We feed Fromm Gold which doesn't appear to have the peas and lentils but it does have potatoes somewhere in the middle. I think the concern is more with grain free food missing an important nutrient. I add a little From 4star to Loki's food to keep him interested, and that little bit is grain free so I may switch to another one of their high quality specialty foods instead. I don't think sweet potatoes were mentioned either. They seem to be more nutritious than white potatoes.

I'm having to count my calories now and I KNOW yams have the most calories, then sweet potatoes. White potatoes have the least but then the other 2 are more nutritious.

It is almost no win isn't it. Go grain free to try to prevent cancer, and that is not good for them. Sir Moose does get a kibble for breakfast that is chicken, sweet potato and pumpkin mostly. Cook his supper and do use rice and sometimes barely in it. He hs liver disease so we have to monitor what he eats. I have the same problem. I am chronic anemic and I nee protein for that and for energy and muscle, but have to go easy on it due to kidneys. I could use some carbs and sugar for energy, but being diabetic, have to go very easy on carbs and use "fake" sugar. I just can't seem to winl\n
