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 Atlanta, GA.
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

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- It’s jarring at first, the unexpectedness when you see the face of Atlanta Falcons head coach Arthur Smith. Now in his third season, he’s gone through a variation of facial hair. There’s been the clean-shaven period, the bearded look.
And now, there’s how Smith started training camp this week: With a mustache.
“It’s a lifestyle change,” Smith said. “It’s not for everybody.”
It’s also been in the works for about a month for both Smith and his defensive coordinator, Ryan Nielsen. The mustachioed duo began their growth in June, when Smith and Nielsen went to Europe as part of a USO Tour, along with players Feleipe Franks, Younghoe Koo and Lorenzo Carter and Steve Cannon, a West Point graduate and Airborne Ranger who is the vice chairman of Arthur M. Blank Sports and Entertainment.
They met with troops, toured bases and the Falcons committed to funding the construction of a USO base in Bulgaria.
Koo called the trip “a humbling experience” to see how troops live their lives daily and what they go through and the sacrifices they make to protect the United States. Smith, whose father served in the military, said they traveled throughout Eastern Europe to places he never expected to visit, including Romania.
“It gives you a lot of perspective,” Smith said. “Certainly, going to Eastern Europe was eye-opening in a great way and getting to visit those troops, you realize how young they are. Eighteen, 19, 20-year-old soldiers when we were visiting the US Army post.
But in the downtime, Smith and Nielsen found something else to do -- start their facial hair journey. Nielsen, who had a beard pre-mustache, said it’s been “a long time” since he’d been clean-shaven and that his beard “had its time,” and now “it’s the ‘stache.”
“You get on a trip with a bunch of guys and stuff happens,” Nielsen said. “This is one of the outcomes.”
To be clear, the mustache plan is not a superstition thing. It’s not a harbinger of luck or hope. It is not tied into the Falcons upcoming season and neither Smith nor Nielsen committed to having mustaches for the entire season. But it’s been a point of conversation among the players during training camp.
Koo said Smith asked him to also grow out a mustache, but the Atlanta kicker knew it was not a look he could pull off. Koo tried. It failed. But it’s created a buzz throughout the Falcons locker room.
Franks started to grow a mustache, as did linebacker Troy Andersen. Carter said they talked to him about growing a mustache but “I couldn’t rock the ‘stache like the coaches do. But hey, I love it. I love it…for them.”
“Can’t really say what I want to say,” running back Cordarrelle Patterson said. “But I f----- love it.”
CHICAGO -- Max Fried dominated through six innings in his return from the injured list, and the Atlanta Braves cooled off the Chicago Cubs 8-0 ...
Major league-leading Atlanta earned its third straight win and sixth in seven games overall.
Fried allowed three baserunners, all on singles, in his first start since May 5. He had been sidelined by a left forearm strain.
Fried (3-1), a runner-up for the National League Cy Young Award last season, struck out eight before exiting after 72 pitches. The 29-year-old left-hander retired his first 12 hitters with no hard contact.
"I felt sharper than expected," said Fried, who had four rehab starts in the minors. "I had a lot of nervous energy, just looking forward to this day for a long time."
"I really just tried to simplify it and and keep us in it as long as we can," he added. "These guys have been doing so good for so long. I just want to kind of seamlessly fit it and not try to mess anything up."
The Braves look even more imposing after Fried's velocity topped out at 97 mph.
"I honestly didn't think he'd be that sharp," Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said, "but that was pretty good and very impressive."
Cody Bellinger finished with two of Chicago's four hits. The Cubs had won three straight and 13 of 16.
"Fried was pitching like an ace," Chicago manager David Ross said. "He had real stuff, in the zone, mixing multiple pitches, kitchen sink thrown at everybody."
Fried improved to 5-0 against the Cubs for his career. He earned his first major league win at Wrigley Field on Sept. 3, 2017.
The Braves, who lead the majors with 209 home runs, went deep consecutively for the the second straight game and for the 14th time this season.
"I've never been part of an offense that can do that," Murphy said. "It feels like at any inning, any point we can explode for a whole bunch."
Brad Hand, acquired from Colorado at Tuesday's trade deadline, relieved Fried in the seventh to make his debut with the Braves. He allowed a hit in one inning.
Chicago starter Kyle Hendricks set down the first nine Atlanta batters. Hendricks (4-6) was charged with seven runs and eight hits in four innings

ATLANTA — An Atlanta woman is filing a lawsuit against Popeye’s and several employees of the location she visited last September.
Denetra Dawson says she went to the Popeye’s on Cleveland Ave. to get dinner for her children. She says her order was wrong, so she went to the drive-thru to have it fixed, but says the employees inside weren’t listening to her.

Dawson says she pulled up to the window and employees began yelling at her because she was holding up the timed drive-thru.
One of the employees then came outside, opened Dawson’s passenger door, climbed into her car and began attacking her. Dawson says the employee ripped her hair out of her scalp, leaving a large bald spot.
Police identified the three employees involved in attack as manager Tenister Evans and her sister and daughter. The other two employees have not been identified.
“They recovered and saw her braid that they ripped out and said we ripped that ‘B’s’ hair out of her head,” attorney Mawuli Davis said.
“It took my identity. I took pride in my hair,” Dawson said. “I didn’t even think I was going to make it back to my kids.”
A representative for Popeye’s Restaurants released a statement that read:
“We have absolutely no tolerance for violence of any kind in Popeyes restaurants. The franchisee of this restaurant confirmed the incident took place in September 2022, and the employees involved were immediately terminated. We cannot share any additional details as there is an active lawsuit related to this incident.”
All three women were charged with battery, but Evans received an additional charge of obstruction of an officer.
Channel 2 Action News found that Evans has been arrested for assault several times before. Channel 2 Action News found at least four other mugshots of Evans.
“I just pray that what happened to me doesn’t happen to anyone else and that I get justice,” Dawson said.

The 2023 Atlanta Braves are the best Braves team of all time.
I don't say this lightly.
To have the greatest Braves team of all time conversation, I think you need to step back to the '90s-to-early-aughts Braves squads, the dynasty that won 14 straight division titles. That's something I don't think we'll ever see again — 14 straight from 1991-2005.
But throughout that entire stretch, the Braves won one World Series; in 1995. I would actually argue that was not the best Braves team of that stretch. I would say the 1998 Braves team was the best Braves team throughout that entire run. They had four players hitting over 30 homers, led by Andres Galarraga with 44.
I was the biggest Braves fan in the world growing up. I loved watching Galarraga, Chipper Jones, Andruw Jones, Walt Weiss, Ryan Klesko and then that pitching staff with John Smoltz, Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux and Kevin Milwood.
That team was stacked, and they went on to win 106 games. Chipper hit .313 that year. Glavine had 20 wins. All three of those future Hall of Famers in the rotation had a sub-3.00 ERA. But in classic MLB playoffs fashion, that team didn't even win the pennant, losing to the San Diego Padres in the National League Championship Series. It's a good reminder that there are no guarantees in October.
So with that caveat, I do believe that this current team is better than the 1998 Braves.
Ronald Acuña Jr. is a bona fide superstar, the biggest star on this team. He just reached 25 home runs and has 51 stolen bases, and is now the fastest player in MLB history to reach the 25-50 mark — in just 106 games. That's just incredible. If not for a certain two-way superstar in Anaheim, Acuña would probably be considered the best player in baseball right now.
Then you have Spencer Strider, the fastest pitcher in history to reach 200 strikeouts in a season — beating his own record, which he set as a rookie last year while topping the old record of Hall of Famer Randy Johnson, one of the best strikeout artists of all time. To already one-up that this year, it's remarkable how good he's been. He was my NL Cy Young pick this year, and so far, I feel good about that.
Next we have Matt Olson, who has the most home runs in the National League and is at Shohei Ohtani's heels for the MLB lead. As of this recording, he has 37 bombs. He's finally getting the credit he is due. Consider this — over the last six seasons, nobody across all of Major League Baseball has more home runs than Olson.
The Braves offense as a whole — with Austin Riley, Acuna, Olson, Michael Harris II, Orlando Arcia, Ozzie Albies and the rest of that lineup — are on pace for 311 home runs, which would break the all-time record for team home runs in a single season. (The 2019 Minnesota Twins currently hold that mark with 307.)
Pitching-wise, the Braves have Max Fried returning Friday from a left forearm strain that has kept him out for the past three months. Kyle Wright should eventually come back before the end of the season. Oh, by the way, Fried was the 2022 N.L. Cy Young runner-up and Wright led all of MLB in wins last year.
Yet despite those injuries, the Braves still have three starting pitchers currently in the top 12 on the qualified ERA leaderboard — Strider, Bryce Elder and Charlie Morton — the only rotation in baseball to do so. That pitching staff leads all of baseball with a 119 ERA+, meaning they are a whopping 19% better than league-average as a staff.
I said earlier that I doubt we will ever see the streak of 14 straight division titles set by the 1990s-2000s Braves topped, but let me amend that — I think if anyone can do it, it's this current edition of the Braves. They already have five straight N.L. East titles and are well on their way to a sixth.
Yes, it's going to be tough in a talented division. The Phillies have superstars all over their lineup. The Marlins are very good, very young and have a dominant starting rotation. The Mets are clearly retooling right now, but they still have Steve Cohen as an owner and a very bright future thanks to all those prospects they got at the trade deadline.
But the Braves are just so good, and with the way they have been able to develop, acquire and maintain this core of players, they are poised to be this good for the foreseeable future.
But don't just take my word for it about the 2023 Braves. Several weeks ago, I asked my FOX Sports colleague, Hall of Famer and member of those 1990s Braves teams John Smoltz, this exact question — is this the best Braves team we have ever seen? Obviously, he has a very valuable perspective here.
"This team is equipped to do anything they want," Smoltz said then. "Offensively, they're gifted. Their speed is through the roof. Their pitching staff is more than adequate. I think that if they have health in their rotation and decent depth, which is important today, this could be the best baseball team the Atlanta Braves have trotted out in a long time if ever, going back to the days of Hank Aaron. I can't think of a better offensive squad than what they have from top to bottom."
I don't need much more confirmation than that. The 2023 Braves are the greatest team that franchise has ever put out on a baseball field.
