I'm trying to set up a budget, and my first goal is to get my groceries in order. To that end, I'm trying to set up a general meal plan for myself that will optimize my nutrition while simplifying prep time. All the meats are either wild-caught or grass-fed from http://www.texasgrassfedbeef.com .
.5 lb Pork Sausage
1 lb Ground Beef, Buffalo, or Lamb
.5 lb Beef Bacon (sliced brisket)
.5 lb Ground Beef, Buffalo, or Lamb
.5 lb Chicken or Beef Liver
.5 lb Beef Bacon
1 lb Salmon
In addition, I will eat the following daily:
2 cups leafy greens (spinach, kale, spring mix, turnip or collard greens)
2-3 cups non-starchy vegetables (usually broccoli or cauliflower, but also things like asparagus, onions, etc)
1 sweet potato or other starchy vegetable (on occasion)
Various fats and oils for cooking or flavor (clarified butter, coconut oil, coconut milk, and avocado being the main ones)
For reference, I am 23 years old, 5'9" tall, and weigh 183 lbs. I have a part time standing job that involves moving around weights of 10-60 pounds around 25-30 hours per week. I have already lost a lot of weight (about 100 lbs total, the last 50 over 1.5 years primal/paleo), but I still have a lot of flab hanging around my midsection that I'd like to get rid of. I'd also like to up my strength even more, but the fat loss takes precedence.

Looks good. As Jonesy said, eggs will add a few nutrients like K2, other options for K2 are natto(yuck) or grassfed hard cheese!
Don't forget that it's not just food.
Sleep and Stress are Huge for losing that last bit.
An of course I'm a huge advocate for fasted training.
