dairy products are mucus producing

cut down or cut out (which ever you prefer) dairy products

such as milk, cheese, ice cream

drink loads of water (its cleansing and flushes out toxins)

antihistamines (histamines actually cause the release/ production of mucus)

vasculrestrictors (constricts the blood flow in the nose to the mucus produsing cells)

spicy food actually has the opposite effect and will help reduce the production of mucus (although its likely to cause some mucus production first)
