Meals & Ingredients

  • Does Ritual Meals offer microwavable meals?

    Yes! In February 2021, we switched all of our postpartum meals to fresh format, never frozen, so that you are able to enjoy your meals as soon as they arrive on your doorstep! Your postpartum meals require no prep and can be reheated in the microwave in under 3 minutes. These meals can also be reheated on the stove top or in the oven, if you prefer. 

    Reheating instructions for plated meals arriving in 100% compostable fiber trays:

    • Microwave: Remove the clear lid (also 100% compostable, made from plant starch), and microwave the fiber tray with your meal in it.

    • Stove top: Remove your meal from the tray and heat in a medium-sized pot or pan on medium-low heat for 6-8 minutes until hot.

    • Oven: Remove your meal from the tray and heat in an oven-safe pan or cookie sheet at 350-F for 10-15 minutes until hot.


    Reheating instructions for soups and stews arriving in glass jars:

    • Microwave: Pour the soup or stew into your favorite microwave-safe bowl and head until hot.

    • Stove top: Pour the soup into a medium-sized pot or pan and heat on medium-low until hot.

  • Do you cater to specific diet plans?

    We don't currently offer postpartum meals sponsored by a specific diet plan like Keto or Paleo, but that doesn't mean our meals won't qualify for those plans. As a general rule, our postpartum food is:

    • Organic or pesticide free
    • Grass-fed or pasture-raised
    • Low gluten
    • No refined sugars
    • Non-GMO

    Check out our menu to see if our menus fit your needs.

  • Are your products organic?

    Our products are nearly all organic or pesticide free. Because Ritual Meals is a subscription service, our menus change each week. We curate our postpartum menus based on what’s available seasonally from our suppliers, our community of local farms and ranches. While our products are nearly all organic or pesticide free, that is not something we can guarantee for every meal at this time.

    We always strive to ensure that our postpartum meals, snacks, and teas are consistently high quality and clean as possible for our mamas and babies!

  • Do you offer low calorie and low carbohydrate options?

    Due to our postpartum nutritional philosophy, we aren’t offering any “low calorie” or “low carbohydrate” products at this time. We believe that the first year of postpartum is a crucial period for replenishing your nutrient stores, which can support physical recovery and health over the long term.

  • Can I repeat a meal from a previous menu?

    We love hearing about your favorite meals, and do our best to repeat customer favorites! If you really like a dish, be sure to review it by letting us know at, so that our chefs can get a sense of what you’ve loved. Since our menus change each week due to what is seasonally available from our local farms and ranches, we can’t guarantee a repeat meal but we’ll always make an effort!

  • Do you offer vegetarian options?

    We are not currently offering vegetarian options, but we are working to offer that as soon as possible. While our meals occasionally also qualify as vegetarian or vegan, we do not guarantee options for weekly vegetarian or vegan subscriptions.

  • How does Ritual Meals approach animal welfare?

    We are committed to responsible business practices including the humane treatment of animals. We only source animals that are grass-fed or pasture-raised, and we make an effort to visit all of our farms and ranches in person. We work in close collaboration with our suppliers to ensure that they are following industry-aligned animal welfare standards.

  • How long do I have to reheat the meals?

    Check your reheating instructions on your meal container for the recommended number of days the meal should be reheated after delivery. For guidance on proper ingredient storage, please see: [How should I properly store and handle my meals?].

    We recommend enjoying the postpartum meals in the order they are presented on the menu, for optimal freshness.

  • How do you handle food that contains allergens (like nuts, eggs, and soy)?

    All of our food is prepared and cooked in kitchens that also process eggs, milk, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat and soy. Our kitchens are not certified allergen-free.

    If you have a specific allergy or dietary need and are wondering if you can enjoy our postpartum meals, please email our Wellness Team at

  • What is Ritual Meals?

    Ritual Meals is a postpartum meal delivery service. Our signature postpartum meal delivery product is The Postpartum Program, which includes meals, snacks, and teas shipped weekly to your doorstep. Customers receive orders with all the fresh meals, snacks, and teas you need to enjoy nourishing postpartum food prepared by our chefs. We save you the time and energy of going to the grocery store, finding new recipes, meal planning, and portioning.

    Our talented chefs work with our Wellness Team to create new menus each week for you, based on what’s seasonally available from our community of local farms and ranches. We use the highest quality ingredients which are organic or pesticide free produce and grass-fed or pasture-raised animals.

  • What are the benefits of postpartum food and Ritual Meals?

    We understand that, as a new mom, you've got one of the hardest jobs in the world—so we created The Postpartum Program to help you heal and feel your best after giving birth. Our postpartum meals are nutritionally designed to support your physical recovery, energy levels, hormonal balance, milk supply and quality, and mood. At Ritual Meals, we are serious about supporting your postpartum nourishment and postpartum wellness journey. Everything we cook is made with the highest quality, whole food ingredients, good for you and your baby, whether or not you are breastfeeding.

    Our postpartum nutrition philosophy is focused on food as medicine.

    Our postpartum meals include both plated food and soups and stews which are more easily digestible and improve absorption of essential minerals and vitamins that the body needs to repair, restore, and fortify after birth or surgery. Grass-fed and pasture-raised animal stock are the base of all of our soups and stews, supplying essential nutrients, lean protein, and collagen to boost energy, support and heal connective tissues, and support healthy metabolism.

    If you are breastfeeding, our postpartum meals can provide measurable benefits for your milk supply and quality. Our postpartum meals often include galactagogues (ingredients which support milk supply and quality), including flax seeds, oats, tahini, brewer’s yeast, and more. We also avoid ingredients that could be associated with colic or sensitivities for breastfed babies, including cruciferous vegetables, garlic, and hot peppers.

    * This program is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. We recommend that you consult with your doctor prior to starting this program if you have a medical condition or are taking any prescription medication or nutritional supplements.

  • How much does Ritual Meals Cost?

    The Postpartum Program at Ritual Meals is priced starting at $176 per week. Meal frequency per week can be customized, which changes the cost of the program. As well, if you opted into our Subscription option, you can save up to 10% each week and receive free delivery with promo code FREESHIPPING.  Customize your postpartum plan to view prices.

  • What kinds of ingredients does Ritual Meals use?

    All meals are made to order and made from scratch with the highest quality ingredients. We prioritize local and organic produce and use only meat sourced from local farms that sustainably and humanely raise their animals. Our animals are always grass-fed or pasture-raised. Our produce is plant rich, organic or pesticide-free, low gluten, no refined sugars, and non-GMO.

    Organic or pesticide-free, whole, unprocessed foods are both more nutritive and more flavorful. We thoughtfully pair ingredients based on complementary benefits. For example, these pairings—lentils and red bell pepper, sesame and salmon, pasture-raised eggs and leafy greens, and chicken and quinoa—allow you to absorb more nutrients and experience their healing benefits.

  • What if I have allergy or dietary needs?

    Due to the small size of our culinary team, we are currently unable to offer substitutions in our menus, which are set weekly. To receive weekly email notifications about our upcoming menus which lists our full ingredients, please subscribe to our newsletter below.

    Please note: our Postpartum Program is not intended for severe allergies. If you have any questions about how we can support your dietary needs, please reach out to our Wellness Team at

  • How do you keep food fresh in transit? What if I am not home?

    We pack the postpartum meals fresh with care using 100% recyclable, insulated boxes and drain safe gel packs designed to keep your food refrigerated on the way to your doorstep.

    We understand that when it comes to birth, timing may not always happen according to plan. We highly recommend recruiting the help of a friend, neighbor, or family member so that if you aren’t able to get to your food when it arrives at your doorstep, they can help you store it in the fridge until you're ready to enjoy them.

    The delivery driver should leave the package for you at your door with no signature required. We package our postpartum meals in 100% recyclable insulated liners with drain-safe gel packs, so that your food stays refrigerated in transit. If you have any concerns with the temperature or condition of your meals once delivered, please contact our Wellness Team at
