Just a thought. You could always pick up a dehydrated base mix like the honest kitchen or sojos.
The honest kitchen is completely human grade diet. They have full diets and mixes you add your own meat and water to. Here's the ingredients to one of their base mixes:
All ingredients dehydrated: Sweet potatoes, peas, cabbage, organic coconut, apples, spinach, pumpkin, bananas, celery, organic kelp, organic honey, tricalcium phosphate, choline chloride, zinc amino acid chelate, vitamin D3 supplement, vitamin E supplement, potassium iodide, potassium chloride, iron amino
It's dehydrated so shelf stable, and dehydrating preserves nutrients better then the kibble making process or canning.
You could easily pick up some cheap meat while doing your regular grocery shopping. 3 packets of chicken gizzards and hearts, 1 pack of chicken liver, and 2 cans of mackerel, a dozen eggs, and maybe 1 pack of a cheap beef. And I'd grab some live culture yogurt too. Be about 15 bucks a week and takes up a small amount of space in the fridge. So not too bad even though you cant take advantage of bulk deals. Oh and a jar of coconut oil. Give a recreational bone or some fun chews like chicken feet a few times a week - happy healthy pups.
You'd be miles ahead nutrition wise then kibble and get a lot of the benefits of raw. Might be a good compromise until you are ready for full out raw.
