Famed talk show host and founder of the OWN Network, Oprah Winfrey is jumping into the restaurant business. The media mogul will join True Food Kitchen as a board member and act as a consultant.
“I love bringing people together over a good meal,” Winfrey said in a statement. “When I first dined at True Food Kitchen, I was so impressed with the team’s passion for healthy eating and, of course, the delicious food, that I knew I wanted to be part of the company’s future.”
The latest business move by Lady O comes on the heels of her own food line debut in 2017 with the expansion of her brand to promote comfort food (can be healthy) O, That’s Good! – a line of four traditional side dishes and soups with a healthy twist.
Oprah, who also has shares in Weight Watchers will bring to the healthy food business what she brought to daytime television. And in the spirit of Oprah herself , “You get a healthy meal! You get a healthy meal! You get a healthy meal!”
Have you tried the O, That’s Good! side dishes?

True Food Kitchen was founded in 2008— by Dr. Andrew Weil and Phoenix restaurateur Sam Fox. The concept was to design a menu around Weil’s anti-inflammatory food pyramid. Chronic inflammation has been linked to heart disease, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and rheumatoid arthritis, among other health complications. The dishes are influenced by Mediterranean, Asian and Californian cuisines and include items like soups, salads, pasta, noodle dishes and burgers.
