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 Long Beach, CA.
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

Playoff hopes hang in the balance tonight as Lakewood hosts Wilson in Moore League football action. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
Lakewood (3-5, 2-2) is coming off a bye week and can take a stranglehold on third place in league with a win, while Wilson (3-5, 2-3) needs a victory in its league finale to keep its postseason hopes alive.
“We’re feeling re-energized coming off of a much needed bye week.” Lakewood coach Justin Utupo said. “(Wilson coach Scott Meyer) is doing a great job at Wilson. They have two great running backs, so our Red Swarm defense is up for the challenge.”
Wilson running backs Laighton Scott V and Christian Chapman are both averaging over 100 yards rushing per game while scoring a combined 17 touchdowns. The two sharing carries is new for the Bruins after Scott V sat out because of transferring and Chapman sat out because of injury. Scott V is averaging 8.6 yards per carry in six games, and Chapman is averaging 9.6 yards per carry in five games, according to MaxPreps.
The Bruins are coming off a heartbreaking loss to Jordan at home last week when a spirited comeback attempt fell short. Wilson is trying to make its first playoff appearance since 2019.
Lakewood has had a lot of time to stew about its lopsided loss to rival Millikan two weeks ago. Utupo and his team feel like a more specific offensive game plan would’ve helped them in that game, and will be key to success this week.
“Offensively we’re still trying to find our identity and this week we focused on fine tuning the things that have worked best for us all season,” said Utupo, who started coordinating the offense a few weeks ago.
Sophomore quarterback Kade Casillas is averaging 186.6 yards passing per game with a 106.1 quarterback rating, according to MaxPreps. JT Dacoud has been his go-to target with 40 receptions, 617 yards and seven of Casillas’ 13 touchdown passes.
This game also has a special wrinkle because Meyer teaches at Lakewood.
“I have a few of the current Lakewood players in my classes this year, and had several last year that are still on the team,” Meyer said. “It is always a strange week in that sense, but they are great kids and good players so it will be a lot of fun.”
Last year, Lakewood beat Wilson 41-0 and the Bruins haven’t beaten the Lancers during a full season since 2019.

LONG BEACH — Long Beach Poly girls volleyball first-year coach Gerald Aquiningoc wants his team to understand that it’s fine being boring at times.
After Poly finished off a 25-15, 25-18, 25-20 sweep Thursday against Notre Dame of Sherman Oaks in the opening round of the CIF Southern Section Division 3 playoffs, the example he used with his team was the NBA’s San Antonio Spurs.
“They just dominate, but it’s boring and they stick to their system,” Aquiningoc said. “That’s what we gotta do.”

Poly (25-9) started slow, picked it up through the second set and the start of the third, then hit a lull twice en route to the victory.
The Jackrabbits, co-champions of the Moore League, will host Crean Lutheran (17-5) in Saturday’s second round. First serve is scheduled for 6 p.m.
“I think it was more mental, just a little bit of mental fatigue,” Jackrabbits middle blocker Kristen Dear said after notching a match-high 12 kills. “It’s like, OK, we’re so close to the finish line and we can see it. But we still need to focus on what we’re doing and do our job all the way to the end.”
Poly jumped out to an 8-2 lead in the third set before Notre Dame (12-15) immediately responded with a 9-3 spurt to tie the frame.
The set was tied three more times, the last occasion at 16-16, before the Jackrabbits found separation. Kalia Teofilo had three of Poly’s 11 service aces during the key 8-0 stretch to get to match point.
The Knights battled back once more to pull within 24-20 before a serve sailed long to end the contest.
FINAL : Long Beach Poly moves on to the 2nd round of the @CIFSS girls volleyball Division 3 playoffs.

“When they try to get fancy and cute and make the spectacular play, bad things are happening,” Aquiningoc said of the finish. “We get a lot of errors, they’re playing outside of themselves, they’re trying to do too many things, and we just need to make the right play, not the extravagant play.
“We were really, really, really high on energy and it was sometimes not to our benefit just because the heartbeat is too fast and they’re just trying to do too many things. … That’s what happened at the end there. They were feeding off the crowd — “L-B-C!” — and swinging to the wall.”
Outside hitter Mahlia Priestley paced the Knights with eight kills and a block.
Notre Dame coach Jon Dazé, in his first year with the program, said the effort was consistent with what he’s seen from a team that battled injuries throughout the season while trying to establish a culture for the future foundation.
“That’s been our character all year,” Dazé said of a program that finished third in the Angelus League. “We’re not the type of team that’s going to quit.
“We just couldn’t quite find our stride. On top of a new head coach and new regime, we had to make adjustments and so by the time playoffs came, at least we had that to fall back on, the fight.”
To open the contest, Poly battled through a 9-9 tie in a start marred by a violation or attack error on all but two of Notre Dame’s points.
That’s when Dear and fellow middle blocker Layla Moore got the Jackrabbits into a flow. Moore finished with seven kills and three blocks, with all but four kills coming in the opening frame.
“Our first touch, serving was really strong to the areas we were supposed to serve to,” Dear said. “A lot of our first passes were good…which made it easier on everyone else.”

Poly opposite hitter Saniya Kimbrough then added balance, collecting eight of her nine kills over the final two sets, to help keep Notre Dame from loading up at the middle of the net.
“She’s got a really live arm and she’s just able to power through blocks,” Aquiningoc said. “She played a really big role to keeping their block split and keeping us in 1-on-1 situations.
“We were able to do what we wanted. I knew this game was going to kind of be an ugly one just because there’s unsaid pressure — this program hasn’t won a first-round playoff game in a very long time. … But we talk about learning how to win in any kind of way and we got a good win (Thursday night).”

California’s labor commissioner on Tuesday ordered the Hyatt Regency Long Beach to pay nearly $4.8 million in fines for failing to offer jobs to workers who had been laid off during COVID-19 shutdowns.
The hotel did not offer job positions in a timely manner to 25 employees, including restaurant servers, bartenders, housekeepers, cashiers and stewards, according to a Tuesday news release by the office of Lilia García-Brower, the state labor commissioner. The fine will be paid to the affected employees.
The citation comes under California’s “right to recall” law, which mandates that employers in hospitality and building services industries, as their business operations come back online and return to pre-pandemic levels, offer available job openings first to those who had been laid off during the pandemic.
The law, Senate Bill 93, went into effect in spring 2021 but was intended to end on Dec. 31, 2024. On Oct. 10, Gov. Newsom signed SB 723, which extends the right of recall for employees in the hospitality and building services industries until Dec. 31, 2025. Building services jobs include janitorial, building maintenance and security services.
“Some of these employees had as much as 24 years of experience, and were suddenly out of work due to a public health emergency,” García-Brower said in the Tuesday release. “The employer failed to offer them their old jobs back in compliance with the law.”
A general manager overseeing the Hyatt’s Long Beach properties did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Aug. 17, 2023
Unite Here Local 11, the union representing workers at the Hyatt Regency location, said the fine is the largest issued under the right to recall law to date. The union has said the law, which requires jobs be offered in order of seniority, prevents businesses from using the pandemic shutdown to replace older workers — including many women and people of color — with younger, lower-paid staff.
The labor commissioner’s office said its investigation — which began in September 2022 after receiving complaints from Hyatt Regency Long Beach workers — included subpoenaing the hotel, interviewing workers, and conducting depositions of human resources managers.
The law allows damages of $500 per worker for each day the employer does not follow recall rights afforded to employees by the law. In the Hyatt Regency case, the state determined there had been 8,983 total days of violations.
The state issued its first right to recall citation in March 2022, to the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, ordering $3.3 million in fines. Terranea appealed the fines, saying the law was vaguely worded. Several months later, in July, the upscale hotel reached a settlement with the state, agreeing to pay $1.52 million without admitting wrongdoing.
Tuesday’s citation represents just the latest dispute between the Hyatt Regency Long Beach and its workers. In February, two housekeepers filed what is intended to be a class-action lawsuit against the hotel, claiming they weren’t paid double-time in accordance with a local ordinance and often missed their legally required 10-minute breaks because of heavy workloads.
It was the first lawsuit to be brought under such local ordinances in Long Beach and other California cities backed by Unite Here Local 11 and other unions that seek to regulate hotel working conditions — requiring housekeeper access to panic buttons and more compensation for heavier workloads. The litigation is pending.
