Recently, while attending one of her husband’s football games, Biles showcased a delicacy that is bound to be different from her usual healthy food items.

Multiple reports also indicate that pizza is her favorite food, while she also loves froyo and fries. The gymnast also revealed that she is a morning person but does not always have breakfast. If she does decide to have breakfast, she goes for quick and easy options like oatmeal or fresh fruit. Her morning beverage does not usually include coffee. Rather, she sticks to water, something that she keeps close by at all times during the day. However, she changes her pattern on the weekends when she gives in to a grand breakfast, which can include protein waffles adorned with chocolate chips, eggs, or cinnamon rolls. The Olympian also has a number of snacks that she frequently eats.
