I'm eating it right now - peanut butter and strawberry jam on toasted English muffin with lemonade. I had two cups of coffee a couple hours ago.

No the miniature ones...like cherry tomatoes but baby plum ones (I find they have a better flavour).

This interaction can occur even if grapefruit is eaten many hours before taking the medication. For example, simvastatin, when taken with about a 7-ounce glass of grapefruit juice once a day for three days, produced a 330% greater concentration of the drug compared to taking it with water. This can cause life-threatening muscle damage called rhabdomyolysis."

But adverse reactions vary from patient to patient according to reports.

Grapefruit With Some Medications: Risky Business
Surprised about the connection with statins and Warfarin. My father was on it, with regular specialist checks and was never told not to eat/drink grapefruit.

Also, the grapefruit statin thing depends to a certain extent on the type of the statin according to my mother's doctor. There is a thing now in the UK where "they" are saying that everyone should be on statins regardless of whether they have any medical need for them. Seems a drastic waste of the NHS's money. Despite being over weight ad eating butter and eggs as if they are going out of fashion my cholesterol levels are very low. My old doctor reckoned it was because of the exercise I get with doing Horse's jobs. Or perhaps it's the French paradox - I drink red wine in moderation

It amazes me when I read what some of you eat for breakfast. It takes me all my time to eat a couple of slices of toast, butter and/or jam or a bowl of cereal. I can just about manage a "full english"* at about 11am as long as I have been up and about since 8am and have had about 3 cups of tea and a sit down and a think.

*A full english = Bacon and fried eggs, tomatoes, sausages, mushrooms, fried bread, baked beans (courtesy of Messrs Heinz et al), toast and marmalade, tea (or coffee) or any combination of the above. It requires a strong constitution to wade through that lot!

Needless to say, I only have this once in a blue moon.

It amazes me what people eat for supper. I eat my big meal in the morning--get it done. I was not a breakfast person until about 2 years ago (or is it 3)? Now that I eat breakfast, I don't eat nearly as much during the day and have shrunk 4 sizes. I like breakfast and what it has done for me. I quit coffee in 2007. Don't miss that caffeine hangover.

I was a bit greedy today and had a double breakfast, i.e. either one should have sufficed.

I bought some unusual artisan beetroot and apple bread (for the first time - quite good) so had it with Wensleydale and cranberry cheese (the shop was out of goat's cheese, my first choice). Works really well together.

Then I had what I had originally planned to eat - a slice of organic wholemeal bread spread with roule (garlic cream cheese) and topped with a little smoked salmon.
