DIY Food for Thought

Hey everyone this is my first post since joining. I would like to first thank the Planted Tank community with it's vast array of information that has helped me a lot ever since I set up my first planted tank.
I'm experimenting making my own fish food consisting for the most part vegetables and fruits (no meat). I was wondering if raw eggs would be an issue if I was to blend it together with the other ingredients and than dehydrated and/or freeze it. Or should I hard boil it first or it's just simply a bad idea.

Thanks again.

I used egg in my DIY food before, just the egg white and not the yolk due to the high fat.
After everything was mixed together, I kept it in the freezer

Would the yolk cause fish or shrimp problems if I do mix it in?

Didn't need anymore fat in the food :P

That high calorie diet lol
All right than, I'll work up a recipe and post ingredients and end results when I think I'm successful with it.
Thanks for the help!
