Could I eat eggs, meat/chicken/salmon, avocado, butter, broccoli, kale and spinach and cover all the nutritional bases? Anything to add/remove/change? Berries and nuts, for example?

No. I would in fact make sure the butter is grass fed, to improve your low K2 intake. I would add some seaweed to counteract the goitrogenic effects of kale and broccoli, and I would eat at least a pound a day of your green veggies.

drop the fish oil and eat fish a couple of times a week.The more "optimal" diet would be to eat varied, so menu 1 day 1, menu 2 day 2, etc.

4 eggs and 6 strips of bacon @ 70 calories each = 700 calories. Throw in 100 calories of veggies sauteed in the bacon grease and you're all set.
