I know grains have been around for ~10,000 years and have been a significant part of some cultures diets. However, do any of you think that grains being such a huge part of the SAD may be remnants of the Great Depression? Instead of everyone having hearty meals, they had to resort bread and soup lines to keep people from dying in the streets. Is it that the wheat production remained high after the economy recovered and other, better foods kind of creeped back in? It seems logical to me. I know people had bread, muffins, etc back in the 18th and 19th centuries, but I find it hard to believe that even their grain intake was as high as ours.
No announcement yet.
Grain prominence due to the Great Depression?
