Food, Health, and Happiness by Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey is a media personality everyone knows, whether it’s for her talk show, her magazine, or any of her other major accomplishments. Over the course of her career, Oprah has been fairly open about her struggles with food. She’s managed to lose and gain weight numerous times throughout her career, and her dieting journey has been one that fans have followed and even become involved with over the years.

And given that Oprah’s fan base has been so immersed in her journey—a journey that likely resembles many of their own—it makes sense that she released a book full of recipes and dieting tips, along with the details of her own experience making peace with food.

Food, Health, and Happiness is a great guide for anyone looking to maintain a healthy weight without cutting out their favorite foods entirely. With assistance from chefs such as Rosie Daley, Art Smith, Mei Lin, Taryn Huebner, and Sonny Sweetman, Oprah lists 115 recipes that taste good and aren’t incredibly bad for you.

According to the book’s description, Food, Health, and Happiness includes recipes like “Unfried Chicken,” “Turkey Chili,” “Farro With Peas, Asparagus, Pesto and Cured Olives,” and “Chilean Sea Bass with Lemon Fennel Chutney.” With such meals, Oprah aims to walk the balance between using food to improve health and using it as a means of celebration and joy.

Food, Health, and Happiness will allow readers to experience Oprah’s journey while reading, and it will enable them to improve their own relationships with food in the process. And that’s the most important thing about dieting, isn’t it?
