If I were to assemble a menu for my week that would provide all the nutrients I would need without supplements, what foods would they be? Also how often would I need to eat them?

Any animal large or small (from bugs to elephants) provide complete set of nutrients as long as they are not poisonous. But the preference appears to be for ruminants and fish (or other sea animals) since they have better nutrient ratio for humans.

The hooves can be put in the broth for a source of gelatin

A whole animal, large or small? I would think it should be a larger animal to give all the nutrients necessary for an adult human.

Dried corriender would provide more than chocolate, but chocolate is good. http://www.healthaliciousness.com/articles/foods-high-in-magnesium.php

On paper you might get everything but in reality you might not be. I think for the most part everyone should supp K2, magnesium, selenium and possibly iodine.

If your really focused on getting it all from food I would source out the highest quality produce(Homegrown preferably), pastured eggs and grass fed ruminants. Eat a good balance of all these foods and you'll be good imo.

All parts of grass fed ruminants, including making and consuming plenty of broth made from the bones, and cooking everything in the fat...add some fresh shellfish, a few fermented veggies, and that's probably pretty close...

Any whole animals (minus fur, claws, hooves, and horns) have complete set of vitamins and minerals. If you can grind one that would be all you need. That's in theory. In reality it usually does not work that way unless you are like Lex at rawpaleo forum. All he eats is ground up mix that's similar to whole ground animal plus added fat. What I do is occasionally I eat those small anchovies whole - head, tail, and guts. Raw anchovies have some vit C. If you get C somewhere else I guess it would be OK to cook those.
