    Eggs

    I've always thought of eggs as the World's most perfect food. Really, not as a cliche, or as a commercial, but as the most compact, nutrient dense form of food on this planet.
    I also have always known about the calcium in the eggshells... so, why didn't I think of this???
    This makes the egg even MORE awsome and "perfect"!

    Many of my clients are allergic to dairy when we first start working together. This can make getting regular intake of calcium difficult, so my usual recommendations are bone broth and/or eggshell calcium. Why not just a calcium supplement? Because there is a much cheaper, more nutrient dense version you can make at home!
    Eggshell Calcium Recipe:1) Save a few dozen used eggshells.
    2) Cook them at 300 degrees for about 20-25 minutes to dry them out.
    3) Let cool for 30-60 minutes.
    4) Blend in a coffee grinder or high speed blender (like Vita-mix ) until you get a very fine powdered consistency (very important!)
    5) Consume about 1/8-1/4* tsp with a little water or juice 1-3x per day or as needed to meet your individual health needs. 1tsp eggshell calcium equals about 800 mg calcium.






    I just saw this and had to share it.

    It is really for people who are lactose intolerant, I suppose, but why shouldn't we use the shells when they are "there" and can provide nutrients to our bodies? Right?

    I crush a bunch of mine every month to feed my plants too, so this is just something else I'm going to save my shells for .
