Back To School Review & Giveaway #4- The EasyLunchbox System *CLOSED*

I have yet to begin to pack school lunches. That all changes next week when Alex starts all day 5k. In my search to find an awesome lunchbox for him, I found the EasyLunchbox System.

About Us
KELLY LESTER is the owner, creator, and mom behind Easylunchboxes.com. Though she is a singer and actress who can also turn a mean cartwheel, juggling is not one of her skills — except, of course, when it comes to her personal life. During the last two decades she has also been an entrepreneur, wife, and mother of three.
A graduate of UCLA's theatre department, Kelly has appeared in dozens of plays and musicals in the Los Angeles area. Kelly left show business for almost twelve years to found and run Art Plates, her own highly-successful gift manufacturing business and raise her three girls. Her handcrafted switchplates and soaps were sold in hundreds of museum stores across the country and direct to consumers via the Art Plates website.
After selling that business in 2006, Kelly defied the old adage that there are no second acts. In fact, sometimes there are actually many different acts. Since returning to performing, Kelly has appeared in a number of stage productions, films and TV shows. More about Kelly’s performing career HERE.
In her spare time, she enjoys listening to obscure musicals, and has an obsession with graphic design (especially fonts) and digital scrapbooking. When not in front of the computer, Kelly can be found in the kitchen preparing healthy lunches and dinners for her family (although she actually hates to cook and is actively engaged in teaching her daughters to take over the household culinary needs.)
Easylunchboxes.com was born out of Kelly’s innate ability to do things efficiently while on a shoestring budget, and her desire to send her daughters to school with simple, healthy food, with little to no extra packaging or ingredients. Her past struggle with weight control inspires her to teach and model healthy eating habits for her children, and has fueled her dedication to always send them off to school with a great lunch. Read about Kelly's healthy lifestyle on MOM TRENDS.
Kelly combined her self taught business-savvy with her natural inclination to think “what would other parents want?” — to develop the perfect lunchbox system. She is thrilled and proud to share her Easylunchboxes and lunch bags with other families who will benefit by their simple design, great price, and amazing functionality. Additionally, by promoting the waste-free lunch movement, EasyLunchboxes.com is helping the planet one lunch box at a time.
As a creative mom who knows how to makeover a lunch box, Kelly was recently hired to share tips and promote lunch box ingredients by Hellman's and Nestle, appearing in TV news segments seen across the country.
Kelly has been married to actor Loren Lester since 1988. They live in Woodland Hills, CA with their three daughters, Jenny, Lily, & Julia, and their dog, Albany.
The Best Lunchbox System You Will Find!
Pack waste-free lunch boxes fast with our single-lid, 3-compartment, bento-style plastic food containers. Affordable lunch box containers and cooler bags for work or school lunches. This is the best lunchbox system to turn your kids lunch ideas into school lunches they can’t resist, or make your own healthy meal ideas a snap to pack for work. My EasyLunchbox System pairs food-safe reusable lunch containers with roomy cooler bags. It's the green, sack lunch alternative — sized just right for kids and adults. Our lunch boxes allow you to pack lunches quickly, using your own healthy lunch recipes. EasyLunchboxes.com was born out of my response to disturbingly unhealthy school lunch programs. I resolved to send my kids to school with nutritious meals, using little to no wasteful packaging. And though I'm very concerned with my family's health and nutrition, as a busy mom, I like to spend as little time as possible in the kitchen. I'm all about fresh, healthy and FAST.

A Streamlined Solution for Packing Lunch Boxes
As a Mom of 3, I knew there had to be a timesaving method for packing lunches. Rather than use a myriad of individual plastic food storage containers and wasteful disposable baggies, I thought, “What if I had one reusable lunch container for everything?” So I created the EasyLunchbox container — a terrific Bento box alternative; easier and better, as there’s only one lid that fits securely on top of all 3 compartments. Even if you have a house full of picky eaters with individualized lunch menus or dietary restrictions, the different-colored lids make it easy to keep track of who gets what. No matter what lunch recipes you decide to try, the 3 sections ensure healthy portion sizes. And small children won’t need help opening up these portable lunch containers. They stay closed, but little fingers find them quick and easy to open.

Adults Benefit from Packing Healthy Lunch Recipes
We offer the best lunchbox solution and creative lunch menu ideas for adult and kids’ lunches. If you're trying to eat healthier, the cafeteria at work can be dangerous. A delicious packed lunch could help prevent you from hitting the french fries or purchasing wallet-draining deli sandwiches! Prepare healthy alternatives at home and save money too. The EasyLunchbox System allows most of your time in the kitchen to be spent preparing, rather than packing your meals. EasyLunchboxes are great for portioning servings out in advance. They're also convenient to fill with leftovers from dinner — just microwave at work!

Easy Lunch boxes Save Time!
Here’s what I do: I put the open lunch boxes on my kitchen counter, prepare and cut all the food at once, and then plop the healthy lunches I’ve made, assembly line style, into the open food containers. I close each lunch box quickly with it’s one lid and I’m done! In the morning, I take the lunch containers out of the fridge and put them into my soft-sided 6-can cooler type insulated lunch bags. Additionally I’ll put an ice block, extra snacks, yogurt, or a thermos of soup, and a drink, all in the lunch bag!

Our Lunch Boxes are Eco-Friendly
They're BPA-free, SAFE and environmentally friendly, too! You'll find it easy to 'go green' by using EasyLunchboxes for a waste-free lunch. In my house, we keep a few sets of Easy Lunch Boxes. This way, I pack lunches for my family in one set of containers, while the other lunchboxes are in the dishwasher! Easy! No more messy (and environmentally unfriendly) plastic bags, good only for a single use. Easy Lunch Boxes accommodate different types of food, and our three compartment plastic food containers can hold a sandwich and two side dishes. Now, if you have 3 kids like I do, you’ll appreciate that there are only 6 pieces in your dishwasher every night instead of the 18 different plastic bottoms and lids you’d have to use if you were to pack the same lunches! What a timesaver, now that you won’t have to dry and put away all those mismatched food container pieces!

The Easy Lunchbox System Saves Space
These are space-saving lunch boxes because they nest inside each other when not in use. They stack neatly on top of each other and take up very little space inside your refrigerator if you like to prepare lunches the night before.
Alex is so excited to use these, that he's been bugging me for days to have a picnic.
