Shakes for me are a dietary break, because the ones I use taste good. They are also a carrier for the other powders I take such as creatine and fiber, and a thick protein shake is perfect if you take tons of pills like me (4xBCAA, 5-10x omega-3's, 3xZMA's and an animal pak with something like 10 pills).
When it comes to real protein that I want for my muscles, it's all about meat.
