1-Yes, adding it to any food would be beneficial. I usually smother my egg whites in it.
2-Think about it. After mastication, the digestive process takes up to three hours to fully digest food. 5pm turns into 8 pm. I could see him ingesting it a few hours before he hits the weights at 10pm, but you have to remember that your metabolism starts slowing down at night. It'll be twice as hard to burn the calories and even after an intense workout, some of it will turn to fat.
Of course I don't think it's anything to worry about. It's only a few tablespoons. But, as a rule of thumb, I never take in any carbs/fats past 5 pm. From then on it's veggies(carbs), and lean meat (chicken breasts).
