Jeanne David is the Founder, Head of Product Development and President of Outer Aisle Gourmet, LLC.
Jeanne is a born entrepreneur and loves creating ideas for new products. She started her first business at the age of ten! Jeanne founded several small businesses, the most successful of which brought a line of natural food products to market in Louisiana.
The idea for OAG’s cauliflower sandwich thins/tortillas and pizza crust was born from the decision by Jeanne and her husband, Dan, a few years ago to change the way they ate by cutting out sugar and processed carbs and increasing vegetables in their diets. To avoid the blandness that often goes along with eating healthy, Jeanne experimented with vegetables as a substitute for other ingredients in their favorite foods. Her two best creations were the cauliflower sandwich thins/tortillas and cauliflower pizza crust, since they allowed Jeanne and Dan to once again enjoy sandwiches, burgers, tacos, lasagna (with the cauliflower pizza crust substituted for lasagna noodles) and, best of all, pizza without the carb effects. They are excited to be able to provide these delicious plant-based substitutes for three of America’s favorite comfort foods.
Jeanne was the Executive Director of the Central Coast branch of the Arthritis Foundation before founding Outer Aisle Gourmet. Working with the Arthritis Foundation gave Jeanne a heightened awareness on the important effects of diet on overall health.
Jeanne was born and raised in New Orleans, the second youngest of thirteen children. She had an early love for sports of all kinds, cooking and babysitting her many nieces and nephews. One of her greatest joys and achievements is raising 4 sons. She started running as a teenager and has never stopped. Jeanne has run six marathons and numerous half marathons. She enjoys her run time with her close friends.
Jeanne was a Founder and President of the Board of Taste of Hope, a local non-profit formed by Jeanne and six close friends to raise funds supporting starving and disadvantaged orphans and widows in Mekelle, Ethiopia.
Jeanne is on Team World Vision. A running team that raises funds for clean water in third world countries.
Jeanne believes that giving back is one of the greatest privileges in life. She believes in supporting the work of many non-profits in the community and in particular, the William Sansum Diabetes Foundation and World Vision.
