‘MooShroom’ – Day 291/365

‘MooShroom’ – Day 291/365

A painting for plant lovers, for animal lovers, for anyone who chooses mushroom over meat, for anyone who eats for the future. (which by the way is now known as being a #climatarian)⁠

Thanks @beercountrysa for the stimulation to rise to a challenge (within a challenge).⁠
Side story: these okes finally caved to my constant, but loving badgering of insufficient veggie recipes under their RAD #beerfoodfire brand and shared their kick-ass mushroom burger (pg 85 of their @beercountrysa recipe book)⁠
.⁠
So, okes, I didn’t paint the miniature mushroom burger you asked for because food isn’t my art M.O. ⁠
Drea = m I n i N a t u r e (say it with me😋)⁠
.⁠
But I took your challenge to another level and painted the mini nature reason for eating mushroom burgers instead. This cute little fella’s name is MooShroom. He lives in a field of fungi. He wants me to tell you this:⁠
.⁠
“Meat and dairy provide just 18% of calories and 37% of protein, but it uses the vast majority – 83% – of farmland and produces 60% of agriculture’s greenhouse gas emissions. Other research shows 86% of all land mammals are now livestock or humans.”⁠
.⁠
What a clever heifer! Also, his manure patties (that’s the original beef patty I’ll have you) make for epic nutrients for ALL sorts of plants to grow – including – wouldn’t you know it.. mushrooms. The magical kind😬⁠
