I just love market morning. I love the fellow stall holders, they are such lovely people who are so passionate about whatever it is they are selling, and we look after each other. I love my weekly customers…see them every week is such a joy for me!

When I got home and unpacked I whipped up this Thai inspired banana blossom salad, I was starving (hence the not so flash photo today). This recipe serves one person.

Thai Banana Blossom Chicken Salad

  • 1 banana blossom
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 2 shallots
  • 120g cooked shredded chicken (or pork or prawns)
  • ¼ cup of coconut flakes
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut cream (let the can sit so you can scoop the concentrate off the top)
  • 1 tablespoon of fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chilli flakes

How to:

  1. Prepare the banana blossom (there are a few great youtube clips).
  2. Slice the shallots finely and place in a medium-sized bowl.
  3. Add the shredded chicken to the bowl along with the banana blossom and remaining ingredients.
  4. Get your hands into the bowl and work the ingredients until well combined.
  5. Serve…and eat…and say oh yum!


The Mackay Marina Run is on tomorrow, I’m almost sad that I’m not doing the half marathon this year. I’ve been so busy with getting my ‘secret’ plans happening and studying that I just haven’t had the time to fit the training in. Plenty more half marathons left in me yet so I’m not too disappointed, I’m doing the 5k corporate run with my CrossFit Mackay family instead 🙂


Yours in Health and Happiness
