time; absorbs impurities and toxins and helps them to pass harmlessly out of the body, while nourishing the whole body and assisting the activity of the adrenal glands.

I often ad a little to the parrot food to boost the nutritional value.

Sunshine for the eye and nutrition for the parrot body

Nasturtiums are easy to grow and their beautiful yellow and orange flowers bloom all summer long. But they are not only a joy for our eyes in our garden or pots. Their peppery taste is a Delight in Salads and for our birds. They give the fresh organic parrot food, we feed daily, color and a spicy bite the birds enjoy.Because nasturtiums are great climbers, they are wonderful to grow around outdoor aviaries. That way the birds can help themselves to a spicy nutritious parrot food whenever they feel like it.

Nasturtiums are native to Peru, where the Indians used them as cough remedy. Our modern medical research supports this. They also have stimulant, expectorant, antiscorbutic (anti-scurvy) properties. In the 16 century the Spaniards took seeds to Europe and soon after nasturtiums appeared in the first herbs books.

My favorite weed

Now here is another weed. The early settlers valued plantain so much, that they brought it over from Europe and introduced it into the US. I am not talking about the bananas, but the little weeds everybody tries to get rid of.

The plantain leafs are coming up here and I am glad to see this little treasures being back in my yard. At the moment the leafs are small and tender and are great in salads. Later, when they are a bit tougher they can be cooked in steam and prepared like spinach. I eat and feed only the small ones to the birds. The big leafs are a fun toy for parrots. All my birds like to tear them apart and try to separate the treats from the leaf. And later when the plantain gets the sticks with the seeds on them they are even more fun for the birds to take apart and eat. They are a real fun and nutritious parrot food.

Plantain is very high in beta-carotene, vitamin C and K, calcium and many minerals. Researches show that Plantain has cholesterol reducing property, helps for disorders of the kidneys, eases coughs and mucous membrane irritation associated with upper respiratory tract infections. I have used it in simmering a leaf for 15 minutes and putting it on a wound. The pain leaves immediately and it heals very fast.

I always like to make sure that I can do what I can to make sure that I am able to provide my bird with top quality food that he can eat on a regular basis. It can be difficult for me to make sure that my bird is given good quality food since I don’t have the money to spend on food all of the time. Still, getting food that is right for my bird is something that takes precedence for me.

Most of what my bird eats is some normal seed that is very good for him on the whole. I only buy organic bird seed because I want to make sure that I am able to keep my bird as healthy as possible. Of course, picking out other items for him to eat like fruits and vegetables is also really important. For this reason, I have spent a lot of time looking for organic fruits my bird likes.

By providing my bird with a diet that is diverse, I am able to make sure that he can stay a lot healthier. I love to be able to find some different kinds of items that I can use whenever I feed my bird. Getting him just the right kinds of foods is something that is absolutely essential to me.
