Some meds like cholesterol and blood pressure tablets say you can't have grapefruit, but it's usually within a certain time from having your meds. Check with your doctor or pharmacist and they will tell you if you can have them at all or at a specific time.

I am going to have to look into that. First I have to see if I can have citrus fruit. On one of the medications pamphlets I have it warms about eating grapefruit. That is too bad because I love grapefruit.
I love SparkPeople

I fully agree with Chef Meg that a great way to zest a citrus fruit is by microplane - however these are very difficult for anyone who has hand problems (arthitis, carpel tunnel etc) to cope with - they have great problems gripping it and/or controlling the zest!! There is a great alternative zester available - the Chef'n Palm Zester - it slips into the palm of the hand and all thats needed to get great zest - is to rub it over the suface of the fruit - the zest is collected in the little container behind the blades that then clips off - and its very easy to clean!! They are available in America!! They have 2 other advantages too - they are cheap and come in 3 colours !!
