re: deli meats. You can have them ONLY if they are all natural and nitrate and preservative free. Also alot of deli meats contain sugar. Even 'real' sugar is not 'clean' so be very careful. If you have a Whole Foods or a Trader Joe's near you, those are safe bets but always ALWAYS read lablels.

Look for "The complete idiot's guide to Clean Eating" by Diane A. Welland. I love it! I'm not a huge fan of Tosca Reno but she also has quite a few books and seems to be the leading voice of eating clean but do other research as well. She seems to contradict herself somewhat.

re: brussel sprouts in light butter sauce clean?
Probably not. The butter in that is "most likely" not made from organic milk so the cows have been most likely treated with that hormone to make them higher producerse. I can't recall the exact hormone but unless it's 'all natural' or organic, odds are it is NOT clean.

Clean eating is non processed foods. You can still eat bread from the store just make sure it's whole wheat, not white. 1st ingredient should be whole wheat flour. As for yogurt make sure you read the label. Greek yogurt is good for you, and try not to get one with more than 7 grams of sugar. Fat free products usually hide sugar in the foods so you need to read all labels. Brussel sprouts are good , but sorry not the sauced kind. Most veggies taste great cut up , sprinkled with olive oil and some seasoning( I like Mrs.Dash), and roasted at 400 degrees for about 40 minutes. Very flavorful. Hope this is helpful.

I get that you don't buy things like hamburger helper and high processed foods. But can you still have deli meats? what about grocery store breads?
and yogurt? do you have to make yourown to eat clean?
