I’m about to do something a little crazy. For the next month, I’m not going to eat like a food writer. Goodbyegrilled halibut cheek with charcoal potatoes by Top Chef winner Michael Voltaggio, foie gras topped duck burgers, and pizzas slathered with black truffle paste and crowned with an over easy egg.
Starting tomorrow and going until October 31, I will be following the diet that inspired Matt Matros to createProtein Bar – a quinoa-loving, health conscious fast casual eatery that opened its first D.C. location in Penn Quarter at the tail end of August. You could call my new regimen the Anti-Supersize Me. I’ll be eating his restaurant’s food three times a day (bring on the Buffalo Bar-ritos!), supplemented by Matros-approved snacks like hardboiled eggs and the occasional Larabar.
