When most people talk about dill, they mean dill weed, which isn’t actually a weed. It’s an herb. The seed of that same plant is known as dill seed. It’s often used as a spice and it can certainly be included as part of a Paleo lifestyle.
The Health Benefits
Not only can herbs and spices be included as part of a healthy lifestyle, they should. Studies have demonstrated numerous health benefits from the regular consumption of herbs and spices, including improved blood pressure and glucose tolerance.
Like most plants, spices also come loaded with antioxidants. Cooking with them on a regular basis can help keep inflammation low and protect fats from oxidation.
Eat Tasty Food
Not to mention it makes your food delicious. That may not seem important, but no one is going to stay on a diet full of bland and boring food. By experimenting with herbs and spices, you can make sure you’ll stick to your healthy diet by filling it with delicious, flavorful food.
Paleo and Autoimmune Protocol
Nuts and seeds are allowed on the Paleo diet, but they tend to cause inflammation and digestive issues in some people. If you’ve been having some autoimmune issues, you might want to stay away from dill seed, at least for a time.
