Grocery shopping on a budget and having time to cook nutritious meals can be difficult when you are in class all day and cramming for exams or projects all night. Eating clean can be expensive and hard to find. Cleanses have been pretty popular around my campus but making sure you are doing them the right way and putting enough nutrients in your body to make and burn for energy is crucial especially during hectic weeks of class.
