Simon Cowell swapped his vegetarian meal for meat and chocolate while recovering from his e-bike crash.
Before breaking his back in three places, the X-Factor boss lost four stones thanks to a plant-based diet.
But the 60-year-old is spoiled with his old favorite turkey hut pie from partner Lauren Silverman and chocolate as comfort food in the hospital.
A source said: “Lauren was in the hospital dropping off a few things every day. She made his favorite Italian bean soup and also cottage pie with turkey which he loves.
"His diet is incredibly healthy, but there is nothing like traditional English comfort foods and treats when you are on the mend.
"Cowell is in hospital after falling from his new electric bike at his Malibu home last week. He narrowly avoided becoming paralyzed as the impact was 'an inch' from his spinal cord.

Despite the fractures, he is expected to be released this week and has already been working from his hospital bed.
Cowell, who spoke to six-year-old son Eric on FaceTime, has received thousands of letters, cards, and messages of support from around the world.
The source added, "Simon paced up and down faster than the doctor predicted, although his friends remind him that it is important to heal before rushing back to work."
Cowell ate hamburgers, sausage rolls, and jam tarts before embarking on a vegetarian and dairy-free diet.
Let's hope he doesn't fall off the car.
