I strive for one gram of protein per pound of body weight. I also drink lots of water and eat lots of vegetable and fruit.
To answer your question, I rely on whole foods as much as possible. But if I need to up my protein intake, yes I will drink a shake on rest days. Remember, rest days are when your body heals and becomes stronger from your training. So nutrition is a 24/7 proposition.
