In my quest to eat healthy....

Hey fellow hounders:

Like many of you guys, my husband and I are trying to lighten up after all the holiday eating! I thought it would be a good idea to replace ground turkey breast for ground beef in some of the recipes we love (eg. meat sauce, meatballs, meatloaf, burgers etc.) The problem is that I can not find any ground turkey breast anywhere on the beautiful Island where I live. I can find the nasty ground turkey parts (kind of like hot dogs but with out the dog part!). I did get some frozen butterball boneless turkey breasts (you know those cute fat little round balls of turkey breast for smaller recreations of thanksgiving dinner!) My question is can I defrost the breast, use my meat grinder to make ground breast and then portion it up and re-freeze? There is only 2 of us so I would not be able to use all at once.... Any advice for me would be greatly apprreciated!!!

Part 2: We can make this thread a 2 part and post any other efforts being made for healthy living.... Im also doing the core plan on WW which there is a thread going on right now relating to recipes and books that are helpful.

Thanks everyone!
