So, when it comes to the most popular wholesale Mediterranean products in Austin,
what are we talking about?
Feta cheese is a classic Mediterranean dairy product that is often enjoyed on its own, in Greek salads, on bread, or mixed with zucchini. Depending on where the feta is sourced and produced, the cheese can be made from cow, sheep, or goat milk, or even a combination of the three. Regardless of the animal it comes from, this delicious cheese is a crowd favorite.
This Levantine dish is one of the most well-known Mediterranean dishes to eat in the United States. It typically comes in the form of a dip, served with pita or another kind of dipping bread. Commonly served before dinner as an appetizer of sorts, it usually features tahini, eggplant, garlic, spices, and sometimes yogurt. This tasty cuisine works great as a spread on a sandwich, or you can even eat it with a spoon, all on its own.
If you have never tried authentic baklava before, get ready to have your mind blown. This dessert is a traditional Mediterranean food that will have your taste buds craving more and more. Once you open a box of baklava from our Mediterranean grocery wholesaler in Austin, TX, you won't want to stop eating! Baklava is made with layers of thin filo dough, which is layered together, filled with chopped nuts (think pistachios), and sealed with honey or syrup. Baklava is so good that its origins are debated, leaving many wondering which country invented the dessert. Everyone from the Turks to the Greeks and even Middle Easterners hold unique takes on baklava. Try each one to discover your favorite!
Fresh, healthy, aromatic, rich: it's no wonder that the popularity of Middle Eastern cuisine and products has skyrocketed in the United States. This genre of cuisine features a large variety of foods, from Halvah to Labneh. If there were one common theme throughout all Middle Eastern food, it would be the bright, vibrant herbs and spices that are used. These flavorings help create rich, complex flavors that foodies fawn over. Typically, Middle Eastern food is piled high for all to eat, with enough food for an entire republic to put down.
This refreshing, healthy dish is chock-full of greens, herbs, tomatoes, and bulgur (or cracked wheat), creating a memorable, bold flavor. This dish may be eaten on its own or paired with a shawarma sandwich or helping of falafel. It's best to buy your ingredients in bulk to make this dish because it tastes best freshly made with family around to enjoy. Just be sure to bring a toothpick to the tabbouleh party - you're almost certain to have some leafy greens stuck in your teeth after eating.
We mentioned shawarma above, and for good reason - this dish is enjoyed by men and women around the world, and of course, right here in the U.S. Except for falafel, this might be the most popular Middle Eastern food item in history. Shawarma is kind of like a Greek gyro, with slow-roasted meat stuffed in laffa with veggies and sauce. The blend of spices and the smoky meat mix together to create a tangy, meaty flavor that you will want to keep eating for hours. For western-style shawarma, try using beef or chicken. For a more traditional meal, try using lamb from our Middle Eastern grocery distributor in Austin, TX.
Traditionally used as a dip meant for fresh pita, hummus is a combo of chickpeas, garlic, and tahini, blended together until silky, smooth, and creamy. You can find hummus in just about any appetizer section of a Middle Eastern restaurant menu. That's because it's considered a staple of Middle Eastern food that can be enjoyed by itself, as a spread, or with fresh-baked pita bread. Hummus is also very healthy, making it a no-brainer purchase from our grocery store.
If there's one diet that is most well-known for its health benefits, it has got to be the Mediterranean diet. In 2019, U.S. News & World Report listed the Mediterranean diet as No. 1 on its best over diet list. This incredible diet has been cited to help with weight loss, brain health, heart health, diabetes prevention, and cancer prevention.
Whether you already love Mediterranean food or you're looking to make some positive changes in your life, this "diet" is for you. Eating cuisine like Greek food, Persian food, Turkish food, and Italian food is healthy and tastes great. Even better than that? At Nazareth Wholesale Grocery, we have many staples of the Mediterranean diet for sale in bulk so that you can stock up on your favorites at the best prices around.
So, what exactly is the Mediterranean diet?
It is a way of eating that incorporates traditional Greek, Italian, and other Mediterranean cultures' foods. These foods are often plant-based and make up the foundation of the diet, along with olive oil. Fish, seafood, dairy, and poultry are also included in moderation. Red meat and sweets are only eaten in moderation, not in abundance. Mediterranean food includes many forms of nuts, fruits, vegetables, fish, seeds, and more. Of course, you can find at them all at our wholesale Mediterranean grocery store!
Here are just a few of the many benefits of eating a healthy Mediterranean diet:
Many studies have been conducted on this diet, many of which report that Mediterranean food is excellent for your heart. Some of the most promising evidence comes from a randomized clinical trial published in 2013. For about five years, researchers followed 7,000 men and women around the country of Spain. These people had type 2 diabetes or were at a high risk for cardiovascular disease. Participants in the study who ate an unrestricted Mediterranean diet with nuts and extra-virgin olive oil were shown to have a 30% lower risk of heart events.
In addition to the heart-healthy benefits of a Mediterranean diet, studies have shown that eating healthy Mediterranean and Middle Eastern foods can reduce the chances of stroke in women. The study was conducted in the U.K., which included women between the ages of 40 and 77. Women who stuck to the Mediterranean diet showed a lower risk of having a stroke - especially women who were at high risk of having one.
First and foremost, purchase your Mediterranean and Middle Eastern wholesale foods from Nazareth Grocery - we're always updating our inventory! Getting started on this healthy, delicious diet is easy.
Instead of unhealthy sweets like candy and ice cream, try eating fresh fruit instead. It's refreshing, tasty, and often packed with great vitamins and nutrients.
Try eating fish twice a week, in lieu of red meat. Fish is much healthier and doesn't have the unfortunate side effects of red meat, like inflammation.
Try planning out your meals using beans, whole grains, and veggies. Don't start with meats and sweets.
They're tasty, but try to avoid processed foods completely.
Instead of using butter to flavor your food, use extra virgin olive oil instead. Olive oil contains healthy fats and tastes great too.
Try to get more exercise and get out of the house. The Mediterranean lifestyle is an active one, best enjoyed in the beautiful sunshine when possible.
Buying wholesale and retail are quite different. When you buy products from a wholesaler, you're essentially buying from the middleman between a retail establishment and the manufacturer. Wholesale purchases are almost always made in bulk. Because of that, buyers pay a discounted price. That's great for normal buyers and great for business owners, who can sell those products to profit. This higher price is called the retail price, and it is what traditional customers pay when they enter a retail store.Free Estimate

A Texas man is following in a family tradition with his own "great big adventure" riding on horseback from Austin, Texas to Seattle, Wash.
Cyril Bertheau joined "Fox & Friends" Tuesday to discuss where the idea to travel by horse came.
"It's a family tradition for each one of the oldest sons of my family on my dad's side, the Bertheau, to do a great big adventure. And it's kind of a rite of passage, if you will," Bertheau said.
"So my great-grandfather started it, and then my grandfather, then my dad, and then now it's me. So I combined that with my love for horses and horsemanship that I've been riding for years and just went for it."
Bertheau quit a six-figure tech job to prepare for his adventure, which he plans to do in 100 days. He also bought his horse Shiok on Craigslist ahead of the trip.
NEW JERSEY MAN IS WALKING ACROSS USA FOR ‘UNACCEPTABLE’ NUMBER OF HOMELESS VETERANS
"[The employers] did say unlimited PTO, but no, I quit my job and just went full all in and started training and started preparing. And now I'm making the big leap."
On Sunday, the horserider had a sendoff at Zilker Park in Austin, Texas. He plans to ride through New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho before arriving in Seattle where he will stay for about a week before making the trip home.
Pulling from his passions, Bertheau chose to ride horses since he had been riding since he was little. His father, who is from Holland, chose a different adventure for his "rite of passage."
In 1984, Bertheau's father Eric journeyed around the world for three years which was inspired by his father's travels and exotic postcards. He traveled through a variety of different transportation methods, seeing regions in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Australia and the U.S.
NEW YORK MAN CYCLING TO ALL 50 STATES REACHES ALASKA AND HAWAII: ‘WHAT I JUST DID WAS CRAZY’
"I took a backpack and asked my mother to bring me to a certain point, not far from home on the way to a job," Eric told FOX 7 Austin. "She put me there, and I put up my thumb, and that's how my trip started."
Since beginning his journey earlier this week, Bertheau has already endured some wild experiences.
"I had ridden through some muddy paths and some rocks had gone into [Shiok's] hooves. So I hopped off and started taking the rocks out and I slipped and fell on him, which spooked him a little bit. And then as I'm trying to reach back to get him, it spooked him even more. And I couldn't reach the reins in time. And he just took off," Bertheau said.
"So I started running down the street and I see this Mini Cooper come up and this lady comes out says, 'Hop in. My husband's going to drive you.' And so we run down and I just opened the door and stopped my horse."
Bertheau shared his optimism and excitement for the journey, specifically how he hopes to learn more about his country and the people that live across the U.S.

"I see this as a challenge. Mental, physical, spiritual," Bertheau explained. "So I think I'm going to learn about myself. I think I'm going to learn about the country I live in, the people I live with. I'm going to have what seems like insurmountable challenges ahead, and I'm just going to be ready to face them."
"I think people go to university and I sort of take this as the university of life. I'm just going to put myself in tough spots and I think I'll be a better man afterwards."

He previously worked at a number of high-profile restaurants in New York City, including the now-closed one-Michelin-starred restaurant A Voce and the three-Michelin-starred restaurant Daniel. In 2016, he opened his first restaurant, Yves, with partners Matt Abramcyk and Akiva Elstein. In 2018, Berg moved to Houston to work with his brother Benjamin at Berg Hospitality.
Bill’s Oyster will be open for dinner seven days a week from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m., for walk-ins only. Lunch and weekend brunch services will be added in the coming weeks.

Students at Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders walked out of class Tuesday in a show of support for reproductive rights and to mark the one-year anniversary of the leak of the U.S. Supreme Court’s draft decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, the consequential ruling last year that effectively overturned the national right to an abortion.
As part of the demonstration, students called on state lawmakers to listen to young people's voices and heed their recommendations when proposing bills that will affect them.
The students gathered on the school’s front steps to listen to speeches from their peers, including junior Lily Wilson, who said she wants lawmakers to incorporate proven analysis into their proposals and not just political rhetoric.
“I am tired of having the same conversations and repeating myself over and over again,” Wilson said. “We are all tired of our lawmakers ignoring the facts. Facts are true whether you ignore them or not.”
Former Texas abortion clinic opens in N.M. Now, new ads are targeting Austinites
Some students wore green, a color that alludes to reproductive rights movements in Latin America. They walked around the school chanting: “Our rights are under attack. What do we do? Stand up, fight back.”
Nicole Perry, a junior with the school’s chapter of No Place For Hate, an Anti-Defamation League initiative, said students wanted to do something to mark the anniversary of the Supreme Court's Dobbs decision.
“This was important to remind people the urgency is still there,” Perry said.
In its Dobbs decision, the Supreme Court on June 24 ruled that the Constitution didn’t reserve a right to an abortion, essentially overturning the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision and returning abortion regulation to states.
At that time, students at the Ann Richards school also held a walkout, said Feyi Oni, a junior and member of No Place For Hate.
“This is still an ongoing problem,” Oni said. “I don’t think anybody should be making rules about what to do with our bodies.”
During their demonstration Tuesday, students called out their frustrations with lawmakers. During this year’s legislative session, lawmakers have spent significant time discussing classroom issues and working on bills that narrow how teachers can discuss topics related to sex and gender.
Texas lawmakers have proposed several bills that would place limits on the topics a teacher can discuss with students. Senate Bill 8 by Sen. Brandon Creighton, R-Conroe, would prohibit districts from instructing students on gender and sexual orientation. SB 165 from Sen. Donna Campbell, R-New Braunfels, would require districts to get parental consent before teaching content with violence, profanity, nudity or sexuality.

However, Oni said that students need to feel comfortable talking about reproductive issues in the classroom. She worries students who don’t have access to sex education in school might go to peers searching for answers and possibly get incorrect or damaging information.
“Students shouldn’t have to resort to those sort of methods,” Oni said. “They should have an open forum.”
Because teachers are confined to a narrow set of topics on reproductive health, students often want more information, said Iris Nicholson, a sophomore who helped organize the student demonstration.
“There was a lot of questions that went unanswered,” Nicholson said.
Nicholson said she is perplexed by legislative proposals to prohibit teachers from talking about gender in classrooms because an adult’s marital status or preferred pronouns are often part of standard introductions, she said.
“How would you introduce people?” Nicholson said.

Perry said lawmakers shouldn't seek to restrict in-school talk about reproductive health because having a better understanding of the human body helps people make safer choices.
“The classroom is really where people go to learn,” Perry said. “Education is an equalizer. We’re hurting people’s opportunities to get a level playing field.”
The school helped the students coordinate the walkout and assisted with any safety concerns, interim Principal Ramona Trevino said.
“This is the leadership academic,” Trevino said. “We really want them to exercise their voice.”

AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Austin City council Thursday approved a resolution from council member Chito Vela directing the Watershed Protection, Austin Resource Recovery, and the Parks and Recreation departments to quickly clear creek beds of vegetative debris.
The resolution is in response to the more than 30 homes that were flooded in north Austin after the April 20 storm. Vegetative debris, such as dead trees, clogged a storm culvert in Little Walnut Creek, leading to heavy flooding in the area that damaged homes.
Those homes are in Vela’s district. He met with frustrated homeowners six days after the storm who said the flooding could have been prevented.
Ryan Albright, a homeowner in the area who had two feet of water in his home, said he and his neighbors called 311 multiple times to warn of the debris in the creek bed and the potential of flooding.
“We were informed that watershed relies on 311 requests to identify issues. We had already done that,” Albright explained.
Albright said vegetative debris from the winter storm built up around the creek bed. The resolution authored by Vela said the flooding was “exacerbated by additional damage and vegetation debris resulting from” the winter storm in late January and early February.
The resolution would also provide some type of financial aid for the homeowners. The resolution specifically mentions federal dollars that were given to Texas after the winter storm in late January and early February. Multiple tree limbs were broken because of that storm and neighbors say it’s what led to the storm culvert being clogged.
Council member Vela said of his resolution, “My resolution calls for both proactive and reactive action from the City. We must assist those affected by the Mearns Meadow flooding in seeking reimbursement, and we must also take precautions to prevent this from happening again.”
Albright estimates he received $10,000 of damage in his backyard and another $80,000 of damage to the interior of his home. His house is “uninhabitable” right now, with no floors, restrooms, or a kitchen. He and his wife are living in an Air BNB temporarily until the house can be fixed. Their flood policy does not cover the backyard damages or the temporary living expenses, Albright explained.
“The aid that is in there is necessary,” Albright said of the resolution.
