Oprah Winfrey's very own cookbook is finally on its way. As one of the world’s most vocal champions of healthy dieting, fans have often turned to Winfrey for culinary advice. Though the talk show host released In the Kitchen with Rosie: Oprah's Favorite Recipes in 1994, the recipes actually came from her personal chef, Rosie Daley.
This book, titled Food, Health and Happiness: "On Point" Recipes for Great Meals and a Better Life, will consist of recipes developed by Oprah herself, based on her recent experience with Weight Watchers.
"In the past several months on Weight Watchers, I have worked with wonderful chefs to make healthier versions of my favorite meals," Winfrey said in a statement. "When people come to my house for lunch or dinner, the number one thing they ask is, 'How is this so delicious and still healthy?' So I decided to answer that question with recipes everyone can enjoy."
Oprah and Weight Watchers have had a fruitful partnership since she came on board as an investor—she owns 10% of the company—in 2015. According to the former daytime host, she's shed over 20 pounds sine joining the program.
The news comes as a surprise to many of Oprah's fans who have been holding their collective breath for her memoir, The Life You Want, which was originally set to come out this January. Instead, the memoir has been "postponed indefinitely," while her cookbook is expected to hit shelves January 3, just in time for your post-holiday diet.
