Let’s be honest, nothing about Victoria Beckham suggests that she would enjoy rich, indulgent soul foods. This is a person who has gone on record to say that her go-to comfort food is a slice of wholemeal toast with salt. “It’s that carbohydrate that makes you feel comforted, and I love salt.”
So we weren’t really surprised when the designer’s husband David Beckham revealed that Posh Spice has been eating one single meal without fail every day for the past 25 years and that it’s perhaps the healthiest and non-fun meal we can think of.
The footballer went on River Cafe Table 4 podcast and spoke about his love for food and sharing it with the people he loves, except that he doesn’t get to enjoy that with his wife.
“I get quite emotional about food and wine, when I’m eating something great, I want everyone to try it. Unfortunately, I’m married to someone that has eaten the same thing for the last 25 years. Since I met her, she only eats grilled fish, steamed vegetables, she will very rarely deviate from that,” he said.
Beckham revealed that the designer cheated on her self-imposed diet was when she was pregnant with their daughter Harper and that was, in his own words, the “most amazing thing” and one of his “favourite evenings”.
Victoria, in a previous appearance on the same podcast had admitted that she likes her food to be cooked in a very specific way and that she doesn’t like oils or butters or sauces.
We wish we had the discipline of Victoria Beckham when it comes to indulging in Chinese takeout once again for the weekend just because we were feeling sad that there were no more episodes of Bridgerton left to stream…
