KELLY LESTER is the owner, creator, and mom behindEasylunchboxes.com and the host of the new musical web series “Let's Do Lunch!” 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.
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 has been seen across the country in TV news segments featuring this topic.
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.
Do you ever struggle with how to arrange the lunchbox to fit everything? Tired of having to wash 4 containers just to not mix your food? Easy Lunchbox is here to help.
The 3 part containers are really helpful with packing leftovers. My husband works in a factory, and they offer refrigerators and microwaves, so I can pack him just about anything. I do however worry about all the additives in processed foods, So I love the fact I can now pack the healthy stuff he will actually eat.
He loves the fact his sandwiches aren't smashed, because no matter how hard I tried to organize there was always something that was in the wrong place, Easy Lunchboxes has made my life easier. I can now quickly pack my husbands lunch in a container that means no more messing with containers that may not seal just right and then make a mess, or not being able to find the top to the container I need to squeeze in a dipping sauce or something.
We have used ours several times, and it hold up great. I love how easy it is to use the containers, and the fact they are microwavable as well as dishwasher safe is just a dream. I have discovered that the container is a little small though on those hot summer days if you wish to pack a Gatorade bottle as well as a couple bottles of water, but will have tons more use this winter when I pack him lots of leftovers of hot meals.
Easy Lunchboxes are also a great idea for the back to school shopping list.
