MBG: What's your favorite source of protein?

Bob Harper, The Biggest Loser: I eat a lot of beans, tempeh, quinoa, Green pea & Hemp protein. I always make a green drink and throw in plenty of hemp to get my protein.

Brendan Brazier, Thrive Diet: Hemp is a good one. Even just greens. Spinach and kale are 45% protein. Chlorella and spirulina are about 65%.

Rip Esselstyn, Engine 2 Diet: Greens and beans!!

Rich Roll, Ultraman: Quinoa, hemp, lentils, almonds, beans & brussels sprouts. Yes, they are all great sources of protein, believe it or not.

Mike Anderson, Rave Diet: All foods have protein, so I don't have a favorite source. I don't worry about it and I get plenty just by eating a 100% plant-based diet.
