While most comfort foods conjure images of hearty decadence and over-the-top indulgence, believe it or not, a satisfying meal can be healthy. This week's Most Popular Pin of the Week, featured in Food Network Magazine, is a good-for-you take on a traditionally rich pick, shrimp and grits; it features all the flavors and textures you know and crave in the classic rendition, with cheesy, creamy grits and tender, lemony shrimp, but it's made sans cream and with only a bit of butter, so the results turn out lighter. Perhaps best of all, this fan-favorite dish can be on the table in only 30 quick minutes.
