The base of the New Food Pyramid is still grains - but the focus has turned to make sure there are more WHOLE grains, not just empty starch. Interestingly enough though you can see (if you click on the image) that the allowance is for only half of the grains to be whole grain. My personal opinion is that this is still cutting us short of our much needed fiber and vitamins in our diets that we can get from only whole grains.

A diet which consists of virtually all fo the grain choices as whole grain is healthier than what is recommended. Remember, however, even if you consume only whole grains as your base, there still is a limit of how much to consume.

Best Blessings!
