What do you do with your egg shells?

by 18619 · August 26, 2011 at 03:05 PM

Eat them? Compost them? Throw them away?

I would appreciate knowing why you make that decision too.

Boil them, dry them and then grind them and put them in my french press while I'm brewing coffee. Calcium is hard to come by while on Paleo!

I grind them and mix with lemon juice to make calcium citrate and then take 1/4 tsp a day. Store in refrigerator. I do this to make the calcium more available for absorption, its also dependent on stomach acidity so eat this when stomach acid is highest earlier in the day.

Feed them to my turtle.

I'm going to try eating them myself.

For paleo gardeners: Crush them into small pieces and sprinkle around the base of plants that get ravished by slugs and snails. Coffee grounds also do the same.

Ha, I peel the membrane away, dry them, crush them, and feed them in small doses to my raw-fed pride of kitties that don't like to eat bone as often as they should :-) I didn't even consider using them for myself! I'm curious to know what others do with them as well

My mom saves them for putting in her garden. But don't use your blender to chop them up, they will destroy the plastic part of your blender giving it a "foggy" look.

I eat them like crackers, in my quest to become the ossified man.

Dry and grind it up and put about 1 tsp. in my cats homemade raw food since they are to lazy to eat bones.

I let them dry, grind to a fine powder in the vita-mix, and mix in with my chickens' food instead of oyster shells. It has to be really finely ground so they don't recognize it as their own egg shellls...otherwise, they may start eating their eggs.
