Harnessing the power of real food, to feel better

Hello!  My name is Jan Steele, aka « La Goose ». 

Based in the beautiful Cévenne mountains, near Montpellier (France), I am a Nutritional Therapy Consultant, cooking instructor, and allergen-friendly vacation host.

In short, I help people learn to harness the power of
real food, to feel better.

I coach people to adopt (or better adhere to) a specific diet
(namely, gluten-free, Paleo, or AIP); I invite people into my
100% gluten-free kitchen to reclaim healthful culinary traditions; I host people for holidays in our B&B, allowing them to discover this beautiful region, while at the same time ensuring that their food restrictions and sensitivities are respected to a T.

The Bed & Breakfast

Come and replenish your energies in the beautiful Cévenne mountains.  At my “table d’hôtes”, I’ll make sure that your chosen diet — gluten-free, Paleo, or AIP — is respected to a T.

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.

Work with me to learn new techniques and recipes that will help you feel better in the day-to-day.

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 don’t eat
some kind of bread or noodle at every meal!  😉

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!!

“Mind blown.”

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💕


“Beyond Happy!”

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!
