Our meals & nutrition
How long do the meals stay fresh?
Your meals have a shelf life of 4-5 days when stored in the refrigerator.
How do you heat the meals?
All of our meals come fully prepared. They can be reheated in a microwave or on a stove top in less than 5 minutes. For most meals (salads are the exception), we recommend reheating your meal on the stove top for best results, ideally with a non-stick pan and olive oil to keep food from sticking to the pan.
How much food is in each meal?
All of our meals are designed to feed one person, however, we have our family-style meals that can feed 2-4 people depending on how hungry you are.
Is there anything a pregnant woman shouldn't eat?
You can eat all of our meals - they are made fresh daily and are full of vitamins and nutrients. Some Mama's start eating our meals towards the end of their pregnancy because they're too tired to cook.
Can I eat these meals even If I’m NOT pregnant and/or postpartum?
While recipes produced by The Sweet Pea are generally geared towards women who are pregnant and/or postpartum, these recipes have exceptional benefits for individuals in any stage of life. These recipes are clean, nutritious, and organic and can be classified as “Better For You Food” than the standard restaurant alternative. With that said, we at The Sweet Pea believe every individual should treat their bodies with care, so with that said, anyone is welcomed and encouraged to indulge in our finest recipes that provide everything you need for clean, healthy, and nutrient dense meals. Each stage of life requires optimal nutrition to support brain health and overall wellness. That is why we have worked diligently to bring to you “Better For You Food”. Whether you are pregnant, postpartum, or have never been either, these recipes have vitamins, minerals, and provide generally superior nutrition when compared to the average choice of food.
Do I have to be home for delivery?
If you aren't home when the delivery is made, that’s totally fine! The shipping carrier will leave your meals at your doorstep. We encourage you to refrigerate the meals as soon as you receive them. Please be sure to specify your delivery instructions (access codes, location to leave meals, etc) in your cart notes.
Why are your meals more expensive than others on the market?
It's not about being inexpensive! We could certainly lower the price, but then our meals would lose their value. They wouldn't embody the essence of having a personal chef who creates wholesome, high-quality dishes. Our meals wouldn't be made from grass-fed, pasture-raised, wild-caught, organic, or locally sourced ingredients. Instead, they would be loaded with preservatives, artificial ingredients, and unhealthy components. That's just not what The Sweet Pea stands for. We believe in providing a unique culinary experience that nourishes both your body and soul.
We want to be transparent here: The Sweet Pea will never strive to become the most affordable option in the market. And to us, that is something truly wonderful! We genuinely care about the ingredients we carefully select and remain committed to our identity as chefs, nutritionists, food enthusiasts, and health advocates.

Sugar + Honey
While The Sweet Pea recognizes the value of consuming meals low in added sugar, the added sugar in many of The Sweet Pea’s recipes is from the 100% Organic Raw Honey that is actually naturally occurring. We understand this may be confusing for consumers but we assure our consumers that while raw honey is made by nature and no sugars are added during its production, consuming pure honey contributes added sugars to the diet.
