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 Los Angeles, 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

The NWSL postseason is a knockout-round format. Six teams advanced to the playoffs with three rounds of competition including two first round matches, two semifinal games (Nov. 5), and the NWSL Championship (Nov. 11). Each playoff game will be 90 minutes of regulation, and if the score is tied, two 15-minute periods of extra time will be played. If the two periods of extra-time has not determined a winner, then a penalty kick shootout will take place.
Megan Rapinoe (OL Reign): The longtime Reign player announced her impending retirement earlier this year ahead of the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup. She helped the team punch their playoff ticket on Decision Day when she scored twice on the road against Chicago. The two goals put her in second place in league history for most goal contributions with one club. She has 80 all-time goal contributions for the Reign across 129 matches and has one last chance to make some magic happen at home in Seattle.

M.A. Vignola (Angel City FC): The second-year Angel City defender has had a breakout season under interim head coach Becki Tweed. Her ability to cover ground and be an outlet on offense has aided the team in an impressive second half of the season. She's playing with more freedom at fullback and has become a proactive part of the attack. She provided the opening goal and recorded an assist during Angel City's playoff-clinching victory against Portland Thorns.
OL Reign: Make no mistake about it, the Reign struggled during their final stretch of the season. They enter the playoffs in streaky form, with a 2-2-2 record in the last six games, but are coming off a recent 3-0 win against last-place Chicago to close out the regular season. They have a winning record against Angel City across all competitions, and the veteran players to keep perspective and manage expectations. The postseason is where anything can happen, and getting Rose Lavelle and Sofia Huerta back for playoffs could be an x-factor advantage for the Reign.
Angel City FC: The Los Angeles side is the hottest team heading into the postseason. There's zero doubt that Tweed has the players bought in and ready to take on big opponents. They have only one loss in their last 11 games and finally picked up a win against the Reign in August at home during their unbeaten stretch. A 2022 expansion franchise with big ambitions. they're headed to the postseason in their second season, where anything can happen. The quarterfinal could be a chance for Angel City to level the West Coast competition after taking down Portland 5-1 on Decision Day.
Angel City has the form and OL Reign has the experience, it'll lead to early nerves before Reign gets settled and get the job done Pick: OL Reign 2, Angel City FC 1.

The Steelers wrapped up their preparation for Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Rams by practicing indoors at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex on a rainy Friday.
Tight end Pat Freiermuth, who was a full participant in practice on Wednesday and then limited on Thursday, didn't practice at all on Friday and has been ruled out for the game.
Linebacker T.J. Watt, who was added to the injury report on Thursday with a heel injury, was a full participant and isn't on the status report.
"It was minor. I feel great," said Watt. "I had a good day of practice today."
The Steelers are looking healthy otherwise. Receiver Diontae Johnson continues to work his way back after being cleared to return to practice this week. While he remains on the Reserve/Injured List and there hasn't been any word on whether or not he will be activated for Sunday's game, getting him back would be a huge boost for the offense.
"You're talking about who you're bringing back...what was Tae (Johnson), top five, six, seven targets last year in the NFL," said offensive coordinator Matt Canada on Thursday. "You're bringing back a guy like Diontae and his route running capability to do things like that. So, you talk about the passing game, just starting there, and it's going to change a little bit.
"You bring Diontae back and you've got George (Pickens) out there. With Diontae back, we've got some more weapons which you have to respect down the field. I think having speed all around, Calvin (Austin) is obviously really fast. We've got some guys that we think can run, and then you've got Allen (Robinson) inside.
"I think adding, getting some guys back just brings us more to our full arsenal of what we think we can do and be on offense. Not necessarily major play differences, but certainly a difference in how they have to adapt to who we've got out there. I think those guys draw some attention."
At left tackle, Dan Moore Jr. returned to practice this week and said he is feeling good.
"It felt really, really good," said Moore of being back at practice. "Amazing.
"Being away wasn't fun. Not being a part of that win a couple weeks ago, definitely missed out on a lot of fun, it looked like. Happy to be back this week, get rolling,"
Moore missed the Ravens game with a knee injury and rookie Broderick Jones, who was in a training camp competition with Moore for the starting job, stepped in.
Moore said he doesn't know what the situation is going to be this week.
"I show up and do what I am asked," said Moore. "That is it."
Jones also said he isn't sure what to expect, but is prepared for whatever comes his way.
"We still don't know yet to this point," said Jones.
Whether he knows or not, Jones will continue to prepare the way he has all season.
"It's the same way as always, prepare for the worst, always plan, just be ready whenever your name is called," said Jones.
The bye week fell at a time when the Steelers were dealing with injuries, allowing them to get some of their weapons back all across the board.
"It was getting a healthy squad back. We got a lot of people back, which was great for us," said Jones. "I feel like that was the main focus with the offense and defense. We had injuries on both sides of the ball. Just being able to get those guys back is a big plus."
Blake Shelton made wife Gwen Stefani cry at her Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony on Oct. 19 when he shared the sweet story of how the pair met as judges on "The Voice."“The first time that I ever met Gwen was in 2014.

Blake Shelton made wife Gwen Stefani cry at her Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony on Oct. 19 when he shared the sweet story of how the pair met as judges on "The Voice."
“The first time that I ever met Gwen was in 2014. She wasn’t like any other famous person that I had ever met before. She drove herself to work in a black minivan with car seats in it," the country music superstar, 47, told the crowd as Stefani, 54, laughed beside him.
"She didn’t roll in with security. She came in with a baby and two little boys, which at the time worked like security because nobody was going near — it was chaos," he joked.
The "Nobody But Me" singer said he could tell immediately that Stefani cared more about her sons Kingston, Zuma and Apollo — who were in attendance at the Walk of Fame ceremony — than stardom.
“It was clear to me that she was a mother first and foremost over anything else in the world — that was her No. 1 job,” he said as Stefani struggled to hold back tears.
“And now, standing here almost 10 years later after I first met her, I can say without question that being a mother is still the most important thing in her life. And I got to tell you all, that’s rare in this business," added Shelton.
In the summer of 2015, the pair formed a closer friendship as they supported one another during the simultaneous breakups of their marriages — Shelton’s to country star Miranda Lambert and Stefani’s to Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale.
Friendship grew into love, with the couple tying the knot in 2021.
During her Walk of Fame ceremony, Shelton joked that it was nice to see the devoted mom honored for her "side project" as "one of the biggest stars in the world."
He cited his wife's work both as an entertainer "from music, television and movies" and as a designer for her L.A.M.B. fashion brand.
"She has risen to the top over and over again with her unique style that has made the world fall in love with her," he said. Then, with a glance at Stefani, he added, "Not as much as me, though."
Shelton credited the "Don't Speak" singer with having a special star quality "that no one can ever explain."
"It’s that thing that she was just born with that will make you stop and go, ‘Wait. Who is that? What’s her name? What does she do? Why do I love her already? What the hell?'" he gushed as Stefani laughed again.
"That’s the thing that God gives you," he said. "And without question, God gave Gwen an extra scoop of it."
Shelton went on to call Stefani an "exceptionally talented" songwriter who has "blessed a lot of people’s lives" with her music.
"Now, I know firsthand that it takes a lot of people to make a hit record," he said, referring to the dozens of hits Stefani has scored both with No Doubt and as a solo artist.
"But none of this would have ever happened without Gwen Stefani, the songwriter. So congratulations to my all-time favorite songwriter on your star. You deserve this and I love you," he added.
Stefani, who by that point was wiping tears from her eyes with a tissue, shared a hug with her husband, telling him, "I said it'd make me cry."
The three-time Grammy winner later took to the podium to thank the special people in her life, including Shelton, whom she called her "best friend."
"You have given me the kind of love I never knew before," she gushed to him. "The minute I met you, I knew that I was home and I am so, so proud that you're mine. I can't believe it. I love you so much."

Even if confronted with loaded fries, I’ll do it. While still in my car after hitting a drive-through, I will be digging in prematurely at that container, my fingers probing desperately for my starchy prize, past layers of melted cheese, caramelized onions and pickles.
Reaching into a crinkly, grease-dotted bag of French fries elicits a specific type of joy. Like those claw machines at arcades, your hand roots around blindly, searching for that perfect specimen. For me, it’s long and thin with crispy golden edges, a fluffy center and coated in salt.
We are lovers of French fries in Los Angeles, and as our team has found below, many of our favorite restaurants and chefs take them quite seriously.
Give the name, you might assume that the dish at hand was invented in France, but Belgium argues that their history began in the Meuse Valley in the 1680s, when residents would substitute fried fish for potatoes during the winters when the river froze over. Though that origin story has been disputed, UNESCO added the dish to Belgium’s list of cultural treasures in 2017.
The U.S. has no stakes in its creation, but French fries nevertheless rose to become a popular side dish for meals that range from casual to fine dining. There’s record of fries being served for President Thomas Jefferson at a White House dinner in 1802, and by the 1940s, French fries were commercialized and sold frozen, a boon to the then-developing industry of fast-food chains and fast-casual diners, which Los Angeles was breeding ground to.
Within this sector of potato-derived dishes, there’s a whole world to explore — steak fries, curly fries, waffle fries, shoestring, crinkle cut, wedges, tater tots, poutine and so much more. Everyone has a differing opinion on the ideal fry consistency: Should they be crispy or soft? Fat or skinny? Do frozen fries achieve better crispness than potatoes that are chopped fresh?
No matter your preference, you’re guaranteed to find your perfect fry in L.A. Here, in addition to fries hand-cut from local artisan potatoes, you can expect a range of toppings that reflect a global assortment of cuisines. On this list, you’ll find 17 of the best, most indulgent fries in Los Angeles, including options loaded with Wagyu shawarma, pastrami, chicken tikka, carne asada and more, as well as simply seasoned options that stand on their own. And no, you don’t have to share. — Danielle Dorsey
