Wanna know the secret to making low-carb grits? Shhh, I’ll tell you!

If you grew up in the South like I have, then no doubt you have been exposed to the delicious sometimes breakfast, sometimes dinner food known as grits. No, not the Girls Raised In The South kinda grits.

I’m talking about the kind that is made from hominy (a type of corn) and you stuff in your mouth! Or should I say you USED to since these are now off limits on your low-carb lifestyle because of their starchy, high-carb content.

Well, not anymore!
