Hi EBBKATE! Welcome to the team. The clean eating principles I follow are from Tosca Reno's book The Eat Clean Diet. She also has a website www.eatcleandiet.com/about_the_diet. as px and a blog both are helpful but her books really lay the details out clearly.
As for sparkpeople try not to get overwhelmed once you get the hang of this site you'll find it super informative and supportive.
Best of luck! Don't hesitate to ask any questions.
Oh! And as far as knowing when people reply, I get emails sent to me and I think that is the standard setting so hopefully you'll see this post :)

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

I've dabbled with eating clean and as long as I stick with it I've had great success. Unfortunately, lately I have had a hard time committing to clean eating. As of today I am reconfirming and recommitting myself to the eat clean lifestyle and am excited to share it with so many of you. I look forward to all the recipes, tips and support!
