If you love food and want to feel great then this book (Food, Health, and Happiness) is definitely designed for you.

From the impassioned words of her introduction, through the colorful eye-catching photography and useful guidance, this is obviously a delight from start to finish. 

This cookbook is a true reflection of Oprah lifelong relationship with foods.  The recipes are easy to follow, it will help you get a delicious, quick and easy dinner on the table in an hour or less.

Overview of Food Health and Happiness

Oprah starts out her cookbook by sharing her ups and downs of her weight loss journey.

Nothing I hadn’t read before, she reveals that she regrets making her wagon of the fat episode.

She exposes how much weight she lost, only to gain five pounds in a day after getting off the stage and out of the jeans she said felt like they were painted on.

But I remember, back then she could lose weight because she had people looking for her and she also had personal trainers.

She doesn’t have to think about it, someone would tell her what to eat and how to work out- How simple?!

But it doesn’t matter how much you money you make or how much you keep it and what convenience you have in life, when it comes right down to it,  only you can make a decision that can lead to a healthier lifestyle.

Oprah talks about how if Maya Angelou (Her mother sister friend) were here, she would ask her-

“OK if anyone knows better when it comes to dieting, it’s me. So how do you explain my endless struggle with weight? Why is it that, with all this experience and information, I haven’t done better?

My guess is she’d probably smile and in that commanding voice unlike any I’ve ever heard, she’d say, well my dear, when you’re truly ready to know, you will.”

You know all about the weight loss and you can tell yourself to eat less and move more, you can cut down the carbs and salty snacks, you can even practice portion control – at this point, we all know the drill.

The reality is, most diets are temporary, a quick fix to weight loss, not a long-term solution. They only last as long as our willpower holds out.

But how long can any of us hold our breath before we need a gulp of air?


I am living.  I am eating really good food.  I am actually kind of glad that I got this cough because it’s made me focus on the food when really that’s what it’s all about to get the scale move. 

Yes, the exercise helps reshape your body, burn some extra calories – sure.  But you can never work out enough to overcome a crappy diet. 

 It’s just not going to happen.  Especially when you’d have to do an hour of high-intensity cardio to burn off one chocolate coconut cake donut from Dunkin Donuts- Oprah

When thumbing through The Food Health and Happiness this weekend, everything just looked so delicious.

I was thrilled to read the first 19 recipes that are actually soup recipes.
