Paleo Swiss Steak - Dusted with Coconut Flour

This is a gluten free spin on Baba M's famous Swiss Steak recipe. I used coconut flour instead of wheat in my batch and will have to switch out the mushrooms for peppers next time.

So today is a crazy day. I will be running all day so I am leaving you with a recipe from the archives I made a few weeks ago that I never had a chance to post. It was my pre-Candida diet days. It can easy be adapted to be Candida diet friendly so I will be making it again. 

I'm also trying to eat more beef since I can't have pork on my Candida diet and beef is basically the best food to try and combat my low iron problem. 

Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day. Mine was awesome. We spent 4 hours at the local fair, the sun was shining and the kids were happy. So I was happy.

Hubby even baked a turkey for dinner. For a former chef he does very little cooking these days. He's not sure what I can and can't eat so he's kind of thrown in the towel. But he stepped up for Mother's Day and it was nice to get a break. And we have LOTS of leftovers so I won't have to cook again today. Bonus since I have no time..........
