"in the BFFM he says that drinking is good if your in a hurry but its better to eat a piece of chicken or lean meat then it is to use a meal replacement drink."
I'm thinking you're getting too hung up on the details. There's a lot of options (ie protien powder vs whole food). Obviously some of them are better than others, but if you're in a pinch, or needing extra supplementation, then powders are the way to go.
I think Tom was alluding to not using it as your sole source of protein all the time.
As for the bars - never tried to make them, but I have made Tom's Pumpkin Protien Pancakes... num!
I also like Cliff Builder bars, in a pinch/when traveling, because I can identify all the ingredients in them. Peanut butter is my fave. ;) It's got a higher carb count, but I'd rather have that than extra fillers/artifical ingredients.
Keep on with the questions!!!
