    Egg shells- tasty treat or crunchy killer?

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    So I brought some hard boiled eggs to work for lunch... I did not peel them right after making (I know) and I got sick of fighting them so I just ate the shells. Much to my surprise, they were freaking awesome!!

    Anything wrong with this? My thinking was the boiling water would kill any bad things on the shell.

    Holy balls, stop reading this and go to the ER right this second! Don't drive yourself; call an ambulance!

    Nah, you're fine.

    Are your testamentary documents up to date and properly notarized?

    Just kidding. You ate the shells? You'll be fine. But it's still weird.

    Actually it is a great calcium source. It is normal to use ground eggshells in dog food. I use 1/2 tsp of ground eggshell per Lb of food. For me I think I will find tastier sources though. Plus I am allergic to eggs.
    Starting Primal June 2012 at 148.5lbs, goal weight in November 2012.
    Now 95lbs and holding.
    Primal, minus eggs, dairy and a myriad of other allergens.

    OMG, I concur! Gross.. If I rip the egg apart (like theres less than 60% left) I'll just call it a wash and toss it in the garbage but I get REALLY angry..
