Smoked Gouda Grilled Cheese With Arugula and Roasted Red Peppers

I've gotta say, one of the hardest parts about completing the cleanse is missing out on some staple foods. Like CHEESE! By week two I'm dairy free and while I feel amazing, I'm also drooling just looking at this awesome grilled cheese I've made time and time again... It might be the first item I make once I'm home from Disney and done with this cleanse! This healthier Smoked Gouda Grilled Cheese sandwich has bold roasted red peppers, creamy Dijon mustard, fresh arugula, and smoked gouda cheese.
