BTW, this meal comes from a restaurant that I eat at with my fiance once or twice a week. She likes to eat out, so we go here because this seems like a fairly healthy meal for a restaurant and it tastes damn good.

If your eating clean and whole foods through out the week than that's ok to have a small cheat meal once a week.

I would eat the meal daily if the sodium content wasn't so high.

To answer your question, this meal would be perfect for bulking/cutting with less sodium.
