I was making a shake (I usually go with some raw eggs, protein powder, pure cocoa, and cinnamon) and half my egg shell fell in. Instead of digging it out of the mess I left it in and blended it up. It blended well, aside from a little bit of grit at the bottom of the shake.
I imagine that the shells are a good source of calcium. Anyone else tried this? Any benefit to eating the shells? If so any recommendations on how much to consume?
I throw whole raw eggs in my shakes. I crack open the egg over my empty blender bowl and smell the egg. If the egg has no smell then it doesn't contain salmonella or other bad bacteria. So if I can't smell anything, I add the rest of my ingredients for my shake. (That is usually soaked raw almonds, flax seed oil, coconut oil and water. Adding black strap molasses adds a lot of additional minerals but also some sugar which is not a good food combination with protein.) Then I blend everything in a powerful blender (Vitamix). One egg shell contains about my daily requirements for calcium. I have notices that my finger nails have become much stronger since I have been doing this.
