The Best Portable Snacks

Laughing Cow Mini Babybell Cheese—Light

These little rounds of cheese are sealed in a hard wax coating that not only protects them, but makes them fun to open. But since unrefrigerated dairy can go bad, be sure to only pack these if you will be consuming them within a few hours.

Peanut Butter and Jelly

Unlike turkey or tuna, PB & J sammies won’t spoil (and we kind of think they taste good a bit soggy) so you can make one in the a.m. and eat it hours later. They also fill your body up with fiber and protein. Make a snack-sized portion with one slice of 100% whole grain bread, one teaspoon of strawberry preserves and one teaspoon of all-natural peanut butter. To be green (!) and keep your sandwich in top shape, carry it in a plastic container.

Kashi Tasty Little Chewies Fruit & Grain Bars

These bars are sturdy enough to hold up in your bag, but chewy enough to go down like candy, not cardboard. And with 4 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein in each bar, you won’t be hungry an hour later. Our fave flavor pumpkin pie comes with a real layer of pumpkin topped with pecans..

Justin’s Peanut Butter Squeeze Pack and Apple

Grab a sturdy apple and make it a more satisfying snack with one of these delicious peanut butter packs. They’re loaded with 7 grams of protein and come in fun flavors like chocolate and honey. Just don’t forget to bring a plastic knife (and pack it carefully!).

Sabra Fresh Roasted Red Pepper Hummus with Pretzel Crisps

With its hard plastic packaging (hummus on one side, pretzel crisps on the other), this snack is guaranteed not to smush even on the bumpiest bus rides. One container contains 3.5 servings of hummus, so you can share it with a friend!

Hershey Cacao Reserve Premium Dark Chocolate Truffles

These delectable truffles come in a pocket-sized tin container so they won’t melt in your bag. At only 35 calories and 2.5 grams of fat a pop, you can get the benefits of antioxidant-rich dark chocolate and satisfy your sweet tooth.

How to Express Yourself Through Vogue Fem—While Honoring the Community That Created It

"Who are you when you're voguing fem?" asks the choreographer and dancer Omari Wiles, father of the House of Oricci and founder of the dance company Les Ballet Afrik. "What energy is shaping your story?" In voguing, personal expression is the goal, and vogue fem one way to achieve it.

This flamboyant dance form has experienced a recent wave of mainstream visibility, thanks to the critically acclaimed TV drama "Pose," the hit HBO Max's competition show "Legendary" and, now, the proliferation of TikTok videos centered on voguing.

Sean Lew's New Film is Bound to Leave You Speechless

If you know Sean Lew (and let's be real—you should), you know that he pours his heart and soul into his craft. Born a star, Lew has danced alongside artists like Sia and Janet Jackson, choreographed for names like Justin Bieber and Meghan Trainor, and performed on two seasons on NBC's "World of Dance."

At only 19, Lew's worn more hats than your average human (or even superhuman), and yet he continues to build upon his long list of natural skills—by adding "producer" into the mix. This time around, he's focused on his own passion project. He produced, wrote, directed, choreographed, edited and even stars in his upcoming film II: An Unspoken Narrative, which also features some of our other fave dancers like Kaycee Rice, Zach Venegas and Bailey Sok, just to name a few.

More than just a dance video, and described as his "life's work put into motion," this experimental film fully encapsulates the past four years of Lew's life, depicting an unspoken narrative expressed through dance. There's no dialogue—everything is up for interpretation. Keep reading to get the inside scoop, and be sure to follow Lew at @seanlew as he continues to influence the world with his endless creative ventures.
