I stopped eating oatmeal for a little while because I was beginning to find it a little boring.

But it occurred to me that any food that seems boring offers the perfect blank canvas for a creative twist. In this case, the oatmeal is fortified with protein powder, and dressed with a delicious peaches and cream topping using fresh seasonal peaches and Thai coconut cream. You can also use nectarines or plums. It will make an ordinary breakfast or an ordinary day a little more special.
