Hearty Black Bean Bowl

My dog, Ginger, absolutely loves this meal. Since I started feeding her a complete vegan diet, she is more excited about eating than ever before! She is still a bundle of energy, and she has had a significant improvement in digestion. This diet is relatively new, so I will keep y’all posted on any other changes I notice in her.
