There is so much more to Mediterranean food than pizza and pasta. The perfect climate combined with delicious foods and amazing wine makes the Mediterranean incredibly irresistible. That's why our customers absolutely love to buy this kind of cuisine in bulk. Every country in this region has its own set of specialties and delicacies, each with its own flavors and styles of preparation.
Mediterranean countries include:
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 Kansas City, MO.
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

KANSAS CITY, Mo. —
It's one of the greatest times of need for animals in the history of Kansas City, and it's now the largest adoption event in Kansas City history.
Kansas City Mega Match, happening this weekend, hopes to find homes for 1,000 pets in the greater Kansas City area.
Eight area animal shelters are teaming up with national nonprofit organization Petco Love, and BOBS from Skechers as part of what organizers are calling a lifesaving collaboration.
From Oct. 20-22, all pet adoptions at these area shelters will be just $25: Great Plains SPCA, Humane Society of Greater Kansas City, Kansas City, KS Animal Services, KC Pet Project, Lawrence Humane Society, Melissa's Second Chances, Midwest Animal ResQ, and Wayside Waifs.
Links to all shelters involved, their hours, and available pets can be found here.
Officials with KC Mega Match said animals across the metro, and even across the nation, have been experiencing record-breaking numbers this year and are packed with pets in need of homes.
All adopted animals will have undergone a spay/neuter surgery, be microchipped, up to date on vaccinations, and more. All potential adopters will still have to go through the full application process.
A spokesperson for KC Pet Project said this past summer was the busiest the shelter has ever had. KCPP found itself with a critical capacity problem and, despite being a no-kill shelter, was transparent about the fact that some animals struggling in the shelter environment would have to be euthanized.
Meanwhile, the shelter has seen a triple-digit increase in animals impounded due to evictions.
Other area shelters haven't been spared by similar struggles. At Wayside Waifs, officials organized vaccination clinics to help keep pets healthy, assist with food, and more, to cut down on the number of animals being surrendered. Great Plains SPCA featured Scooby, a dog who had been at the shelter for 300 days, in Newsweek — a global online magazine. Still, he garnered no interest. Shelter officials said stress to Scooby became to be a quality-of-life issue, and they feared they may have had to put him down.
Can't help by adoption? Officials say you can still share information on the event on social media.

Maikel Garcia's rookie season couldn't have been much better. He hit well, fielded well, and appears to be the long-term third base fit the KC Royals have searched for since they traded Mike Moustakas to Milwaukee in the summer of 2018.
Proof of just how good Garcia's 2023 season was is in the numbers. He hit .272, doubled 20 times, and stole 23 bases. He had the best OAA and DRP among American League third basemen, and was second-best in those metrics in the majors.
But this writer's choice for Royals Rookie of the Year isn't winning, or reaping nominations for, any national awards. For example, his superb hot corner defense wasn't good enough for those who nominated three other AL third basemen for the Rawlings Gold Glove Award.
And he didn't make the grade for the recently-revealed MLB Pipeline 2023 All-Rookie Team. Pipeline chose Texas third-sacker Josh Jung instead.
Whether Jung was a better choice than Kansas City's Garcia is debatable.
To be sure, simply wondering if Garcia should have beaten out Jung for the All-Rookie team is no knock on Jung. Jung, who the Rangers snatched up in the first round of the 2019 amateur draft (he was the eighth overall selection), had a stellar rookie campaign, slashing .266/.315/.467 with 23 homers and 70 RBIs while appearing in one less game (122) than Garcia.
Only in home runs and RBIs, though, was Jung remarkably better in traditional metrics than Garcia; KC's third baseman homered only four times and drove in 20 fewer runs than Jung.
But Garcia stole 22 bases more than Jung, who swiped only one. And Garcia wins out defensively — Jung's OAA was 5, his DRP 4, while Garcia mars of 13 OAA and 10 DRP.
So, what made the difference? Three things, probably. Home runs, a category in which Jung was so much better than Garcia, are more glamorous and attract more attention than other offensive feats, Jung's OPS+ and wRC+ considerably outdistanced Garcia's, and Jung plays on a highly successful team, something Garcia may not enjoy for some time to come.
(And just to fuel the debate fire a bit, Minnesota's Royce Lewis, who hit .309 with 15 home runs and a .372 OBP in only 58 games, beat out Garcia for Pipeline's All-Rookie second team).
Who, then should have been Pipeline's third baseman? The answer is, as they say, in the eyes of the beholder, but Garcia certainly merits being included in the conversation.

Halloween is in 11 days, which means it's about time to pick out a costume. For NFL teams, that means it's time to decide the direction of their franchise because October 31 is also the league's trade deadline this season. According to ESPN, the Indianapolis Colts, Green Bay Packers, Carolina Panthers and Kansas City Chiefs have all looked into the prospect of acquiring wide receiver help lately. Here is a look at four receivers who could be worth looking into over the next week-and-half.
LV • WR • #17
Davante Adams is one of the best wide receivers in football. His 17 receiving touchdowns are the most in the NFL since the start of the 2022 season. He has also been named a First-Team All-Pro in each of the last three seasons. However, his goal isn't to just be one of the great receivers of today. Adams wants to be known as one of the best wide receivers of all-time and conclude his football journey in Canton, Ohio as a Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinee.
Through his first nine NFL seasons, Adams recorded 769 receptions for 9,637 receiving yards and 87 receiving touchdowns. Only one other player in league history has topped 750 catches, 9,500 receiving yards and 85 receiving touchdowns in their first nine seasons: Pro Football Hall of Famer Marvin Harrison.
However, Adams' Hall of Fame trajectory may be in peril if he sticks around in Las Vegas for much longer. He has gone three straight games without a touchdown or 100 yards receiving from Weeks 4-6. This also occurred in Weeks 13-15 last season, his first with the Raiders. The last time that happened to him as a Green Bay Packer, his NFL home for his first eight seasons from 2014-2021, was Weeks 14-17 of the 2015 season, his second year as a pro.

Adams also hasn't been incredibly satisfied with the Raiders' team performance during their 3-3 start this season, saying, via KSNV News 3 Las Vegas, "You can win a game and look shitty, and we've done that too many times."
He initially came to the Raiders to win and keep putting up numbers in an effort to prove he can do both without Aaron Rodgers. Adams made one of his points with the First-Team All-Pro season in 2022. If he truly wants to win and keep his Hall of Fame dreams alive, he would be better off somewhere else.

Everything can change in two years in the NFL. In 2021, Hunter Renfrow totaled 103 catches for 1,038 receiving yards and nine receiving touchdowns to earn the first Pro Bowl selection of his career. Then, the Raiders rewarded him with a two-year, $32 million contract extension in the 2022 offseason. However, he just hasn't been fit in head coach Josh McDaniels' offense since 2022. His best attribute is his ability to ad-lib his routes and drift into open space to make himself available for his quarterback.
McDaniels' offense is predicated on structure, and that has simply been a bad fit. This season, Renfrow has just six catches for 59 yards on nine targets despite playing in all six games. He has only been targeted twice in the last two weeks, including not at all in the Raiders' 21-17 win against the New England Patriots in Week 7, a game in which he had only seven offensive snaps. It doesn't help that Las Vegas signed former New England Patriot Jakobi Meyers to a three-year, $33 million contract this past offseason to play a similar role as Renfrow out of the slot.
Renfrow is only 27, and he could still provide plenty of value to another team's offense should he be given a chance to succeed, something not currently present with McDaniels.

The Denver Broncos are a mess in Year 1 under new head coach Sean Payton. They are off to a 1-5 start, tied for their worst six-game start in team history. The defense has allowed 33.3 points per games this season, the most in the NFL. Even when their defense does well, they still lose. Denver lost 19-8 at the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs in Week 6. They have allowed fewer than 20 points in 12 games since the start of the 2022 season, but they have a record of 4-8 in those games.
While Payton said the Broncos "aren't looking to do business" with their players before the trade deadline, they have already done so, flipping defensive lineman Randy Gregory to the San Francisco 49ers and releasing outside linebacker Frank Clark.
Courtland Sutton (37 targets) and Jerry Jeudy (29 targets) have been the most utilized pass-catchers in Denver's offense this season, but Denver would be wise to attempt to flip them for more draft compensation. Sutton has four receiving touchdowns already this season, the same amount he had in each of the prior two seasons combined. Jeudy was the 15th overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, so there may be some teams out there willing to bite on the 24-year-old given his draft pedigree. Both would be better suited elsewhere in a less dysfunctional environment.
ReactionsLike125Interesting1Former United States women's national team manager Vlatko Andonovski has been hired as head coach and sporting director of the NWSL's Kansas City Current, club sources confirmed to ESPN.Andonovski, 47, returns to the city where he previously won consecutive NWSL titles in 2014 and 2015 with the side...
Andonovski, 47, returns to the city where he previously won consecutive NWSL titles in 2014 and 2015 with the side then known as FC Kansas City. The team was effectively relocated to Utah for three seasons before returning to Kansas City as an expansion team ahead of the 2021 season.
Kansas City had been without a permanent manager since April 19, when it fired Matt Potter. The team had been managed on an interim basis by Caroline Sjoblom, with the team failing to make the NWSL playoffs after finishing in 11th place out of 12 teams.
The season of struggle comes just one year after the Current reached the NWSL final, losing to the Portland Thorns 2-0.
The Washington Post was first to report Andonovski taking the role of head coach, while the The Equalizer first reported that he was also expected be sporting director.
The appointment is the first for Andonovski since he resigned as manager of the USWNT in August. His departure came in the wake of the team's round-of-16 exit at the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup, the worst finish at a major tournament in the program's history.
While Andonovski's record with the U.S. was 51-5-9, his record in major tournaments was just 3-2-5 (games decided by penalties are officially recorded as draws).
Andonovski's previous managerial experience came at club level, both indoors with the Missouri Comets and as well as with FC Kansas City and Reign FC (now OL Reign) in the NWSL.
He succeeded Jill Ellis as USWNT manager in 2019 as the team was celebrating its second consecutive World Cup title. At the time of his hiring, Andonovski had the support of veteran players, who lauded his player-management skills. But cracks began to appear at the Tokyo Olympics, with the U.S. looking well short of the side that won the World Cup in France two years earlier, even as it claimed a bronze medal.
As the 2023 World Cup approached, the U.S. continued to rack up wins in friendlies, but the team struggled against top sides. Late in 2022, the USWNT lost consecutive matches to England, Spain and Germany, its first such losing streak in 29 years.
Once the World Cup started, Andonovski faced criticism for his lineups and inability to make in-game adjustments, particularly his unwillingness to use his bench.
Now Andonovski will return to the league and the city where he enjoyed his best moments as a manager.
He'll have plenty of support, too. Owners Chris and Angie Long as well as Brittany Mahomes, wife of Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes, have made a considerable investment in the club. They spent $15 million on the team's training center, which opened in June 2022, as well as $120 million on CPKC Stadium, which is set to be completed in 2024.

For months, patrons have been walking past the 1940s streetcar in the River Market, peeking in and asking Andrew Cameron, owner of Donutology, when his newest location would open.
The former occupant, gift shop and cafe company Made in KC, moved out of the 426 Delaware St. spot this summer.
“This is a cornerstone in the River Market,” said Deborah Reiman, an area resident who stopped by on opening morning to have a doughnut on the streetcar’s patio. “To see it unoccupied was sad.”
But on Friday Cameron woke up, opened his new sprinkle-covered patio umbrellas and watched his first customers walk up to the streetcar’s ordering window at 7 a.m.
While Donutology’s second location serves flavors found at its original 1009 Westport Road spot — fruity pebbles, old fashioned, pumpkin spice — he has more plans for the streetcar spot.
He hopes to get his liquor license soon so he can begin serving breakfast cocktails. On Friday he teased a doughnut beer in the works.
“We’ve been talking with some other local distilleries about some other collaborations we can do,” Cameron said.
Before the trolley housed glazed doughnuts and iced coffee, it ran Kansas City’s rails from 1947 to 1957. Later, from 2006 to 2016, “Trolley Tom” was on display at Union Station. Then Denver-based developer and owner of the streetcar, Epoch Developments, moved it to the River Market.
In 2018, Made in KC moved in and began selling flavored lattes from the trolley’s walk-up window.
Meanwhile, Cameron knew he wanted to expand his business, but he wanted his next spot to have some sort of offbeat flair.
He appreciates the funky art deco style of his original shop. His Westport location moved into the site of a former dry cleaning business, which had occupied the brick building since the ‘40s.
“It had to be in a vibrant neighborhood,” Cameron said. “Something that nobody would really think of to do.”
Earlier this year, Made in KC, which sells Donutology doughnuts in their cafes, approached Cameron about taking over.
“No-brainer,” Cameron said.
River Market residents who frequented the Made in KC coffee shop won’t be deprived of caffeine, either. Like his other store, the new Donutology will serve specialty coffee drinks. While Donutology sells regular-sized doughnuts, it’s known for its miniature version of the pastry, which comes in flavors like candied bacon and s’mores.
Cameron said little construction was required to transform it into a doughnut shop. He added some colorful window wraps but kept the interior tables from Made in KC.
“We’re just excited to be here,” Cameron said. “The River Market’s a happening area.”
The trolley location will be open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.
