Finally! Some southern comfort food that tastes good and is diet friendly. This southern classic combines lean protein and slow digesting carbs that could easily be eaten for breakfast, lunch, or dinner and it will provide maximum energy for your workouts.

What gives it a nice kick in the pants is the elote seasoning being used. I picked it up at Trader Joe's. Being the culinary expert I am after watching so many cooking shows (cough cough joke cough cough), I figured if elote seasoning tastes good on an ear of corn, it must taste good on corn grits. I was right for once! After all, Elote does mean corn in Spanish. The spice compliments the shrimp as well. You almost get that southern gumbo feel. The spice from the elote seasoning was doing it's job, but it needed a partner in crime. That's why I decided to add Trader Joe's cheesy blend seasoning.

It's a powdered cheese seasoning that you can sprinkle on top of foods. It contains powdered cheddar cheese, onion, garlic, and rosemary.

These 2 seasonings go hand in hand. Each spoonful provides get spicy, savory kick.

You can adjust the recipe to your macros, but the suggested portion size is 1/4 cup of grits and 6 oz of shrimp. Run along now and give this healthy southern classic a try!
