Hello and welcome!

Meet the RDs

Hello and welcome! My name is Sally Hammer and I am the owner of Nourished Roots. I am a credentialed Registered Dietitian and Functional Medicine Nutrition Specialist.

I provide in-person and telehealth nutrition consultations as well as corporate wellness services using a holistic approach. My vision of wellness focuses on each client’s unique needs and goals. I aim to help people work towards optimal health, through health coaching, motivational support, and always taking into account the root cause of every health concern. In addition to private counseling, I love working with community groups and organizations to increase access to health and nutrition information.

My interest in nutrition sparked while volunteering in developing and underserved communities. When I saw how access to healthcare can be hard to come by and costly, I realized the immeasurable value of  preventative health. I have seen the incredible power food and nutrition can have in supporting health and managing various health conditions.

I received a B.S. in Nutritional Sciences from Penn State University and then went on to complete my Dietetic Internship at Virginia Tech. I began my career providing nutrition counseling and community nutrition education as a dietitian in New Jersey. Since then I have received the Certificate of Training in Adult Weight Management Program by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

After a few years, I felt like I needed to dive deeper into the root cause of health concerns. In 2018 I completed my training to become a Functional Medicine Nutrition Specialist. I currently live in Denver, CO where I love being outdoors and enjoying the adventures of life with my husband Yoni.

Talia Adler, RD



Hello! My name is Talia Adler. I am a credentialed Registered Dietitian with an educational background in psychology.

Through my holistic approach, I help others achieve optimal health by adopting healthy habits into their life while providing support, accountability and motivation. I work under the assumption that health is a lifestyle and that identifying the root cause of health issues is the key to achieving balance, serenity and wellbeing. I help you work through and embrace the challenges that you will face while working toward your goals.

During my own health journey, I have found that nutrition can be one of the most powerful tools available to prevent, limit and treat disease. This includes physical and mental health issues as the body, mind and soul are invariably connected. Many of us, myself included, struggle with stress and various mental and physical issues that hinder our experience and functionality. I have been able to overcome these challenges through nutrition, herbal medicine, mindfulness practices, nature therapy and other natural tools. I have made it my mission to help others heal just as I have.

I received a B.S. in Dietetics from the University of Northern Colorado as well as a B.A. in Psychology from the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya, Israel. I am currently doing additional integrative training that includes Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurvedic Medicine and other holistic therapies. I have 10 years experience learning and working with other functional nutritionists and naturopaths and believe that in this field (and in life in general) one should never stop learning.

Nourish Yourself

Our Nutrition Philosophy


Our approach to nutrition focuses on nourishing your whole self: body, mind, and spirit. Together we will focus on how to nourish your unique and amazing body through individualized support. First and foremost, we will listen to your story, background, goals and past barriers to better health to gain a better sense of your needs. We’ll work together toward achieving your individual goals for a happy and balanced life.

As your nutrition coach, we keep the focus on adding health — not deprivation or diets. Our role is to motivate and help you succeed at a pace that works for you. Along the way we’ll develop clear and achievable goals, or action steps, for you to work on in between sessions. These goals help track your progression and make healthy lifestyle changes seem natural.

We understand there is complexity behind each individual’s needs. What works for you may be different than what works for your best friend, sister or co-worker. Whole food choices geared toward your specific needs can change your physical and mental health and are a large part of furthering your path to wellness. Through dietary monitoring and testing I am able to identify your unique nutrient and genomic (gene expression) makeup. In doing so, we can implement targeted food and nutrition interventions to optimize nutrient metabolism and lower your risk of chronic disease.

We also realize that in order to make change possible, you may need cooking and recipe support. When foods are not enough, reputable and safe supplements may be recommended to support optimal health.

7 Benefits of Working With a Dietitian

Nourish Holistically

Our dietitians focuses on nourishing the amazing you that already exists to flourish through nutrition and wellness interventions. This means taking the focus away from deprivation and looking at what we can add to support the healthiest version of you. Nourishing starts with the mind, body and spirit but continues on to the home, work place, and community.

Look at the Roots

The human body is complex and in constant communication with itself. A functional approach to nutrition knows every sign or symptom has a root cause. We look to find and bring balance to this root cause through nourishment, not just relieving the symptoms. For example, if you had a tack in your foot, would rather look to remove the tack or take a pill for the pain?

Support Through Goal Coaching

Real change doesn’t happen overnight. Along your wellness journey we will be there to help you identify goals for health and wellness as well as keep you accountable along the way. We move at a pace that is right for you and keeps you motivated.

Gain Hands-On Skills

Knowing what you need to do is important but knowing how is what creates change. We can tell you that your body might need more Vitamin A so you should eat more carrots and sweet potato but if you don’t know how to incorporate or prepare those foods into a meal it can be hard, if not impossible, to make the necessary changes. That’s why we make sure to offer services that can help you gain the skills needed to implement nutritional shifts.

Science Based Nutrition Strategies

When you meet with us, you can be sure you are getting the most up-to-date information on nutrition facts. While there may be contradicting articles on controversial topics, some articles may questionably funded, or promote a one-size-fits-all diet. Knowing that every body reacts to food differently, we know how to locate, interpret, and deliver scientifically-sound research that applies to your personal plan.

Dietitians are also able to debunk myths surrounding food by providing up-to-date information on the big picture, including nutrients, calories, serving sizes, food groups, labels, marketing tactics, food ingredients, allergies, interactions and how food is grown, manufactured, prepared, and cooked.


02 / Prepare

Personalized Plan

No two people are exactly alike, therefore neither are their nutritional needs. we will work with you to find the optimal nutrition plan.

Big Picture Emotional and Behavioral Change

Dietitians work with the personal and emotional aspects to nutrition by providing motivation and support to their clients. Because eating is so personal and often requires behavior change, it’s useful to have a trusted and resourceful health professional to talk with that will help you celebrate, solve and/or adjust any of the many things that may occur during your journey to achieving your health goals. If you find that eating healthy is too difficult in your daily schedule, one of our dietitians can help you find solutions that beat to your drum. We can provide useful resources that may assist you in reaching your full potential.

Tip of the Day

Even while maintaining a healthy diet, we still may need the additional support provided by a multi-vitamin. Many of the conventional foods we eat are grown in soil with depleted nutrients. Similarly, our body’s gut may be suffering an impaired ability to break down and absorb what nutrients our food does provide. We may also have developed various Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNP) on our genes that prevent our metabolic pathways from working optimally. A multi-vitamin can provide extra daily support to make sure your cells are getting the vitamins and minerals they need to work their best. Still, the only way to know what vitamins and minerals your body may be deficient in is through blood work. Work with Sally to make sure your nutrients are at optimal levels.
