Is consuming a shake with whole foods IN it consider a whole food? People say "eat whole foods vs shakes", i'm wondering if oats, peanut butter, stuff like that is considered whole food if it's blended up... thx

Yes, if those are included in your shake. They are whole foods. What there are referring to is getting your source of protein from things like chicken, or protein high foods.

Some people to get protein have like 3-5 shakes a day and over do it. So some suggest instaed of all those shakes, eat some whole food to get that protein instead.

Yes. Whole foods in a shake are still whole foods. Protein powders and other supplements are not considered whole foods.

Yeah, many people(fitness related) equate shake with some kind of powder mixed with milk or water. If you are just blending whole foods up, then yeah its whole food still, lol. Heck, when I was a youngin, a shake was milk and ice cream blended up (still is)
