May 2011 gutload

During April, my primary gutload items have been: fresh green dandelion leaves, carrot, apple, yam (steamed), romaine, oranges and the last of my January dry gutload mix.

For May, I am still gonna be using a great deal of dandelion leaves, carrot, and I hope to have fresh young mustard greens as well, and of course there will be other good fruits and veg included as the month progresses. And while fresh fruit and veg is the primary gutload, I still use a dry gutload to round out the nutrients.

This is the May2011 recipe:

3 cups alfalfa (protein, vitamins including K)
1 cup powdered kelp (iodine, calcium, magnesium)
1/4 cup air dried, shredded dandelion leaves (calcium, vitamins)
1/4 cup sunflower seeds (B vitamins, folate, potasium, etc)
1/4 cup sesame seed (calcium, iron, copper, magnesium, maganese, selenium)
1/4 cup raw pumpkin and squash seeds (Protein, Vitamin K, Iron, Copper, Magnesium)
1/4 cup dried mixed cranberries and blueberries (sweetness, antioxidants)
1/4 cup of ground (dead and dry) garry oak and maple tree leaves (tanins, fibre)
2 sheets of roasted seaweed (as used for maki sushi)
5 tablespoons of hemp seed (Essential Fatty Acids, essential amino acids, protein, fibre)
5 tablespoons bee pollen
4 tablespoons spirulina
4 tablespoons of brewers yeast (B vitmains including folic acid, chromium, selenium)
4 tablespoons slivered raw almonds (potasium, b vitamins, vitamin E)
2 tablespoons organic dried coconut (yummy)
2 tablespoons millet (fiber, niacin, thiamin, riboflavin, lecithin, iron, magnesium)
2 teaspoons of poppy seeds (calcium)
1 teaspoon of ginger powder (Vitamin E, B6, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Selenium, and Manganese)

I use a coffee bean grinder to blend all of the above together into a fine meal. I use this dry meal primarily for roaches and crickets, but also mixed with wheat bran and oats as part of the bedding for superworms and mealworms.
