Have you guys heard about how eating dates throughout your pregnancy is linked to shorter/easy labor?!?! Who knows if it's true, BUT why not give it a shot?!
I'm about about 2 weeks out from my due date, and also planning a homebirth, so I'm all about doing things that might help my labor go as smoothly as possible. I've been eating about 6 dates everyday for the past week or so, but that can get kind of boring. While looking for a more interesting way to get in my daily allotment of dates, I came upon this DELISH smoothie!
So here is what went in my date pregnancy smoothie!:
- 7 dates
- A handful of almonds
- About a cup of almond milk
- About a cup of ice
- 1 banana
Blend it up and enjoy! It's so sweet, creamy, and very yummy.
What are some pregnancy foods/treats that you enjoyed while pregnant? Have you tried the date trick, and did it work for you?
