September will be whole grains month

so I'm feeling sorry for all these folks who don't eat any grains at all.  

I've just been exploring the Oldways website, something I'd missed somehow, and found this offer a day for September

A couple of questions arise.
Why is there no diet pyramid for northern Europeans?   Surely there are traditional ways of eating from which we could benefit?   More small oily fish and rye bread for me.

And why do people keep calling quinoa and its cousins grains?  They aren't, though they do fill that niche in the diet.  But so does taro (poi) and I don't hear anyone promoting that - except among native Hawaiians.
