I can't have grapefruit and was told not at all....but was never told no citrus zest, but I would still avoid grapefruit zest. Yes, ask your pharmacist...that was who talked with me!
Good luck!

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 !!
