Either of these options can serve as a nutritional base for sandwiches―particularly when they are made with 100 percent whole wheat. Typically, two slices of whole wheat bread contain fewer calories and a bit more fiber than one whole wheat pita, which has less sodium. Both count as up to two of your three recommended daily servings of whole grain.
