Redorangedog, Whole wheat bread with 12 grams of fiber per slice is available at my organic bakery. It is possible to purchase wholesome whole wheat bread for the bread eaters. You must read the nutritional content.

Sounds like you are on a heart-healthy program. I would caution about the wheat bread. Except for possibly some additional fiber it is not much healthier than white bread!
