Your smoothie sounds disgusting, I thought primal was about eating real food. However, if you like it, why not make it for lunch. Replace it at breakfast time with bacon, eggs and veges - you can make this as a quiche in advance if there's really no time but I think it's just about as quick as making a smoothie.

Slow walk and yoga may be ok for destressing, but have you tried sprinting instead? eg rowing machine for 1min all out, 1min rest, repeat a few cycles.
Also, eggs are great but they are not meat. Tofu is not meat and not primal either. Beef, pork and lamb are all excellent.

wow, so much to say, and i don't care about being an asshole, so here goes...
first off your daily meal plan - you're not giving a full account. that's not all you're eating every day, because that's a ridiculously small amount of calories. i personally don't care, but do not kid yourself. that list you provided is indicative of a problem, namely, lying to yourself about energy intake, which is why you're having trouble losing weight.
i don't like snacking, but it really doesn't matter all that much. if you prefer more smaller meals, go for it. the ultimate determinant of weight loss is energy balance. in other words, if you eat too much, be it one meal or eight meals per day, you won't lose weight.
there is no daily fat intake. are you trying to hit some arbitrary fat number, with no context? give that up.
you're not losing weight because you're taking in more energy than you're expending, which is a polite way of saying that you're eating too much/too many calories. people here, on these forums, subscribe to all sorts of bullshit, but restricting carbs and stuffing yourself with too much fat simply won't work for weight loss. and in your case, it's clearly too much.
