Bread is one of those items that can be wholesome and nutritious when manufactured with care and with whole grains. Most breads, however, are manufactured from processed white flour and high fructose corn syrup. Those are the two kickers that really negate most commercially available breads. Clean Eaters sometimes eat things that just lend themselves to a bun - like a salmon patty, turkey burger, or tuna fish.
Nature's Own brand has hamburger and hotdog size buns that are about as close to Clean as a commerically prepared bread can be. Admittedly, they aren't perfect - but they are head and shoulders better than anything else I've found that is readily available.
