Beyoncé made history at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, March 14, as the beloved entertainer collected her 28th Grammy, winning four awards in total the same evening. And while the star looked stylish in a skintight black leather Schiaparelli gown, she’s never been one to shy away from her favorite comfort food indulgences when she’s not in awards mode.
So, what does the star really eat when she’s off the clock? According to a 2020 interview with British Vogue, Beyoncé’s still got a taste for the Southern foods she grew up with.
“It’s good eating in Texas!” the star said of her home state. “I love Cajun seafood at Pappadeaux. The barbecue in Texas is mmmm. So is the Mexican food and the soul food. We ate soul food every Sunday after church. There was nothing better than when a little bit of candied yams got on your oxtail and macaroni.”
That’s far from the only indulgence the star gives into from time to time, though; read on to discover what other comfort foods Queen Bey is all about. And for more celebrity food news delivered straight to your inbox, sign up for our newsletter!
Whether she’s whipping up plant-based meals at home or hitting up a restaurant in Jay Z’s native Brooklyn, pizza is a favorite of the superstar. In addition to capturing her love for a good slice on Instagram, her trainer, Marco Borges, told People that Bey and Jay love to whip up a vegan pie at home.
“They love pizza,” he says, noting that the couple “didn’t have to give it up” when they adopted a plant-based diet, thanks to his vegan recipe. And for more on your favorite celebs’ cheat meals, Kylie Jenner Just Revealed Her Massive McDonald’s Order Post-Photoshoot.

Protein bars with bananas
Of course, not all of Beyoncé’s favorite treats are quite as indulgent as a drum of caramel corn. When she’s sticking to a vegan diet, the star snacks on 22 Days vegan protein bars with sliced banana on top.
Who says a vegan diet has to mean giving up treats? When she’s not snacking on protein bars, Beyoncé might be hitting up her local bakery—the star has professed her love for vegan cupcakes on Instagram, too.
