Yes. That actually has a couple more carbs per serving than white.

Yes I realise that. My thinking is that whole wheat products have lower glycaemic index rating than white bread (which is a refined carbohydrate). I guess it might depend on the reason for going on the low carb diet, e.g. if it was for preventing/combating diabetes or not.

Re. calories though, of course white and wholewheat pita bread are virtually the same.

I felt proud of my resistance, but none the less heartbroken over leaving that cheeseburger unloved.
Rick, the plastic sandwich bag trick works well for a home made lettuce wrapped loaded burger. It keeps the messy juices contained pretty well.
I roll the top of the baggie over to make a collar for easier eating and preventing icky hands.

There are other American sandwiches besides PB&J. From New York, Philly and Mass.

Yes I know. I asked what members here thought would more represent an american sandwich and have got a lot of feedback..... You could scroll back to page 1, specifically from # 8 to view the replies.

Just about my favorite "American sandwich" would be a BLT. I long for one with thick sliced bacon, home grown sliced tomato, only 1 leaf of lettuce on toasted sour dough bread with mayo.

Don't knock it until you've tried it. It's my bread of preference for PB&J, as well as tuna (especially Trader Joe's yellowfin!).

That's my kind of sandwich. Toasted sour dough bread is the biz!

We have an
artisan bakery here in UK called Gayle's - a chain store. They do all manner of exotic breads. I always buy their french sourdough bread. It's so good that it has stopped me baking my own bread now - I can't get enough of it!
