Clean eating did not come about from ashy bikini lady, it was around a long time before she marketed her version of it.
Clean eating is removing processed/manufactured foods from your diet. Very simply eating real food, no processed sugar, no boxes, no additives. I see various takes on it including people who still live on packaged processed food because it has macro written on it, use low fat products full of thickeners and other toxic rubbish and protein powders. This to me is definitely not clean.
It can be tough to get a grasp on as we have so many frankenfoods that we think are normal, but once you grasp the concept of whole, fresh, non processed food then it is very simple, challenging sometimes when we are surrounded by processed rubbish and misleading dietary information and advertising though..ie low fat products and processed vegetable oils are better for you.
Leaning challenge is a good start point if you can find some information on that. Some good you tubes on it with Soren.

Ideally you would have a mostly 'fresh food' diet. You should limit (or ideally cut out) all packaged and processed foods. If you are interested, I would suggest you move in this direction slowly as you become more familiar with it. Also, try to but organic wherever you can (or afford to).
I definitely wouldn't look to a personal trainer for nutritional advice, unless they are actually a dietician.

Can you have brown rice? And extra Virgin olive oil? I assume salt and pepper are no-nos. but what about other dried herbs? Or can you only have fresh herbs? And was it yes or no to yoghurt?
I think I could do it, not sure about the kids though...

I have bought the Ashy Bines diet and a couple of other clean eating diets. Ashy Bines is pretty good and is maintainable as an every day diet if you follow the basic principles. My favourite is Sophie Guidolin though. A lot of research has gone into her diet and she has the body to prove it (after two kids). Sophie's is cheaper too. I follow the basic principles of Sophie's diet which is five meals a day and continue to stay slim and healthy.

I am grain free clean eating but that is because grains give me inflammation, so that is just for me. Clean is clean, I can see nothing wrong with brown or white rice, my choice would be brown for GI factor and Insulin balance as again that is important to me for metabolically of PCOS. Quinoa is not a grain so I do use that instead as it is yummy and can even do risotto.
All the family eats this way as do dinner guests (never a complaint), we still have some dairy, again it is personal choice. However our dairy is never processed cheese spreads or restructured processed milks, just whole organic dairy. Our yogurt choice is no thickeners, no low fat rubbish, no processed sugars or fruit concentrates, just quality natural yogurts....just read the ingredients on EVERYTHING.
i use butter, pure olive oil ( refined olive oil has vegetable oil added, again read EVERYTHING you would be shocked at some the things in some of our 'pure' foods), coconut oil, macadamia oil, grape seed oil, but no vegetable/seed/canola oils as they are chemical s$&t storms and our bodies cannot break them done without releasing toxic rubbish which cause all kinds of health issues.
if you want a food, check if it has a les processed, more whole option, like brown instead of white rice etc.

I follow a paleo lifestyle but you'll find that most people cater this to their own health and well being needs. I've never felt better and highly recommend you looking into it. There is a lot of information in the Internet and you can access free ebooks as well. Let me know if you have any questions =)
