We enjoyed our sunday family day. My five year old is really into baking and she asked if we can make banana bread. If I have a homed treat in front of me, I just don’t have that kind of willpower. So we decided to make a recipe we found off the beachbody blog. This recipe is fixate and clean eating friendly .
I was a little hesitant at first considering there is no sugar added aside from the sweetness of the bananas . The kids loved them!!! My husband enjoyed a few as well! These muffins can be used as a snack or for breakfast.

¼ cup raw honey

Transfer muffins to rack; cool.
I decided to give these delicious pita pizza’s a try. Lets just say I was so excited to add it into my week 3 meal plan. I got my two year old involved and had him help me mix the sauce together. It came out so good and both my husband and kids loved it!
Here is the recipe for the sauce! My son had a blast just helping me mix everything together. I was able to get all of this prepared in 10 minutes because I had the chicken pre made from the morning.
Makes 12 servings, about 2 Tbsp each
1/2 Purple container ( for those of you who follow fixate meal portions like me)
1/2 cup tomato paste
1/2 cup water
1/4 Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1 tsp ground black pepper
Here is how to make the pizza itself. Note that I didn’t use the red onions and you can pretty much add any type of veggie you would like.
1 (6½-inch) whole wheat pita
2 Tbsp. Maple BBQ Sauce
2 Tbsp. shredded mozzarella cheese
1 ⁄3 cup chopped cooked chicken breast
2 Tbsp. chopped red onion
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
2. Place pita on baking sheet. Top with Maple BBQ Sauce, cheese, chicken, and onion.
3. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
4. Sprinkle with cilantro; serve immediately.
** If you count your fixate portion containers , this is considered 2 Yellos, 1/2 Red, 1/2 Blue, and 1/2 Purple**
