Chicken Fennel Soup with Lemon and Creme Fraiche (Paleo / AIP / Whole30)

disclaimer: this post may contain affiliate links.

Fennel is one of those vegetables I always instinctively pick up and sniff while shopping. There aren’t too many veggies I do this with, unless you count herbs, like cilantro and mint.

Here in the Northeast we thought spring was here, and boy, were we ready. Then this morning, I woke to nearly 5 inches of freshly fallen snow. Beautiful? Yes.

Following the AIP diet and lifestyle has been such a journey for me. A process of transformation and personal growth.
