1. Stuffed Sweet Potato Skin Salad 

Ingredients 

  • Acorn squash
  • Sweet potato
  • Green beans
  • Blueberries
  • Peeled apples
  • Collard greens
  • Calcium Supplement

Directions

  1. Boil the sweet potato and scoop the inside to create a hole to stuff greens and veggies. 
  2. Thinly chop the fruits and veggies and add the scooped sweet potato. Mix it with moistened bearded dragon food.

2. Nutritious Slurry for Bearded Dragons with Health issues

A bearded dragon slurry consists of assorted greens, veggies, fruits, supplements, and/ or insect feeders all blended together into a liquid consistency.

It’s very useful for beardies that aren’t eating right (or at all) due to health issues.

Ingredients 

  • Mustard greens
  • Collard greens
  • Strawberries
  • Cooked squash
  • 20-30 medium-sized phoenix worms
  • Bee pollen
  • Multivitamins
  • Water

Directions 

  1. Cut up all your greens, veggies, and strawberry.  
  2. Cook the squash. 
  3. Put everything in a jug. 
  4. Thrown in 20-30 medium-sized phoenix worms. 
  5. Add a tiny amount of bee pollen, multivitamin. 
  6. Finally, add ¼ cup of water.  
  7. Grind the salad just enough that your mixture stays thick and no clumps are left. 
  8. Take a 3 ml syringe and fill it with the slurry. 
  9. Feed the slurry to your bearded dragon from the syringe.

You can customize the slurry recipe based on your bearded dragon’s age.

If he is still young add more feeders to meet the protein requirement. If he’s an adult make the slurry more plant-based!  

The slurry is a great way to feed bearded dragons that are very picky with their food.

Syringe feeding should never be the first go-to if your bearded dragon stops eating, though. Consult your vet and check as there might be an underlying health issue.

Ingredients 

  • Swiss chard
  • Carrots
  • Dried flowers
  • Dried mealworms
  • Bee pollen
  • Small hornworms
  • Medium-sized crickets
  • Calcium powder. 

Directions 

  1. Dice up the leafy greens and veggies into bite size pieces. 
  2. Add dried mealworms and dried flowers. 
  3. Sprinkle small-sized 1-2 hornworms and medium-sized 5-10 crickets. 
  4. Nicely coat with calcium powder supplement and add a little bit of bee pollen.
