Say goodbye to your favorite brunch spot's egg-white
omelette and say hello to … McDonald's?!
Last week, McDonalds added their healthiest ingredient yet
to their menu: kale. Although it will only be served in nine of their spots
worldwide, a kale, egg white and turkey sausage bowl has been a huge hit
for foodies and has definitely caused increased traffic.
A reporter from TakePart told that after surrendering to the
craze and trying Mickey D's newest health item, she "wouldn't hesitate to order
it again." With only 240 calories, 26
grams of protein and 6 grams of carbs, this fast-food chain might not be the
worst option, after all.
Tasters have been raving about the "real" ingredients used
in these breakfast bowls—including real Parmesan cheese. One of the healthiest
parts about McDonald's kale bowl is the
shift to using non-artificial, unprocessed ingredients.
In the past few years, many food trends have shifted towards dishes with healthy ingredients and convenience; think: pressed
juices, chopped salads, açai bowls. Are fast food chains finally hopping on the
health food bandwagon now? With McDonald's huge
success with kale-based breakfast bowls in just one week, we're excited to
see if kale can successfully transform fast-food chains.
