McDonald's May Put Kale On Its Menu (Yes, Seriously!)

McDonald's and kale: the least likely marriage possible.

But as the fast-food giant struggles to win back the natural-ingredient-seeking consumer it lost to its more progressive competitors (think Chipotle and Shake Shack), it seems this is its Hail Mary.

NPR has more:

Just a few months ago McDonald’s was showing no love for kale.In a TV ad promoting the beefiness of the Big Mac, the chain poked fun at the leafy green and other vegetarian fare: "You can’t get juiciness like this from soy or quinoa,” a low voice quips as the camera focuses on a juicy burger. "Nor will it ever be kale." But the chain is now showing it some affection. McDonald’s has announced that it’s testing a new breakfast bowl that blends kale and spinach with turkey sausage and egg whites. McDonald’s spokeswoman Lisa McComb says, the bowls are "freshly prepared."

McDonald's latest attempt to shed its less-than-nutritious reputation seems like too little, too late on a menu full of items like mystery-meat McNuggets and Silly Putty french fries. This may be progress for the company, but really, who wants to get their kale fix from McDonald's?
