Oprah Winfrey Launch a Line of Healthy and Affordable Refrigerated Meals

Oprah Winfrey has launched a line of nutritious, reasonably priced, refrigerated comfort foods, and according to People, she’s hoping they’ll make healthy eating much more accessible for all.

The first wave of the O, That’s Good! collection features four side dishes and four soups—all of which include a not-so-secret healthy twist. The Original Mashed Potatoes, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, and Baked Potato Soup have added cauliflower. The Three Cheese Pasta and Broccoli Cheddar Soup are both enhanced with pureed butternut squash. The Creamy Parmesan Pasta has white beans hidden inside. The Creamy Tomato Basil Soup is loaded with carrots and celery, and the already veggie-heavy Creamy Butternut Squash Soup also includes sweet potatoes and carrots.

Oprah, 63, told People that the collaboration with Kraft Heinz was a no-brainer for her. She says that she’s been approached about all kinds of partnerships over the years, but that not all have been a good fit. “I have always just wanted to stay in my lane and to do what was organic for me, authentic and natural.” She added, “[Kraft Heinz] mentioned the idea of making nutritious food accessible to a lot of communities that do not have that option. And that is what intrigued me.” The soups and sides, which will start hitting shelves early this month before expanding to grocery stores around the country in October, will retail for $4.99 and $4.49 each, respectively.
