I have a notebook in Evernote with a separate note for each restaurant I visit and what the best options are for my diet plan in each. I don't write down the "best options" that I wouldn't like either - just what I'd actually order. With my smart phone, I have that custom reference to keep me on track.

I have added rescuing stray grocery carts to my "park far away" routine at major box stores and grocery stores. Rescuing a grocery cart left in a parking space is a good deed, and gives you a little upper body exercise while you're walking toward the store. Win-win!
I recently re-joined a produce co-op in my area. I have also learned about a local "produce rescue" that allows the public to pay $10 for and shop for up to 60 lbs. of produce! I had no idea these options were out there. In addition to being inexpensive ways of buying produce, it rather "forces" me to get creative and find new recipes for healthy foods. 550
There are both organic co-ops and those that offer a choice or "regular" or organic for a few dollars more. Look on the internet and you ay be surprised what is in your area. The "produce rescue" operation turned out to have a location once a month a mile from my house and I never knew this before
