I've done ground beef and liver in the frying pan, and boiled chicken breast. Mostly though, I just fed canned dog food, so much simpler!

Sorry I forgot to get back to you on this! Thanks for your reply. So do you mix veg in with the dog food or just get one with veg in it? Also do you add calcium to dog food? I tend to mix dog food into the big batches I do but to just have straight forward dog food for him would save me hours.

Sometimes I get dog food with veggies in it. Sometimes I also add my own veggies or fruit to that, sometimes I don't. Sometimes I get the dog food with just meat and add greens or veggies to that.
I almost always mix in calcium and D3, sometimes a multivitamin too.

I premake batches of my skinks food. I rotate protein sources (dog food, snails, ground turkey-raw I don't cook mine, chicken hearts and gizzards-again raw, egg etc). Then I mix in dark leafy greens (collard, mustard, turnip, dandelion, etc), squash (butternut, acorn, yellow), carrot, green beans, cactus pads, zucchini, sometimes pepper. Finally mix in a fruit source. I always do 50% protein, 40% veggies, and 10% fruit source. I food processor all my veggies and fruits and protein. Once all mixed together I place in ice cube trays and then freeze. I take one cube size per skink. As for the dog food, I use a well balanced diet. Most do have veggies in them also. I also know some people just feed a well balanced dog food just by itself. Hope that helps!
