Our Story

Inspired by a life-long passion for health and nutrition, Derek Van Atta, the creator of Solay Superfood, is continually living his commitment of promoting optimal living and vitality. Over the last 25 years, Derek has explored healing traditions from around the world. Some of these include: Naturopathic Medicine, European Traditional Herbal Medicine, the time-tested systems from India of Ayurveda, the cutting edge practices within Functional Medicine, the ancient and modern principles of Chinese medicine, and Central American shamanic practices. Currently, he continues to research and refine formulas that blend these diverse healing modalities into revitalizing foods in a balanced and flavor-bursting way. After dedicating several years to the corporate world of Silicon Valley, Derek began to transfer that corporate intensity into areas of nutrition, yoga, meditation, and exercise.The dramatic improvements in daily well-being that Derek experienced whenever he fed his body these superfoods, the more he became inspired to develop his own superfood recipes.

Product Descriptions

Meal Replacements

Solay Superfood offers 4 unique meal replacement protein powders. Solay meal replacement powders are taste good, feel good superfood! Our protein powders contain unique synergistic blends of adaptogens, greens, pure vegan protein from sprouted brown rice and hemp hearts, raw cacao, grounding roots, medicinal mushrooms and invigorating spices.

Pacha Protein

Containing nearly 12 g of protein per serving, Pacha Protein is a synergistic blend of plantbased protein, supergreens, adaptogens, and medicinal mushrooms. With subtle hints of cinnamon and vanilla, Pacha Protein is one of our most popular meal replacement powders. Pacha Protein is named after Pacha, or Earth in Peruvian, because this planet has given us truly amazing plant-based protein sources. We've created a synergistic blend of 8 essential amino acids that is highly bio-available. Pacha Protein is your go-to meal replacement and protein shake when you want something quick, easy, and nourishing.

Suggested Use: Add 3-5 tablespoons to your favorite milk or water. We find that almond or coconut milks taste the best! If you feel like being creative, try adding Pacha Protein to your favorite smoothie recipe or adding a banana for extra carbs. For healthy fats, try adding chia seeds, coconut or hemp oils. The possibilities are endless with this great tasting protein powder.

Cacao Plus!

Infused with the top supergreens, adaptogenic roots and herbs, raw cacao and plant-based protein, Cacao Plus! offers a variety of health benefits for everyone that range from mood enhancement to optimal athletic performance.

Since there is already an ideal amount of bioavailable protein, adding milk is preferred for taste but not necessary. For an active or busy lifestyle, we suggest adding an extra tablespoon to maintain focus and energy. For some, the combination of raw cacao, polysaccharides of goji berry, and the amino acid profile of some of the sea vegetables might feel slightly more stimulating than you are used to with a typical protein drink.
