A little blackbird told us that the Beatles were big fans of sandwiches—just like us! Between the deli lunch meat piled high, slices of delicious cheese and of course condiments, sandwiches can quickly turn into a not-so-healthy lunch option.

In honor of the famous foursome’s favorite food, we’re saving you from lunchtime woes with our Green Submarine Sandwich recipe. We grabbed some sourdough wheat bread and piled it high with our favorite veggies and our signature Green Goodness aioli. Veggies may not seem like the most exciting center for a sandwich, but these greens add crunchy texture and an amazing taste to this sub. Best of all, it won’t throw off your day of good decision making.
