Good News Whole wheat pitas are rich in vitamin E, but be sure to buy "100 percent whole wheat" versions, since they contain the entire nutrient-rich germ and bran. Pam Anderson serves her seed-studded pita chips with soup or by themselves as a "predinner bite," a snack to keep her energy up and her appetite under control. "Dinner is when a lot of people overdo it, but it's one meal when you shouldn't—because you won't burn off the calories," she says.
