Kale could be coming to a McDonald’s breakfast menu near you.

The fast-food chain is currently testing out a breakfast menu item that contains the leafy green at 800 locations in Southern California, CNN Money reports.

McDonald’s is testing two new breakfast bowls, one containing kale, following the success of making its breakfast menu available all day.

Nicole Enearu, who runs 13 McDonald’s franchises in Southern California, tells CNN the breakfast bowls contain:

  • Egg whites with turkey sausage and Parmesan cheese — and kale
  • Chicken chorizo with scrambled eggs

The 800 Southern California restaurants that are testing out the breakfast bowls are also testing out Chobani Greek yogurt in items such as smoothies and parfaits, the Associated Press reported earlier this year.

Kale debuted at McDonald’s last year, and it can now be found in every salad on McDonald’s menu:

As the AP explains the test runs of healthier menu items:

The change-up in Southern California comes as McDonald’s Corp. fights to step up its image, as sales have slumped amid changing tastes and intensifying competition. CEO Steve Easterbrook, who took over last March, has said he wants to transform McDonald’s into a “modern, progressive burger company.”
