Pretty clean diet. I'd up the fat though, 49 grams a day is pretty low. Healthy fats are good. Nothiny wrong with 338 grams of protein but it's pretty extreme for somebody that's 175 lbs, if you don't have room for more fat cut back on the protein a little. I'd also try to eat more greens. I don't see any veggies or fruit except at dinner.

Ultimately a lean bulk comes down to a small excess of Calories. The food source doesn't matter that much. For health, normal nutrition rules apply.

How anyone can consider 338 grams of protein a day to be a "clean bulk" is beyond me.
You do realize that protein is made up of calories, right?
Like Auburn said, a clean bulk means a few hundred cals above maintenance, not 1000 cals above, which is where you'll find yourself on 338 grams of protein a day.
And you'll be fat in next to no time.
