When I go shopping I always go to the fruits and veggies section first and pick up ... anything. It saves me from wandering into the less healthy stuff and it ensures that I always have fruits and veggies around.
I look for items that work well as snacks if I don't have a specific meal plan in mind. Thinking of these items as snacks also seems to sate the need to buy unhealthy snacks.
I decided to save money for an outfit or vacation or anything you want in a jar...depends on how it works out for myself. If I drink all my water a day save $1 if I eat all my fruit and veggies $1 if I don't drink diet drinks save $1...total of $3 a day will go a long way after a year..
