Artist Wendy MacNaughton uncovered several writers with odd snacking habits in her research for this beautiful spread in last weekend's New York Times. Her illustrations of these habits give a fun peak inside the days, and minds, of our favorite authors.
MacNaughton covers everyone from Lord Byron (vinegar) to Joyce Maynard (lime popsicles) in her sketch, but I actually loved her own snack confession the most. Her work snack of choice is a bowl of crunchy garlic croutons. Or as MacNaughton calls them, "Pavlovian pellets to keep my spirits up."
I admit to a slight gummy bear addiction when I'm in the throes of a major project. Other than that, I'm with Michael Pollan and keep fueled with endless cups of tea.
