Making dates taste better

autumm | Jun 28, 201507:14 PM     20

I'm 38 weeks pregnant, and I've read some info where consuming more dates can help speed up the labor and delivery process, which sounds like an excellent idea at this time.

However, I am not a fan of dates. I've been trying to eat them plain/sliced grazing on them throughout the day, and it's been tough. Are there any favored ways to make them a little more tasty?

I have a nut-free home, and I'm not currently a fan of fish, mushrooms, olives or big flavored cheeses. I would like to keep this lower- calorie, and I'm using my splurge calories on ice cream these days. Help!
