Modern Table
Loves Beans

Beans have iron, zinc,
folate, potassium, and other
great nutrients.

Beans are nice to other plants.
They are the only vegetable
that put nitrogen back into
the soil, helping other
plants grow.

SO WHAT’S SO GREAT
ABOUT BEANS?

Beans are high in plant-based protein, making
them a lower fat, less expensive, and more
sustainable option than animal protein.

The USDA considers beans both a protein
and a vegetable, because they fit the
requirements for both food groups. They’re
two healthy foods in one!

Beans are high in fiber, which can help lower choles-
terol and control blood sugar levels. While they’re not
a “wonderful fruit” like the rhyme suggests, the fiber in
beans also helps regulate the digestive system.

Gulbin

Chief Mom

  1. What do you do at work?
    I work with a passionate team to bring delicious, nutritious and easy to make real foods to market so we can all have better food experiences and more possibilities that fit our modern life. And we know our modern lives can get a bit crazy at times!
  2. What’s the best gift you’ve ever gotten?
    All the ones (mainly in artwork form) that are from my kids. They are 4 and 7 and can be quite creative especially in their stick figure expressions of me.
  3. What’s the most surprising thing you’ve ever done?
    Bungee jumped off a bridge with Jennifer. I do not remember any professional equipment being used. Just a towel and a rope tied around our legs and…off you go.

Jennifer

Marketing Maven

  1. What do you do at work?
    Make PowerPoint slides – kidding! I tell stories about products people love.
  2. What does your ideal Saturday look like?
    Sleeping in! But my 3 kids never let that happen.
  3. What’s the most surprising thing you’ve ever done?
    Bungee jumped off a 150 foot bridge tied to Gulbin.

Elizabeth

Mom of All Trades

  1. What do you do at work?
    A little bit of everything! I work on all the little details that make our brand happen, from negotiating contracts to deciding what types of products we should make next.
  2. How do you make your Modern Table?
    With a wooden spoon in one hand, a toddler-helper on each hip and some classic tunes on the stereo – we love to listen to Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin when we cook.
  3. What’s the most surprising thing you’ve ever done?
    I shaved my head. The summer before my senior year in college, I was working with a bunch of kids who were undergoing chemotherapy. The girls were very self-conscious about losing their hair, so I wanted them to see that it could be “cool” to have no hair, and to feel good about themselves during that scary time.

Jamie

Deliciousness Director

  1. What do you do at work?
    I create our flavors and recipes, making delicious dishes that taste good and are good for you too.
  2. What’s the best gift you’ve ever gotten?
    My engagement ring from my husband…that was the best day ever!
  3. Night on the town or evening in?
    Night on the town. I’m energized by being with other people and really enjoy going out and trying something new, whether it is a new experience or a new food. Of course, I still like to be home by my very early bed time…I require lots of beauty sleep!

Katherine

Brand Buff

  1. What do you do at work?
    I bring the Modern Table brand to life, sharing our products with the world through sampling, events, and online.
  2. What does your ideal Saturday look like?

  3. What’s your favorite vacation spot?
    It’s a tie between Glacier National Park in Montana (for the hiking and views) and Vietnam (for the food!).

Curt

Rainmaker

    I share my excitement with our retailers. It’s my job to make sure Modern Table is available in your favorite stores. Know a store where we need to be? E-mail me: curt@moderntable.com.
  2. What’s the best meal you ever had?
    Fresh crab, seafood stew and salmon outside on an island in British Columbia during a fishing trip.

    Threw out ceremonial first pitch at an A’s game in 1990.

Michelle

Brand Evangelist

  1. What do you do at work?
    I help spread the word about Modern Table and why we exist.
  2. What does your ideal Saturday look like?
    Sleeping in, playing tennis, stopping by the farmer’s market, dining out at a new restaurant, and ending the night with dessert and wine.
  3. Watch sports or play sports?
    Both, but I’m a far better spectator than a player. 🙂
  4. How do you make your Modern Table?
    With a side of broccoli and hot sauce. Lots of hot sauce, preferably the green tabasco.

Is Modern Table Meals non-GMO?

Yes! Our bean pasta meal starters are Non-GMO Project Verified. Our meal kits are non-GMO and in the process of getting verification.
