The Protein Bar: New Breakfast Menu

Last Friday, I had the pleasure of going to The Protein Bar in Farragut Square to participate in a tasting of their new breakfast menu. Generally, I'm a simple breakfast person.

I was pleasantly surprised by how helpful and nice she was! Stephanie is the woman behind the account, trying new foods across the district and documenting her finds. I asked her more about her gluten free journey and how she ended up being a strong influencer in the area.
