You know instead of offering animal protein, I try to offer more plant protein. For examples, I give a lot of grated parsnips and well cut beans that are still in the edible pods. Parsnips especially are high in protein and possibly the most nutritious vegetable in the world. It also has a lot of fiber, which is good for the digestive tract, and carbohydrate for energy. Plus it is most commonly available in the supermarkets, especially in Europe. Asparagus is also good, but is more expensive and have more calcium oxalate. You can also buy some of those alfalfa tea bag at the health food stores, which only contain the leaves. The leaves is what you want. Alfalfa has more plant protein than any other plants. That's why they feed them to horses.
