Natures Recipe: Pure essentials

Hi all!
I am looking to possibly switch Stella's food around from Fromm. We will be adding a 2nd puppy in June (eek!!) and are looking for some different options. I found the Natures Recipe: Pure essentials and like the ingredients and what I am reading so far! BUT, I am inexperienced with what exactly to look for for Stella (1.5 years old) and Ryker (new GSD puppy) or if I should just stick with Fromm! So I thought I would ask the experts!

Here is the links to the Nutrition Info:

Large Breed:
Nature?s Recipe® | Pure Essentials? | Large Breed Salmon & Brown Rice Recipe

Puppy:
Nature?s Recipe® | Pure Essentials? | Puppy Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe

or maybe I should go with a grain free option! So many choices!!

Edit: I am also considering the Simply Nourish brand

Thanks in advanced

I would stick with Fromm. It's the highest quality of the three IMO.

Thanks for the input!

My only issue is my husband joined the Navy and we will be moving soon. I am wanting something easy to find everywhere. I don't think that Fromm can be found everywhere without paying an arm and a leg for shipping and what not. I agree that it is great quality and she does well on it but, I am curious what everyone thinks of these other brands. Any others have any input?

The Nature's Recipe and Simply Nourish are still both decent foods. Of those two, I would go with Simply Nourish. It is one of Petsmart's proprietary brands and as such, it goes through extra quality screenings and has some higher quality ingredients IMO.

As far as availability for Fromm, there are some good places you can do an online order.
Amazon seems to have it with free shipping on the larger bags: http://www.amazon.com/Fromm-Gold-Large-Breed-Puppy/dp/B000WFKTZ4/ref=sr_1_1?s=pet-supplies&ie=UTF8&qid=1397601684&sr=1-1&keywords=fromm+large+breed+puppyAnd Chewy ships orders over $49 free and has an autoship method: Fromm Gold Holistic Large Breed Puppy Dry Dog Food
