RuPaul's Favorite Food 'Indulgences' Might Surprise You

We all have our vices, whether it be caffeine, cigarettes, or reality TV, it's safe to say everyone has a few guilty pleasures. Sometimes those indulgences align with what we put on our plate. For TV personality, performer, and unanimous queen of all drag queens, RuPaul, his indulgences aren't what you would have in mind for a millionaire. It's safe to assume that with access to anything desired, one would opt for something high-end and luxurious. Although, headlines such as "Celebrities, They're Just Like Us" remind common-folk that everyone has simple pleasures, even the rich and famous.

While one of his favorite eateries may be Greenwich Village's Elephant & Castle (via The New York Times), his go-to snack isn't on the menu. When RuPaul is seeking comfort, he doesn't reach for a nice glass of wine or a five-star meal. Instead, he goes for two things that many don't even like.

RuPaul intentionally burns his toast

According to Us Weekly, RuPaul's favorite combo is black coffee and burnt toast. During an interview with Access Online, RuPaul said that burnt toast isn't just a preferred snack, but one of the few loves of his life. When discussing his romantic history, he puts his charred toast above all else, "...but if I need to have burnt toast with another gentleman other than Jimmy and Judge Judy, then so be it." Surprisingly, RuPaul isn't alone with his affinity for weird cravings. While a lot of food indulgences are based on nostalgia and fond memories that bring comfort to the table, there are some cravings that are tied to specific diets.

Having a thick slice of charred sourdough could bring you right back to your grandma's kitchen, but a hankering for burnt food could also mean your body secretly needs a few apples. Natura Life states that an appetite for singed cuisine could mean your body is lacking carbon, and a few servings of fruit can help curb that deficiency. RuPaul may be committed to his pairing of burnt toast and black coffee for life, but as long as it's enjoyed in moderation, America's beloved drag queen should be A-OK according to dietician Rachael Link (via Healthline).
