If you’ve been on gym TikTok or, ‘Gymtok’ anytime in the past year, you know all about the phenomenon of hitting your protein goals everyday. According to a lot of popular fitness influencers, you are encouraged to intake 0.36 grams of protein per pound of body weight. As a college student, it can be hard to achieve that daily goal as sometimes it is much quicker and easier to just throw a meal in the microwave. It also may be hard to cook in a shared kitchen or small dorm space. Two items I believe are essential to cooking great food are, an air fryer and a rice cooker. These two can easily be stored and used in a small dorm room, making cooking a whole lot easier.
Here are some fast and easy TikTok recipes to get your protein in!
