Most foods are not simply good or bad, or “healthy” or “unhealthy”. The balancing of the plate is an important step in getting a high grade. This means composing a variety of high quality ingredients that add up to a high grade meal.
Foods like salads can be one way to do this, but almost any combination of foods can be composed into a healthy plate.
