If you are looking to put on muscle, it isn't enough calories. At your weight, you are going to need at least 2600 IMO.

its an ok diet plan but its not going to produce the results you want. A better plan could be:
2eggs 3egg whites
1 cup oats not the out of a pouch crap with tons of sugar, put cinnamon and dark berries in it if you want
your turkey casserole would be an ok after workout meal.
another 2 meals of chicken and rice with veggies would be good or substitute tuna, even lean beef.
save nuts milk cottage cheese for last meals or late night snacks.
through in 2 protein shakes a day and that would be a better option for you imo.

Your Diet is way too low in calories if you are looking to build muscle. This would be a pretty good cutting diet for a guy your size, but you really need to up you calories. I would include some more meat. It looks like your ground turkey casserole is your only source of meat, correct? Try getting some beef in, as well as whole eggs. You could benefit from the saturated fat in the beef and the cholesterol in the eggs, not to mention the killer amino acid profiles they both carry.... Excellent protein sources.

Yeah, you would actually lose a lot of weight, becuase your burning all those calories even if you weren't active.
