cottage cheese or casein shake?

Celorza and bid david are always on point with their advice. Ive done research on what they were referring to (how many meals in a day is ideal etc. in relation to CHO) and ive found that unless you exercise multiple times throughout the day (i.e 4-8hrs between sessions) then conuming food post-exercise asap is ideal to maximise muscle glycogen stores however if time between workouts is 20-24hrs+ then it doesnt matter when you get your macros in.
This is very broad and doesnt go into detail, but that is the jist of it.

I personally always pick solid food over supplements if available, there are other other ingredients in cottage cheese beside the protein content and these probably don't exist in casein powders at least not in a bio available form.

I could be a little off but their both good before bed so just go with what ur feeling that night doesn't have to be one or the other.. Cottage cheese is good n good for u. But If ur in the mood for something chocolate or vanilla go with shake ..

I do anywhere from 1/2lb to 1lb of 1-2% Friendship cottage cheese (pot-style,small curd or large curd) with a couple stevia packets and cinnamon (to taste). It's like a healthy desert that I can eat every night and still cut fat.
Sometimes I put a scoop of the same mixture onto a toasted slice of P28 bread. I highly suggest trying this out. I got a few CC haters to change their minds with that combo.

I cant stand CC so the casein shake is what I stick with. I usually only get about 6 hrs of sleep a night and when I wake up I still feel pretty full. but, to each their own I guess.

I mix 1 scoop of casein protein (chocolate for optimal flavor gains) with some egg beater, mix it up in a mug and microwave it for a minute. Makes a tasty lava cake-esque brownie
