#InspiredbyCrafted ~ Hill’s® Ideal Balance™ Crafted™ ~ Crafted’s Carefully Selected Creation Process



This post is sponsored by Hill’s. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about Hill’s® Ideal Balance™ Crafted™, but Green and Glassie only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Inc. is not responsible for the content of this article.  


When I was asked to review Hills' Ideal Balance Crafted  I started to think about how they are a artist in making quality dog food. They take quality ingredients and slow cook it in small batches to be the best possible food it can be. 
Heck that is what I do with my glass art. I take recycled glass (glass that has already proven itself strong), I heat my glass art for at least 12 hours at 1400 degrees melting the glass into my unique Wishing Stars. Each of my projects I make with love and caring ensuring that the final piece is of the highest quality. 

Making glass art is who I am - Making quality pet products is who Hills' is!
We are both artist!

I am also a No Chemical ~ No Preservative nut! I want natural ingredients in everything I eat and use. Like me Hill's also understands the importance of using natural ingredients with no preservatives or chemicals. 

We only eat natural so there is no way I am giving Diesel chemicals and preservatives.  They use the same ingredients I use to make healthy meals for my hubby and I. 
Quality proteins of trout, salmon, roasted beef and chicken teamed up with ancient grains including, quinoa, buckwheat and vegetables like sweet potatoes, barley and peas.
They oven roast their dry dog kibbles to ensure a delicious and nutritious dog food. The slower, small batch process ensures quality and consistency that  deliver perfectly balance nutrition. Diesel is our baby ~ we want the best for him.

Are you wondering what does Small Batch mean? 
*For Hills' small batch means that Ideal Balance Crafted is made just the way you would — one very special batch at a time. Their experienced, dedicated master bakers create unique recipes in small batches using high quality meats, wholesome vegetables and ancient grains.  Hills' way of making the best dog food. 
*For DeDa Studios small batch means I make 6 stars at a time. Each one is designed to be unique and original the best it can be. I always use scrap recycled glass - my way of giving back to our green earth.
