I can JUST IMAGINE a black labrador sitting there watching the owner open up a box of dog biscuits. The owner lifts one to her mouth. Suddenly, the Lab's ears perk up (you know you gotta' love those Labby Ears!) and his jaw drops to the floor.

Default Been thinking the same thing

Response to some of the issues that people have with this idea:

1. This doesn't need to replace all other eating. But most people will admit that there are times that they just want a quick, nutritious, inexpensive meal.

2. Even if variety is a goal, you could easily do that in the recipe. I mean if there were a company making it they could make it have way more variety than any individual could. They could use 16 different kinds of potatoes, etc.

3. Now, that's IF this is what is healthiest. The problem that I actually found when talking to people about doing this was that there is no consensus on what the healthiest diet. "Nutritionists" are somewhere around acupuncturists in the spectrum of scientists. There's fad after fad. From what I can tell there are more "no" rules: low salt, low cholesterol, low trans-fats, low calories.

Anyways, I would love it if a bunch of scientists could get together and make something like this. If I were going to do it I would start with the Food Pyramid. Worry about manufacturing and taste, and not so much nutrition, although nutrition is the only thing that could probably sell this (sadly) unpopular idea.

I found this because I was looking for dog food for people for similar reasons. I'm thinking protien bars and shakes, and fiber bars, and a good mutivitamin should do it. 3 slimfasts, 2 specialK bars, and 2 fiber one bars have 1200 calories, 54 grams of protien, and 70% of daily fiber requirement. Is anything wrong with this? My dog is very happy and healthy and has a fabulous coat. It must be possible to get an ultimate human nutrition bar or to and be as healthy as a dog. Otherwise nutrition is sooo complicated and time consuming, and those bars and shakes taste really good. Am I crazy?
