Shrimp & Grits with Fresh Bell Peppers & Onions

shrimp and grits

A Southern favorite, with a twist!

Shrimp and grits is a classic dish served across the South, and we would be amiss if we didn’t find a way to brighten the recipe up! 

Bell peppers (especially red, yellow, and orange varieties) and onions contain good amounts of Vitamin C, which may help increase iron absorption in the body.  The various antioxidants in bell peppers also provide support for other body systems, such as eye health!  

We suggest using fresh bell peppers and low-fat cheese in this recipe.  If you don’t like grits, you can substitute cauliflower rice for an extra serving of veggies!  Recipe & picture from Taste of Home. Link here.
