Paperback It was going to be the trip of a lifetime. An enchanting trek through the Guatemalan jungle, viewing the mystical Mayan Ruins, a breath-stealing sunset from atop an ancient temple, a magical entourage of a million fireflies. Then suddenly our wonderful adventure became a nightmare. What followed was a roller coaster of hope and despair that would span the longest days of my life. As we frantically fought for my wife’s life, we found ourselves far from the necessities we took for granted at home. Amid the heartbreaking twists and turns, though, were encounters with brave and selfless people who made a lasting impression during a horrific time. Without Explanation is a true story. It’s a story of anticipated adventure and remarkable courage, of heartache and disbelief, and of hope and fear. And at its very core, it’s at once a life-altering tragedy and a story of love and devotion.

What On Earth Giveaway Hop:Imagine food that can be made ahead of time for convenience, then mixed and matched to create colorful perfectly portioned meals that are both healthful and flavorful. Switch It Up lets you discover how the concept of compartmentalizing can help you prepare balanced meals for every day of the week. This book includes 50 nutritious and delicious, quick and simple recipes that can be combined in any number of ways. Each recipe is made up of readily available ingredients. Learn how to pair different flavors and textures while developing a palate for healthful food combinations. Healthy eating starts with understanding balance. For instance, in Asian cultures, the majority of the meal is made up of vegetables, with much less animal or seafood protein than we are used to in the West. Indeed, anything with legs or fins is generally considered a flavor enhancer rather than the main course. Additionally, the reader can decide to enjoy “Raw Kale with Roasted Sweet Potato Salad” as a full meal or as a part of a meal, if they want to pair the salad with other foods, for example. Lastly, desserts are largely absent, fresh fruit or a simple cup of hot tea or herbal infusion is encouraged at the end of the meal to aid digestion.
