Sweetgreen is making America healthy one salad at a time by removing Sriracha and bacon from its menu Tuesday, according to a release. The toppings are replaced with Portobello mushrooms and sustainably farmed steelhead trout.

“You can’t be a healthy food business and serve bacon,” the release reads.

Say goodbye to Avocobbo and Wild Child as part of Sweetgreen’s new “Make America Healthy Again” campaign.

Sweetgreen executives launched the campaign based on health and environmental issues involved in the upcoming presidential election, according to the release.

“We need to rethink how we define ‘healthy’ and take action,” the release reads.

The menu includes two new salads: Hello Portobello – made with Portobello mushroom, wild rice, kale – and OMG Omega, which includes steelhead trout and avocado. The popular Mexican Corn Elote bowl also makes a triumphant return.

Although there aren’t any carnivorous replacements for bacon on the new menu, Sweetgreen customers can add spice from dried, all-natural chiles to replace Sriracha.
