I know there's the whole deal with the anabolic window, that suggests that because whey doesn't have to be digested, it goes straight to your muscles to repair them more efficiently as opposed to food that takes longer.

Sounds like BS to me but I just thought I'd make sure before I make the decision.

Ditch it or buy a new tub?
You don't need to worry about the anabolic window, but you should be eating when hungry.

I am thirsty after lifting, and so I am drinking I like to get protein in me. Kills 2 birds with one stone.

Anabolic window aside, whey protein is still convenient to have around. You could eat eggs which are cheaper. It really doesn't matter. Whey is still relatively cheap, like Solider said.
