Pillow, ClaudiaFeaturing Claudia Pillow, Chief Nutrition Officer, Hail Merry

Describing her diet as “healthy foodie leaning paleo,” Hail Merry’s Chief Nutrition Officer Claudia Pillow, Ph.D., has been happily living gluten-free for more than 11 years. Her diet consists of lots of fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, sustainable seafood, organic poultry, grass-fed meat, lentils and good fats like virgin coconut oil and olive oil. A typical breakfast may be an organic egg, cheese and avocado omelet with a slice of homemade gluten-free bread and a green smoothie.
