Harnessing the power of real food, to feel better
Living well. Gluten-free. In France.
My goal is to provide an alternative vision of what is possible. You CAN live — and live well… even if you’re not eating a baguette every morning.
Do you experience digestive issues? …unexplained fatigue? …unstable energy levels? Do you suspect food sensitivities? Are you looking to go gluten-free, Paleo, or AIP?
Let me help you! I’ve had Celiac Disease all my life, and so have been living gluten-free, Paleo, and/or AIP since I was 4 years old.
The teaching kitchen
Looking to change how you eat? You’ll likely have to learn to cook differently! The sooner we leave industrial “food products” behind and adopt instead the habit of cooking for ourselves, the sooner we begin to feel better.
Come and learn new techniques and recipes that will help you feel better in the day-to-day.
Allergen-friendly holidays in the South of France
Come and replenish your energies in the beautiful Cévenne mountains. I’ll make sure that your chosen diet — gluten-free, Paleo, or AIP — is respected to a T.
What People are Saying
“Words cannot express…”
Words cannot express how important it is for all of us in the AIP community to come together, and to share a fabulous meal that we “didn’t have to worry about”, with folks who are on a similar journey. You were an excellent example of the kind of care and attention that needs to continue to be put into the food served in our restaurants. This was an extremely high-end luncheon — attention to detail, quality of tastes, thoughtful additions, just all of it incredible, as are you!!
We in Vancouver will miss you, that’s for sure. But let us all know where we’re going in France for our next vacation!
Mind blown. Can’t stop thinking about it, thank you for your thoughtfulness and advocacy for healing diet options- hope the world gets many more like you! France sure is about to win the jackpot 😊
“Feeling so grateful!!.”
Feeling so grateful!! I was thoroughly impressed with the high end presentation, outstanding flavours, number of options and “courses” and then to have the opportunity to share it with an amazing group of ladies!!….And the price! Jan, you outdid yourself and it is so greatly appreciated! Thank you💕
I just want to say how amazing this whole experience was. I even got a little misty eyed at one point. It was so nice to be in a room with like minded people and connect with you all. Also, Jan you are a miracle worker and the food was outstanding. Thank you so much for all of your hard work and love you put into this meal. Beyond Happy!!
“My kids have just been feasting on the petit fours!!!”
Jan I’ve been raving about your culinary awesomeness to everyone. What a fantastic lunch you put on, the whole experience was 1000%. Thanks so much for hosting this, it really was a TREAT!
I’m Jan Steele, otherwise known as “La Goose”. I’m based in the South of France, in the beautiful Cévenne mountains where I am a Nutritional Therapy Consultant, cooking instructor, and allergy-friendly vacation host.
Broadly speaking, I help people to better use food as a means
I accompany people who want to adopt or better adhere to a specific diet (GF, paleo, AIP) to improve their health; I run a teaching kitchen to help people reclaim healthful culinary traditions; I host individuals and groups to this beautiful region of France, ensuring that any and all dietary restrictions are respected to a “T” so that they can enjoy their holiday with confidence and peace of mind.
