Aug 09 2017 - Heinz

It all started with the idea for the cauliflower mashed potatoes -- the twist is really what sparked this whole idea. I was sitting at my table in my own home and had whipped up some cauliflower, trying to make myself think I was eating mashed potatoes, but it was not working. So I thought, What if I used a portion of the mashed potatoes and added the cauliflower? Then, I would have a substantive mashed potato-cauli dish.feedback

O, That's Good. I've been asked over the years to attach my name to many product lines and would turn them down, because it really has to feel authentic to me. In this case, everyone knows I love healthy foods and cooking with food straight from my garden. I am always looking to make my meals more nutritious, without compromising on the comfort elements I love. Kraft Heinz approached me with a food line and they mentioned the idea of making nutritious food accessible to everyone...and I was hooked.feedback

Aug 09 2017

I've been asked over the years to do anything you can imagine to attach my name to it to. I have always just wanted to stay in my lane and to do what was organic for me, authentic and natural. Food would be it.feedback

The next thing you know I'll be staring a bread company. Only kidding, but if I could start a bread company I would. I haven't figured out because bread doesn't ship well. You can't get it to last without putting a lot of preservatives in it. So it's important to me stuff be as desirable and fresh as possible.feedback

Aug 09 2017

We're not calling it diet food because people don't want to be on a diet. We're not putting points on [the packaging] so that people can't say, What if I'm not on that program?' It's just a step in the direction of getting folks to eat better.feedback

Aug 09 2017

They 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.feedback

As you all know, there was Pinkberrygate a while back. There was no lemon Pinkberry at my local Pinkberry dealership. And Jessica [a rep from Pinkberry] heard about that and has now created a Pinkberry party to make up for that – I thank you so much Pinkberry! This is when you know you've made it in life – when Pinkberry does a Queen Sugar swirl.feedback

I had problems saying no. So this principal of intention is literally what saved and changed the trajectory of my living. I started to make my decisions on what I intended, not just on what someone else wanted me to do or what I thought would please them.feedback

Jun 17 2017

In it, [Zukav] talks about how every action is followed by a reaction, which we all know is the third law of motion in physics. But he also said, before there's even a thought or an action, there is an intention. Something struck me about that. That an intention precedes every thought and every action and the outcome of your experiences is determined by the intention.feedback

Jun 17 2017

The reason [The Oprah Winfrey Show was] No. 1 for 25 solid years is because we intended to be.feedback

Jun 15 2017 - Women

When we started to gather the OWN tribe, and recognize who had come, the question in our meeting rooms was how do we now serve this audience – who is this woman? She is an intentional seeker, she's the kind of person who's watching 'Super Soul Sunday' as her church. Many of them are single moms who are working, but who have dreams for their lives, their children's lives, they're in relationships, they're getting married again. So we try to meet them where they are and serve them in an intentional way that reflects their lives back on themselves.feedback

I wanted to be able to save that show, but it did not make good business sense for me.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - Twitter

I had a scene where my son had died and I had gotten myself to the point where I'm ready to just let it all go, and the director, Lee Daniels, said, Nope, I don't want her to do that. I don't want her throwing herself all over the casket. I just want her to hold it, hold it, hold it, hold it …' And so, I didn't release it. I left that scene, got on a plane, went to interview somebody else and was holding it ….feedback

What to do with all this Dill? #Harvestday. This has been the easiest process that I've ever experienced. I can eat anything I want; I just can't eat it at the same time. Which is the entire philosophy of life: You can have it all. You just can't have it all at the same time.feedback

May 25 2017

I made a clear intention to use every show to inform, to encourage, to inspire, to uplift and entertain at the same time. I decided that the notion of intention – knowing why you want to do something, not just doing it but understanding the why behind the doing – could also change the paradigm for every show.feedback

May 23 2017

Every decision I've ever made, I've come back to that space.feedback

May 23 2017

So I figured out how to lean into life and allow that flow that was designed for me follow. Everybody has what I call this instinct, this inner voice. Every decision I've ever made that led me to the right space and place in my life, I got there because I relied on that inner voice. The reason we were number one for 25 solid years is because we intended to be. I practice being grateful. I got everything because I practiced being grateful. Some days you only have, I'm still breathing.' Because life gets in the way.feedback

May 23 2017

And changing the paradigm from just doing a television show, from just being on TV, to actually intending to be of service to the viewers changed the trajectory of the show.feedback

May 23 2017

I was confused, I was a wreck, I forgot about intention. I knew in that moment, Well now, that is not my truth. I got to see and figure out who I really was in the face of being called a liar. Everybody goes through trials – I just happened to be in an actual trial. There's going to be a trial in your life. It may be disease, it may be jobs, it may be any number of crises that stand outside yourself to try to tell you who you are. And let that truth set you free.feedback

May 18 2017

You're nothing if you're not the truth. I've made a living, I've made a life – I've made a fortune, really – all good! – from being true to myself. If I can leave you with any message today: The biggest reward is not financial benefits, though it's really good, you can get a lot of great shoes!feedback

May 14 2017

Those of you who have a lot of shoes know having a closet full of shoes doesn't fill up your life. Living a life of substance can. Substance through your service.feedback

May 13 2017

The context of the times makes it impossible to think that the reasons the family were treated this way were to do with anything else other than race and class – both played a role. What's difficult to justify is that there are members of the Lacks family who are still without healthcare.feedback

I was raped at nine years old by a cousin, then again by another family member, and another family member.feedback

May 13 2017

May 13 2017

Millions of families are living with their secrets. And, as a result of the covering up, or the burying, the uncovering in later life impacts people in direct proportion to how deeply it was buried.feedback

May 08 2017

I thought, I'm going to let this college thing go and I only had one credit short. But, my father, from that time on and for years after, was always on my case, because I did not graduate. He'd say, Oprah Gail,' that's my middle name, I don't know what you're gonna do without that degree.feedback

Apr 19 2017

I had similar things happen [to me], so I could relate and be empathetic. But trying to find the space of deep pain was harder for me. … It was easier for me to take on somebody else's energy and somebody else's pain than to tap into my own.feedback

Apr 17 2017

It's rare that I feel intimidated, but I felt intimidated. From the beginning, I said to [director George C. Wolfe]: 'George, I'm putting myself in your hands. I can take direction and I just don't want to make a fool of myself – please don't let me embarrass myself.' I sort of leaned into him and just let him guide me through it.feedback

Apr 17 2017

I've done a great deal of healing sitting on the other side of that microphone.feedback

Apr 17 2017

This story is about a daughter's yearning. Her longing to know who she is and to find her own identity through the identity of her mother. If she can figure out who her mother is, she will know who she is. She can find herself through that. I just sort heal myself, heal my soul, heal me. When I go back inside to reach into those parts of myself that still feel anger … I don't have any rage. I don't even have a pocket of rage. I can't even find a little tinge of it over here.feedback

Apr 14 2017

I don't have to tell you all how much I love bread. These English muffins are my current carb of choice: crunchy on the outside, fluffy on the inside, and scrumptious all over–especially when slathered with the amazing Clif Family preserves that are included.feedback

Apr 14 2017 - Carbon

My greatest extravagance is flying in English muffins from Napa Valley. There's a specific English muffin made by these two women at this wonderful bakery in Napa Valley. I know it's not a good carbon footprint to fly in your English muffins but….feedback

Apr 14 2017

I see all of my work as a kind of offering. It comes from a genuine spirit of enthusiasm. I felt a genuine desire to share this story, because this is a name that people should know.feedback

Apr 14 2017

I asked her to tell me the story, because I didn't have enough charge from my own beatings. I have to work really, really hard to pull up anger and rage. But hearing someone else talk about their beatings, I could have great empathy, great compassion, great sorrow and sadness.feedback

Apr 13 2017

For about two years, I was off balance. I was so accustomed to having an itinerary done for me and that itinerary just being jammed from the time I got up in the morning. I wouldn't even look at it until was I done with the day. I'd just say, Where am I next? What do we do now?' . I was just like, Oh, okay. It's 7:30, and I woke up when I heard the birds,' . I had to figure out how to set a schedule based on what I want to do. I don't have to be in the office at any certain time. I don't have a 9:00 show and a 1:00 show and then a 3:00 meeting afterwards.feedback

Apr 12 2017 - Women

Her family didn't know that anyone had taken her cells until much later on. Once they discovered it, trying to figure out how it all happened – and how it unraveled and multi-millions of dollars, now billions of dollars, have been made off of the cells – is the story of the Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.feedback

Mar 13 2017

In the past, we couldn't get Tyler's audience to stay for anything. They would just come in and then they go. So to be able to get a great percentage of his audience, I think around 70 percent, to stay tuned for something else other than a Tyler-produced show, it was a new feat for us. It was a new accomplishment for us.feedback

Mar 13 2017

It helped me trust my instincts, because for the first couple of years of OWN, I lost a sense of what would work or not. We were trying to do so many different things.

Mar 13 2017

Sometimes when people don't respond, it helps you. It gives you a voice.feedback

I actually never thought – I never considered the question even a possibility. I just thought, oh, oh. I thought, I don't have the experience, I don't know enough. Now I'm thinking, Oh, oh.feedback

Mar 01 2017

I actually never thought that that was – I never considered the question, even a possibility. There really is no choice, people. All the people sitting around talking about they can't decide ... this is what I really want to say. I hear this all the time, you get in conversations ... where people say, I just don't know if I like her.' She's not coming over to your house. You don't have to like her. You don't have to like her.feedback

Jan 31 2017

I'm so excited and proud to join forces with this historic news program, which for me represents the bastion of journalistic storytelling.
