I got the crazy idea of putting together a quick, freestyle, Christmas episode wherein I could give, perhaps, a few folks out there a simple Green Neighbour Christmas gift, AND give some folks an opportunity to give each other a Christmas gift as well.
As my gift, I thought I would share the secret to a filling, satisfying vegan breakfast.

Have you ever wondered, "How on Earth could a 1°C increase in global temperature make any kind of difference?"
Well, if you have, you're not alone.
