Default Working on Custom Diet

Hello Forum,

I've been trying to work on a custom weight loss diet that consists of palatable meals. So far I've lost 25 lbs. (going from 194 to 169). Here is what a fairly good day of my diet looks like:
  • Cooked spelt with silk and cinnamon
  • Coffee with half-n-half
  • Almonds (I get Cocoa Roast from Sam's Club)
  • Large spinach salad with croutons, walnuts, and balsamic vinaigrette
  • Smoked Turkey and Lentil Soup
  • Raw carrots
  • Sockeye patties with lemon herb sauce
  • Broccoli with a little cheddar sauce
  • Peanut butter and jelly whole wheat sandwich
  • Plenty of water
  • A little juice

I can cut calories this way and get a good amount of vitamins and minerals through food sources, but I think this is relatively high in fat. Can anyone show me a good example where the ratio is about 60% carbs, 20% fat 20% protein? What does a good day from your diet look like?

BTW, I'm also trying to do this on a budget.

Thanks.

-Christopher
