Weight loss diets almost always include eggs for their protein and nutritious vitamins and minerals. Specifically, vitamins A, B12, calcium, zinc, and small traces of just about everything. They are a great choice compared to the calorie load, and that’s why so many people include them in their meals.
But one woman includes the part that many of us toss in the trash: the shells!
“That’s crazy. Why would I want to keep an egg shell?” You probably asked in your head just now.
An eggshell is about 90% calcium. This fact has people grinding up their eggshells and adding the powder to shakes and smoothies to satisfy their daily calcium needs!
Boil the shells in water for 10 minutes to kill any bacteria or pathogens that might be on the shells. It may be overkill, but many people bake the shells at 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes, just to make sure.
Add the shells into a blender and grind them up into a fine powder! By using this method, she claims that 1/2 teaspoon is about 400 mg of calcium carbonate, roughly estimated.
She recommends to store the powder in an air-tight container and as always, to ask your physician before attempting to supplement your diet without consultation.
Will you be grinding up your eggshells into a powerful powder, or will you just stick with your whole milk?
