Grains for humans to eat were just there. I don't know what they were thinking back than but the first human who ate grain would probably have been really hungry and tried something new.
I think that he found out that he could eat it and felt very full by it so ate more when he was hungry…
(I'm just guessing here but grain in a easy form of a lot of calories, so it's easy to feed a lot of people with it)
It's not about purpose. It's about competition. As different groups of cells evolved they were either able to consume nutrients and multiple faster than the other cell groups could eat them or be never more.
Some of you may die, but that is a risk I'm willing to take.
In nature, what is the purpose of grains? Humans have trouble digesting grains and back in Grok's day, they probably didn't have the knowledge to strip wheat and make it into flour and bake cookies. So besides the obvious uses for wheat. What is the purpose of grains in nature? Is it for birds to fly down and peck at and eat?
Let me guess...American public education system, amirite?
I am not sure I understand the question, but unripe cereal grains are easy enough to chew on, and after the snow fall/dirt is frozen, dry cereal grains along with nuts and acorns etc would look pretty darn attractive. Grains and seeds are not an 'unnatural' food source, it's the over-abundance & artificial components that make it detrimental.

Grains are annual plants that only grow where there's been basically an ecological catastrophe. Agriculture is basically the simulation of ecological catastrophes year after year.
