Total Food Newbie Needs Help

Hey all,
I am just starting Muay Thai classes this month, prior to this I have no experience except for two months of BJJ. I am not looking to compete, just to have a healthy lifestyle. I am 6'3" and 160 pounds, not fat or muscular, just a thin guy.
I am looking to use Muay Thai and a healthy diet to tone up, maybe put on a bit of muscle, get a defined six pack, and just generally look more fit.
However, I am lost and overwhelmed by the wide array of foods around, and I have committed to eating healthy but this has been more of a random only buy healthy food and eat it thing which has left me with eggs (scrambled on toasted whole wheat bread), pasta in homemade tomato sauce, blueberries, brocolli, almonds (i love snacks).
Other than this, I really don't know anything about eating healthy while doing Muay Thai (3 times a week is what I aim for) so what I am asking for is just a basic list of meals that are healthy that I can prepare and eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, or should I eat like six smaller meals?
Any help you can give me on this new lifestyle choice is greatly appreciated, as I am very excited about this new change, I already sleep under eight hours a day and feel great upon waking up, as opposed to my last year diet of cafeteria food where I would sleep up to the eleven hours a night and feel crappy.
Thanks!
