What are your goals and stats and could you be more specific with serving/portion sizes?

Since you're probably already relatively lean, I would recommend finding out your caloric needs (usually your BWx10x1.5 to factor in activity level if you don't want to get really technical with it) and eat slightly over that in order to build more muscle - maybe something like 200 calories over, making sure you're getting 1g of protein per pound of body weight. Aside from making sure you have carbs and protein after a work out, just fill in the rest of your calories with a ratio of carbs:fat that you find personally satisfying and make sure you're lifting heavy so those few extra calories are going toward building muscle.

The foods you listed are spot-on for doing that, it's just a matter of making sure you're eating the right amounts of them in order to facilitate muscle growth.

Pounds. For example, for me: 123 x 10 x 1.5 = 1845.
