Does anyone know how much of what you should eat during a week?

I've been enjoying chicken salad this week, after roasting a chicken specifically on Tuesday. I'm trying to work out a meal plan, but I'd appreciate knowing what we're supposed to have (obviously 5 fruit and veg a day is one). Here's my plan:

Home-made flapjacks,1 per day. Cost; practically free. benefit; fibre, dried fruit
Roast chicken salad, 1 per day. cost; ~£2. benefit; protein, fibre, vitamins 1x five a day
smoothie, 250ml per day, cost 75p (from a litre bottle) fibre, 2 x 5 a day
natural yoghurt with compote and granola, cost £1? benefit 1x 5 a day, fibre, protein.

I think that would get me through the day, and then there's always an orange or something. And then on Friday I could mix it up a little. This doesn't include an evening meal, but is there such a thing as eating too much chicken? Are there enough complex carbs there? I could always have a nice wholemeal sandwich or something too. There are no beans in there either.

And fish and red meat would be weekends or evenings.
