This low carb shrimp and cauliflower grits is my new go-to comfort food. It’s spicy, cheesy and all around dreamy. You won’t regret making the switch!

Low Carb Southern Comfort

We’re making comfort food a little healthier so you can indulge in it even more. I never really knew what shrimp and grits were until I moved to Texas and now I wish I had more of it sooner. low carb recipe I love spicy food and this combo of cajun seasoning with cheesy cauliflower rice is just perfect. The blend of cream cheese and parmesan is a little sweet and sharp and it compliments the spicy shrimp. If you don’t like spicy food, you can always use half of the seasoning suggested or if you really like spice then go on and measure with your heart. I love creating low carb versions of comfort foods and when they turn out really good, I get a little boost of confidence about my cooking too. So enjoy and remember to share food with the people you love!
