Oprah wants you to eat your vegetables.
Her line of frozen entrées and sides — O, That’s Good — features comfort foods with blended-in veggies. There’s a range of quick fixings: pizzas on cauliflower crusts, soups and sides with healthy fillers like butternut squash, and skillet meals in six varieties.
Is it really healthy?
Some items contain up to 75 percent less fat and 40 percent less sodium, compared with competitors’ dishes. With Lady O’s assurance that her pizza crusts are part cauliflower and with white beans masquerading as creamy alfredo, you may be inclined to load up. Respect the serving sizes for calorie control.

- “The broccoli cheddar soup doesn’t taste as though you’re forcing yourself to eat healthily, and as a bonus, it’s hiding satisfying chunks of broccoli and carrots.”
- “If you didn't know there was a ‘twist of cauliflower,’ you wouldn't pick up on it.”

Patti LaBelle wants to be your soul provider.
