You GUYS. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So many exclamation points are necessary here.
I am so excited to tell you all about a huge project that I’ve been working on for the last year… Sweet Peas Meals!
Maria and I have joined together to start a meal planning subscription service after hearing what you’ve been saying about weekly dinners, cooking the same thing over and over and not being inspired to cook balanced, delicious meals. The thing is: I TOTALLY GET THAT.
I get in ruts myself, making the same thing over and over. And I develop new recipes every week!
I am always on the lookout for new dinner ideas, easy snack ideas, heck – even lunch ideas!
Now that I have Max, I don’t WANT to spend an hour or two cooking dinner every night because I want to spend time with Eddie and him instead.
And I certainly, in no way, shape or form, can or want to spend hours meal prepping on Sundays. Talk about ruining the weekend.
That’s exactly what Sweet Peas is all about and why we wanted to start it. It’s totally for you if:
- You want to cook fantastic meals throughout the week but don’t know where or how to start, and don’t want to spend hours doing it.
- You already cook, but find yourself making the same things over and over and… over.
- You buy a ton of groceries every week with good intentions to make incredible meals, but end up tossing a lot of it, unused, at the end of the week. I get this. My crisper drawer is occasionally where veggies go to die.
- You are familiar with cooking but love having tons of IDEAS for new meals.
- You don’t want spend three, four or even two (!!) hours doing meal prep each week.
- You can’t figure out how many meals to make a week for your family and what the heck to do with leftovers or remaining ingredients.
We have put together an entire system to make meal planning FUN and EASY! While the main idea of our program is to serve your family (or yourself!) delicious, balanced dinners during the week, Sweet Peas is SO much more than that.
While Maria and I first came up with Sweet Peas last year, the whole program has been spearheaded by Jess, our content manager, who is absolutely amazing and has worked so hard to get our ducks in a row! The best part about the team of Sweet Peas is that we have three different lifestyles: Maria has a family of 4 and eats a vegetarian diet, I have a family of 3 and eat an “everything” diet, and Jess has a family of 2. We’ve spent countless hours coming up with a plan that works for all of us, where a few adaptations may be made.
And it gets better!
We offer a slew of optional breakfast and lunch ideas, if you’re into that sort of thing. We give you a super detailed shopping list that makes your time in the grocery store insanely efficient. We share a huge resource packet when you sign up – all of our favorite pantry staples and what not. New snack ideas each month that are easy and doable. The meal prep tips and tricks to do one day a week for an hour or less to make your life EASIER. Yes yes yes. And just exactly how to repurpose and use the ingredients you have in your fridge for the week. We share fun challenges too, along with brand new content each week in our newsletter.
Perhaps my most favorite part? An entertaining guide for holidays – and no, I don’t just mean Christmas. Our first one will go out with the August plan and give you all sorts of fun ideas for an end-of-summer Labor Day blast. PARTAY.
It is basically a DREAM.
I’d love if you’d head over to the Sweet Peas Meals site and check everything out – along with the three-day sample guide. You can follow us on instagram and facebook too! We have poured our heart and soul into this idea and we want to hear from you too. You can register for the plan over there where you’ll become a member of the Sweet Peas Community and your first program will go out next week, just in time for August 1st.
