Eggshells: They're not just for throwing away after making breakfast anymore! Some of you may know that my family has adopted a bunch of chicks and are overjoyed at the thought of how many eggs we will soon have. As I was doing some research on egg recipes, I can across this wonderful link!
Here are some clever ways to reuse Eggshells (check the link for more):
- Toss them in your coffee. Hate the taste of bitter coffee? Boil egg shells and place them in your coffee to steep. They'll kill some of the bitter flavors.
- Drink them. Bake the shells and then grind them into a fine powder. Toss the powder into any beverage to give yourself a great calcium boost.
- Start seedlings. Plant a seed in an egg shell, then plant the seedling and shell directly into the ground. The egg shell will compost and give a calcium boost to the soil around it.
- Make chalk. Yes, ground-up shells are also a key ingredient in a super-cheap recipe for DIY chalk.
