Dill/ Suva/Shepu – so many names for this tasty green herb that’s currently in season. Have you added it to your meal plan?

Fresh Dill is in season and normally available till early spring. I’m going to tell you why you need to use this more in your meals. Low in calories and contains several nutrients that are essential for good health, including magnesium, vitamin C, vitamin A, and fibre. These nutrients can help support the immune system, promote healthy vision, and aid in digestion.

Magnesium is a mineral that is important for many bodily functions, including nerve and muscle function, blood sugar regulation, and bone health and Dill is a good source of magnesium
