General comment: I know that although most vegans are so because of ethical reasons, I think that a large proportion are also in the game because they want to be healthier, so I am a bit surprised to see here listed items that by all standards are not exactly healthy

Apart from oats, I just have to check the ingredients that make up most of the above and I might even consider not letting my dogs eat it.

I am sorry, unless you freeze them, you might end up with bug infestations (moths and other grain lovers), I learned the hard way.

???????are you serious?
man on bike wrote:Extra virgin olive oil
Don't let the hype fool you, use in moderation
man on bike wrote:Cooking oil
Cooking oil is mostly soy or canola(rapeseed) oil 2 (very) cheaply made barely edible substances unworthy of someone striving to better his/her health. Use intead the oil from ground saseme seeds (Tahini) or at most olive oil.
man on bike wrote:Flax seed oil
I don't think that is a good idea, the ritual of grinding as needed the flax seeds is a better alternative
man on bike wrote:Peanut butter
Raw peanuts are always healthier but I can't argue with the tasty roasted and ground treat. Just make sure that it does not contain additional oil (hydrogenated) and sugar.

Are you missing the B vitamins from all the other foods?
