Food, Health, and Happiness: 115 On-Point Recipes for Great Meals and a Better Life is coming out Jan. 3, 2017—and let's just say we have high hopes for what is sure to be a culinary masterpiece.
"As long as I can remember, I've been the kind of person who wants to share the things that make life better," Oprah told People in a statement. "When I come upon something useful, something that brings me pleasure or comfort or ease, I want everyone else to know about it and benefit from it, too. And that is how this cookbook came to be. It's my life story — the lessons I've learned, the discoveries I've made—told through food."
O's cookbook will include recipes for things like "Unfried Chicken", "Turkey Chili, Farro With Peas, Asparagus, Pesto and Cured Olives" and even "Sustainable Chilean Sea Bass with Lemon Fennel Chutney." That all sounds delicious—and indeed, quite healthy—and we're looking forward to seeing what else Oprah has us cooking up in the new year.
For starters, we are expecting garden-fresh vegetables to be a staple. Our at-home gardens might not produce quite the same yield as Oprah's, but that's what farmer's markets are for.
We also know that Oprah makes a mean french toast from challah.
And her cranberry sauce looks like something we'd like to make around the holidays...
Really, though, we'll take any edible item on O's table at Christmas.
And at least somewhere in the ingredients, there better be some starchy stuff. We all know that Oprah loooooooves her some bread.

And as O taught us, you can lose weight while still eating bread. It's all about moderation, guys.
