I have one like a snack. If it works for you, then do it. But, the body is rebuilding on off days, so the extra protein would be really helpful. Do you get enough protein from non-shake sources ('real food')?

If you can meet your protein requirements without a shake, then I think that's best. It doesn't really matter so long as it's only a shake or two with < 30g of protein.

Get as much as you can from good quality food sources. Sometimes, however, a shake is just quick and easy and there is nothing wrong with that.

Absolutely!!! You should have protein shakes everyday! Whey in the morning is important to feed those hungry muscles fast after a long 8 hours of fasting and through the day in between your whole food meals you should down protein shakes to keep your protein intake high high high! 1.5 grams per pound of body weight or even a little more on training days!
