Oprah’s New Food Line Has An Unexpected Twist
By April Benshosan
The Weight Watchers spokesperson is expanding her empire and helping people lose weight at the same time.
It seems like Oprah is everywhere: on book covers, magazine covers, the big screen, in TV commercials. And by the end of September 2017, you’ll see her name in grocery stores nationwide, too. The multi-billion dollar mogul has teamed up with chefs to create a line of refrigerated comfort foods—fittingly dubbed O, That's Good!—that feature a healthy twist. As the mission statement on her website states: “Because why shouldn't the comfort foods you love, love you back?” So, since we’re all wondering, will her new food line include bread?
This fall, the line will kick off by debuting four soups retailing at $4.99 each and four sides priced at $4.49 a pop. Although Oprah’s new brand doesn’t offer freshly baked loaves, she does serve up some delicious carbs for weight loss in the form of Creamy Butternut Squash Soup (with sweet potatoes and carrots), Garlic Mashed Potatoes (with cauliflower), and Three Cheese Pasta (with butternut squash).
We love that Winfrey’s foods are free of artificial dyes and flavors, pack a protein punch, and offer in a solid dose of nutrient- and fiber-filled veggies. Even the sinful-sounding Creamy Parmesan Pasta and the ultra-comforting Broccoli Cheddar Soup get a healthy punch with the addition of slimming white beans and butternut squash!
Another reason we’re already loving O, That’s Good!: a portion of the profits will be donated to charities aimed at ending hunger. If you’re anything like us and can’t wait until school season to grab some of Oprah’s delish comfort food renditions, opt for picking up some of the grab-and-go picks from our list of 17 Processed Foods Nutritionists Approve Of in the meantime.
