Mark’s Daily Apple has a rant on why grains are a completely unnecessary part of a healthy diet, along with the common reasons people say you need to eat grains, all of which are misguided at best.  My favorite reason commonly cited that grains are good for you are that they have a lot of fiber, and we all need fiber!  This is completely ridiculous of course,  but cited almost 100% of the time when someone tries to defend eating “whole grains”.  Don’t get me wrong, I eat grains from time to time, and there’s nothing wrong with having them occasionally (assuming you’re not gluten intolerant), but they’re by no means a primary source of caloric intake in our household, and I’d recommend doing your research on the true benefit of grains instead of just trusting the cereal companies and government food pyramid before your next bowl of Grape Nuts.
