It's all the different kinds of pears, Bosc, Bartlett, Anjou, names I can't remember.

Well, at least it isn't everywhere in NA. I was afraid it was a trend.

pancakes or french toast with sausage sounds so good. I wish I had not had so much last night.

Sometimes I forget that grapefruit is a citrus. Instead like the dummy I can be, I stick with oranges. I am going to write down on my notepad right now, GRAPEFRUIT for my grocery list. It is a safer fruit for me to eat. Oddly enough, there are some medications that if you are taking them, you can't eat grapefruit. Will have to check first. Thanks for the reminder VB. Will look into tangerines also. I love the smell of citrus, but it can raise your sugar level. Hmmm. Now you have me thinking. It is Sunday, a day of rest. Now I have to use my brain. Geesh. Oh yes. I also have two bags of frozen blueberries. I should be eating them.

After 18 years on Cardiziem I can now eat grapefruit. Yeah, Not, I would like to go back to those days before my recent health issues. I love grapefruit, but I could give it up again.

No grapefruit for me, either...mine is Lipitor. I had a Pharmacy Consult tell me it was okay to have a little grapefruit juice, every once in a while. My problem is, I start drinking it and I can't stop until it's all gone. Easier to just leave it alone.

I go through spurts with grapefruit. I like to change the fruit for the week occasionally. Oranges, on the other hand, I love to always have around. They are my favorite fruit, but I never met one I didn't like. Sometimes I eat too much in a day/week, and that leads to heartburn.
