Get it? OWN produce line? Like her TV network?? LOLz!
It's true! Oprah wants to make the world a healthier place, and plans on doing it one organic produce at a time!
Actually, it's probably a bunch of organic produce all at once… whatever, you get our point! We told you she's turning about 16 acres on her 1,000-acre property on Maui into farmland, and as it turns out she'll be growing crops on an island that imports roughly 90 percent of its food — so it'll help IMMENSELY!
She had this to say:
You can eat your vegan pasta and have it creamy too! No need to sacrifice on flavor or texture when keeping it vegan. Instead of butter and milk, use non dairy buttery spread and soy milk! (or swap your fav substitute for cows milk, like almond milk or coconut milk)
12. oz tortellini pasta (I used frozen sun-dried tomato tortellini)
2 tablespoons earth balance buttery spread (non dairy)
2 tablespoons flour
2 cups soy milk
2 tablespoons pesto sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
12 oz. artichoke hearts
Cook pasta in salted boiling water until al dente. Once cooked, remove from water and set aside. Reserve 1 cup of water and set aside. Heat up earth balance in a large pot until melted. Add the flour and whisk together until smooth and combined. Add the milk and whisk together until smooth and combined. Continue to whisk together until thickened. Add the pesto and season with salt, pepper and garlic. Drain the artichokes and add to the sauce and whisk together with sauce. Once nice and thick, turn off heat and add the pasta into the sauce. Mix together and serve with freshly chopped basil and red pepper flakes. (optional, for those that like it spicy!)
*Tips&Tricks: If you do not like artichokes, you can replace them with wilted spinach, sauteed mushrooms and onions, or simply stick with pasta. You can also swap the tortellini for your favorite pasta! If you want to make this dairy, simple use butter instead of the earth balance and use milk or heavy cream instead of soy milk. If serving this dairy, be sure to add some parmesan on top after it’s cooked. There is nothing like yummy fresh grated parmesan!

Regardless of whether or not Beyonce is expecting baby number 2, there's one thing we're 100% sure about. She looks FABULOUS!
So how does the queen manage to always stay in tip-top shape with her super busy schedule?
Well, nobody would argue that Beyonce gets a HUGE workout every night she hits the stage, but she also makes sure she eats right too!
As shockingly unhealthy as they probably are, we can't help but want so many of pastry chef Domnique Ansel's damn Cronuts in our mouth right now! Somebody needs to take our money and have it happen!
If you couldn't figure it out from the headline, Cronuts are a blissful and genius combination of DONUTS and CROISSANTS. Both unhealthy, both delicious. Instead of having one each, why not combine the two into a silky king-sized bed for your tastebuds??
We dare you to try and get half-way through the video (above) before you drown in your own drool! We DARE YOU! LOLz!
Someone bring us a dozen of these STAT! Oh, and let us know if California's new friend will be attempting their own version!
We hope the museum is a giant fridge, or else all the butter exhibits might melt! LOLz!
It's true, the self proclaimed doughnut burger inventor — Paula Deen — might just be getting a museum DEDICATED TO HER. We're not just talking a museum being named The Deen or anything like that, but we're talking one dedicated to her life and accomplishments!
Do you think there will be a special exhibit all about hiding Type II diabetes from her fans while she continued to only teach them unhealthy recipes for YEARS? Probably not! Ha!
Here's what she has to say about it:
Eating Greek yogurt is becoming increasingly popular these days. Although it is smoother, has a stronger flavor and is less sweet than regular yogurt, is it healthier for you?
Here's food for thought:
- Both the non-fat and low fat kinds of these yogurts are healthy for you, because they are loaded with calcium and "good" bacteria.
- The same serving of Greek Yogurt is thicker, has half the sugar and twice the protein as
- A 6-ounce serving of Greek Yogurt contains 15 to 20 grams of protein or the same amount in 2 to 3 ounces of lean meat. While the same serving of regular yogurt contains only 9 grams of protein.
- If you are watching your carbs, Greek Yogurt has about half the carbs as the regular kind—5 to 8 grams per serving, compared to 13 to 17 for regular yogurt.
It's true that eating disorders seem to afflict women more than men, but it would be completely wrong for someone to go around saying that men never get them — take actor Ashley Hamilton, for instance. He was in Iron Man 3, and he has a history of eating disorder trouble!
Ashley plays a small but pivotal role of former military officer Jack Taggert, and he also has a band called The Wondergirls, and he says he's:
