Clean Eating on a Budget

Clean eating is a method based on the idea that the best way to eat is to abundantly enjoy whole foods:  That is foods as close to their natural state as you can get them.This means eating fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins instead of pre-packaged, processed foods or fast food.

The mucous membranes of our septum, which divides the nose into two cavities, further prepare the air for our lungs by warming and humidifying it.
