    Egg shells- tasty treat or crunchy killer?

    Shop Now
    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.
    Started Primal June 2012 at 148.5lbs, and 5' 1", reached goal weight in 5 months.
    Lowest weight 93lbs - too thin. Now stable at around 100lbs much better weight for me at my age.
    Primal, minus eggs, dairy and a myriad of other allergens.

    How exactly are they 'freakin awesome'? The taste, the crunch...?
    Aren't they sharp, and uncomfortable to swallow?

    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..
