I'm a fan of Michael Pollen's work, and I think he's right promoting this: "Eat food. not too much. mainly plants." Clean eating is not boring. Its far from it. Most of the artificial crap that many are addicted aim to emulate the naturally sweet flavours such as dates. Refined confectionist provides short-lived highs. Tasting fresh food cooked right with an abundance of flavour complexity is an experience to be savoured.
