Sometimes, when the weight of the world bears down, all we really need is a distraction. The options are near endless – you could do some exercise, see some friends or simply enjoy a nice meal.
But if all else fails, you could take a gander at this Instagram account: Hot Dudes and Hummus.
It’s probably not going to change the world.
Then again, hummus has been known to try and help solve plenty of problems.
Maybe hummus is a more powerful spread than we realise. In any case, this account sure is easy on the eyes.
But this is the only one that features one of our all time favourite dips made from chickpeas, tahini, lemon, garlic and salt.
Hot Dudes and Hummus (“Israel’s Yummiest”) came about when Israel-based university students Betty Ilovici, Orly Geduld, Ayala Lesser and Israel Zarin decided to create an “apolitical branding campaign for Israel to shed some light on the humour, diversity, fun, beauty and culture that are so vibrant and rich in this country,” Ilovici told Cosmopolitan in 2016.
The account took off more or less immediately, and now has more than 40,000 followers.
We can see why.
How good does that hummus look??
"We may not find the solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict [YET], but we know that there is no dispute over two of the greatest things in the world — hot dudes, and hummus,” Ilovici tells Cosmo.
We think she’s on the money – at least as far as hummus is concerned.
