Victoria Beckham Has A Bizarre Favorite Topping For Toast

Simple is not a word typically associated with Victoria Beckham. Posh Spice is known for maintaining a sleek, minimalist look, while also being high maintenance. In fact, in a 2008 cover story, Harper's Bazaar described her as "a woman largely perceived as the dictionary definition of high maintenance." That being said, during a September 2021 appearance on the River Cafe Table 4 podcast, Beckham astonished fans by admitting that she has a favorite comfort food, and it's surprisingly ordinary. Stars — they're just like us! 

So, what is it that Beckham likes to chow down on? "This is where I sound even more boring — in the food department. OK, what do I like? I like whole-grain toast ...," she said on the podcast. While it may sound simple enough, Beckham's treat involves an unexpected twist. It surely comes as no surprise that the former Spice Girl would want to spice up her comfort food of choice, but her favorite topping is a bit bizarre.

Victoria Beckham is a fan of salt

During a September 2021 appearance on the River Cafe Table 4 podcast, Victoria Beckham revealed that her favorite comfort food is whole-grain toast, and her topping of choice is salt. "It's that carb-y thing isn't it? It's that carbohydrate that makes you feel comforted, and I love salt. What can I say?," she said after sharing her guilty pleasure.

Needless to say, social media users had some thoughts about Beckham's snack choice. One Twitter user wrote, "Victoria Beckham has revealed she is a fussy eater and her favourite meal is toast with....salt .... wow how the other half live ..."

This isn't the first time Beckham has touched on her love of topping things with salt. Back in 2012, she tweeted, "I'm addicted to kale!! wash, break into small pieces, sprinkle a little salt and roast, it's so good and amazing for u!!! X vb"

It seems being healthy is important to Beckham, and as a mother of four, the she's seemingly well aware of how her life choices could impact her children. In a 2019 interview with Glamour U.K. in 2019, Beckham explained, "When you have children, it also puts a lot into perspective. You realize they notice everything. I would never sit down with my kids and skip a meal — they need to see that their mum eats healthily."
