Basically, it's eating as nature intended and avoiding processed foods.
The general rules of eating clean is to shop the perimeter of the grocery store where all the fresh produce is and to avoid most things that come in a box, bag, can, container. There are a few exceptions though but you try to avoid anything with added salt, perservatives and chemicals. Limit saturated fats and avoid trans fats. Limit sugar and choose whole foods. It's a lot of making all your own meals from scratch.
I try to eat clean for the most part, but there are certain exceptions I make, like store bought bread. But I like the ingredient list in foods that come in a bag, box, can, container to be short and contain ingredients that I actually know what they are and they are naturally occurring. For canned veggies/beans I only buy "no sodium added".
