The Green Goddess Sandwich

There’s a top #breadie competition going on in Vancouver right now between two local chefs. Their different recipes inspired me to create something unique, healthy and delicious of my own using Justin’s favourite, Arnold Bread (a new premium lineup on the west coast … total must try!!!). Who said grilled cheese has to be unhealthy?!? This greens infused super sandwich is savoury, cheesy & PACKED full of zesty greens!! You don’t need to sacrifice nutrition for taste with this green goddess of a sandwich …

    Where was it mentioned in the actual post that this recipe was vegan? I read grilled cheese, healthy, delicious, nutrition, tasty, Arnold’s bread…No matter, it looks tasty and healthy, mission of the post accomplished! Vegans will know to substitute the goat cheese. Let’s stop hatin’!

    Woah. Jo is one angry person for some weird reason… Funny how angry people get about someone they claim not to care about. Anywho… This sandwich looks delish! I think I may add some chicken to it ?. Lol

    Jo- go fly a kite where someone gives a hoot what you think. Stop hiding behind a keyboard you judgemental poor excuse for a human being. More people like Jillian and less hateful shit talkers like you and this earth would be a far better place. If her choices bother you so much STOP looking at her blog. I just read this and immediately want to slap you. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out, better yet why don’t you ride on out of here on the piece of spinach you rode in on.
    @Jillian I had to rip this idiot a new ahole – what nonesence! Jillian you’re gem, keep on keepin on gal! Xx

    What are you yammering on about? The goat’s cheese, ethical vegans, or something else?

    This kind of negativity and hostility is the reason why she was so hesitant to come out and speak about her journey to become vegan. She also recently announced how now that she is pregnant she has altered her diet to do what is best for her and her baby. No one is perfect. If you don’t approve or like her blog and posts don’t follow.

    Sorry I thought I wrote this already but can you recommend substitutions for goat cheese since us pregnant ladies are not allowed to have it !

    There are tons of different nut cheeses you can make and great vegan alternatives at the grocery store!
