I guess what I don't understand is where this "overnight" stuff comes in. If it's instant oatmeal, can't this be done...instantly? Are we supposed to mix all of this stuff together and let it sit in a bowl, mixed together, in the refrigerator all night long? Do we cover it?

 

I swear to GOD if I find you're leaving out instructions or ingredients and this sucks...

 

I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you're looking for ransom for the missing overnight oatmeal instructions or certain ingredients, I can tell you I don't have money...but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you give me the missing instructions and ingredients now, that will be the end of it - I will not look for you, I will not pursue you... but if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you... and I will f***ing kill you.

Bravo, Liam, Bravo...

Me and my lady have made a simple variation of the overnight oats before: Cup of rolled oats (either bulk or bob's Red Mill variety) mashed up banana, teaspoon of vanilla, and a handful of Chia Seeds all drowned in almond milk.

 

Then we will add some agave in the morning or add some fresh blueberries or strawberries.

 

Haven't had it in a while though. Might have to hop back on the band wagon haha

now THAT sounds good. :)

I assume youve been hitting up the new one on Clinton?

The on in FFC, yes. You order online and just pick it up right in the entrance. It was super annoying before when you could only go there at certain times.

Its called "Protein Bar". There are a few in Chicago, most recent one opened on Clinton Street. I know Rock is in the West Loop, so I was wondering if he had been to that one. I didnt realize it was in the FFC.

Everyone (besides me) loves it. To be fair I only tried it once, had the buffalo chicken, just wasnt my thing.

Extra sauce goes a long way in that one. Their chicken chili is pretty good. Also their breakfest is worth trying.

 

 

Also found out Hannah's Bretzel is opening in the "sorta" west loop. Pretty pumped on that.

Are any of them open on the weekends? I tried taking my wife to one, after discovering it for lunch while doing jury duty, and the place was closed on weekends.

Id be really happy with a Hannah's Bretzel. I wish theyd put it where the Halsted Deli was.

 

Right now my main locations are Chipotle, I Dream of Falafel and Epic Burger. I used to go to Venice a ton, but burned out on it. Maybe Ill get a calzone next week.

I actually might be looking into one, If youd get some sort of referral fee id gladly give you the business (if I decide to switch to FFC)

I actually work there. Shoot me a pm before you check one out. If it's my location Ill show you around, if it's a different one, ill refer you to a good person to talk to.

Will do, I currently go to a different gym that is ridiculously close to where I live. The problem is that it has really gone downhill and I feel that maybe I should be looking into something better.

I gotcha. You should definitely check us out than, you'll love the facilities, I can promise you that. We just lowered our prices too.

 

But I don't wanna get all "salesy" on you ha. If you have any questions or want some info just pm me man.

It's a work in progress. Used steel cut oats and used too much yogurt and milk for the amount of oats, but they were still awesome. Didnt use frozen fruit, which was actually a positive in this situation, instead for fresh blueberries. And, to soak up the residual milkgurt, I threw in some frosted wheat shreddies.

 

Haven't had a breakfast that awesome in a long time.

Made them too last night: Instant Oats, Almond Milk, Vanilla Whey Protein, and a couple frozen strawberries. Once I get better with the amount for each it's gonna be a new staple, cuz that was delish already.
