Join a community supported agricultural group, or Use your local farmers market. In a CSA you buy a share in what the farmer produces, and you get a box of veg weekly. Eat more local fruits and veg, and stop eating so much processed foods. I think this is a good way to be healthier.

I carry a small container of protein powder in my purse. Then when I order a coffee, I can make my custom fancy coffee drink by using that instead of creamer. I like the chocolate powder, but french vanilla is yummy,too. Make it a decaf to add to your water count for the day. I'm also saving money
freeze grapes for a popcicle like treat. Great on hot days.
Chocolate Cheerios are the best thing for a chocolate craving. Have a serving of these little chocolate wonders and they banish the craving for the fatting counterparts. No guilt, no shame!!
Cottage cheese with cut up strawberries mixed in it. Get your fruit and dairy at very few calories and it is really good.

Every night, before I go to bed, I make sure that I put my water glass (holds just over 3 cups) into the fridge so that when I get up in the morning, I have a nice cold container of water waiting for me - to start my day right.
