So, when it comes to the most popular wholesale Mediterranean products in Austin,
what are we talking about?

Feta Cheese

Feta Cheese

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.

Baba Ganoush

Baba Ganoush

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.

Baklava

Baklava

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!

Most Popular Wholesale Middle Eastern Foods

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.

Tabbouleh

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.

Shawarma

Shawarma

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.

Hummus

Hummus

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.

Benefits of Eating a Mediterranean Diet

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:

Reduced Risk of Heart Disease

Reduced Risk
of Heart Disease

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.

Reduced Risk of Stroke for Women

Reduced Risk
of Stroke for Women

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.

Benefits of Eating a Mediterranean Diet

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.

Try these tips:

1.

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.

2.

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.

3.

Try planning out your meals using beans, whole grains, and veggies. Don’t start with meats and sweets.

4.

They’re tasty, but try to avoid processed foods completely.

5.

Instead of using butter to flavor your food, use extra virgin olive oil instead. Olive oil contains healthy fats and tastes great too.

6.

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.

Why Buy Mediterranean and Middle Eastern Products Wholesale?

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.

“Interimaginary Departures” public art installation brings new out-of-this-world destinations to AUS

AUSTIN, TX – A whimsical new public art installation has arrived at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS), transforming one of the terminal’s gate areas and adding 120 fantastical new air service destinations to the airport.

Located at Gate ∞ [Infinity symbol], in between Gates 12 and 14, “Interimaginary Departures” is an immersive and interactive piece by Brooklyn-based artist Janet Zweig. The development and installation of the artwork was commissioned by the City of Austin’s Art in Public Places Program and funded through Austin-Bergstrom International Airport’s Terminal Expansion Capital Improvement Budget. In the form of a regular AUS gate area which is mysteriously merging with slightly off-angle room from an alternate world, the experience features a variety of audio and visual elements designed to transport travelers to fictional worlds beyond.

“The opportunity to transform a hold room in an airport into a magical space has never been offered to an artist,” wrote Zweig, in the project’s design narrative. “It will be a one- of- a- kind artwork, and will distinguish the airport as a unique location for experiential art and a place with a playful sense of humor.”

Inspired by 3-D computer rendering and The City and The City by China Mieville, a novel about two cities existing within the same space, the reimagined hold room also draws inspiration from across the worlds of science fiction and fantasy.

The piece features two screens displaying rotating flight information for hundreds of imaginary destinations, from the Wizard of Oz’s Emerald City to Gallifrey, the home world of Doctor Who’s Time Lords. Every three minutes, an overhead loudspeaker provides amusing boarding information about updates on some of the otherworldly locations.

“Being dedicated to sharing exciting and unique art with the public is part of what makes Austin special.” said Gina Fiandaca, Assistant City Manager over the SD23 Mobility Outcome. “This piece in particular celebrates Austin’s ‘weird’ spirit while also recognizing our continually expanding role in the tech industry.”

Travelers can also visit a cast bronze touch screen kiosk, where a brief survey asks them multiple choice questions such as, “Are more things smaller than you or larger than you?” before printing out a souvenir boarding pass to their next interimaginary destination.

“’Interimaginary Departures’ represents the culmination of four years of hard work by a world-class artist, local Austin fabricators, as well as City of Austin staff,” explains Sylnovia Holt-Rabb, Acting Director for the City of Austin Economic Development Department. “It’s one of the most complex public art projects we’ve ever commissioned, and we’re excited to share it with Austin residents and visitors.”

The AUS Chief Executive Officer, Jacqueline Yaft, said that she sees the piece as something to also improve the passenger experience.

"Travel can oftentimes be a stressful experience and art installations like this can play a huge part in helping travelers relax while on their journey," she said. "As air service continues to expand here in Austin, this work shows that if you can imagine it, AUS can help get you there."

Interimaginary Departures was made possible through the City of Austin’s Economic Development Department, overseeing Art in Public Places program which allocates 2% of eligible capital improvement project budgets to commission or purchase art for that site. Established by the City of Austin in 1985, Austin was the first municipality in Texas to codify a public art program. The current collection has grown to over 300 pieces.

Red Cross declares national blood crisis — what could it mean for Austin?

AUSTIN (KXAN) — The American Red Cross announced Monday national blood supply levels had dipped to less than a day’s worth of blood of key blood types being available at donation centers across the country, triggering the first-ever “national blood crisis.”

In a statement, officials noted the prolonged impact of the pandemic paired with winter-based storms have led to reduced donation rates, impacting daily supplies.

The nation’s blood supply remains at one of its lowest levels in recent years. In recent weeks, blood centers across the country have reported less than a one-day’s supply of blood of certain critical blood types — a dangerously low level. If the nation’s blood supply does not stabilize soon, life-saving blood may not be available for some patients when it is needed.

AABB, America’s Blood Centers and the American Red Cross

Here in Central Texas, We Are Blood’s vice president of community engagement Nick Canedo could lead to delayed medical services.

“The impact would be that we would need hospital systems that work to constantly conserve the amount of blood that they are using on a daily basis, which could lead to delays and surgeries and some treatments being unavailable for patients and in the worst possible circumstance,” he said. “Blood not being available for traumas where the blood donations are urgently needed. So that’s why we need to strike a new — basically a new equilibrium with the amount of donations we’re collecting, to meet this enhanced need in our community.”

Currently, We Are Blood also follows national trends and has approximately one day’s worth of blood supply in its inventory. This past December, We Are Blood reported 600 more donations were required than in December 2020, marking an 18% increase.

Amid Central Texas’s own population growth and an uptick in trauma needs due to accidents, trauma incidents and increased hospital capacities, that need will only continue, he added.

“The drivers of the need in our community are really just a new normal, versus a spike or a mass casualty incident,” he said. “It really means that we need to increase, overall, our community blood supply to a new level so we can maintain adequately the supply our hospitals have on hand for patients.”

We Are Blood operates three donor centers and hosts mobile donor drives across its 10-county coverage area. For information on how to schedule a donation appointment, click here.

Stop using these: FDA warns some COVID-19 tests could be giving false results

AUSTIN (KXAN) — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is asking people to stop using LuSys Laboratories COVID-19 tests because they have not been approved by the FDA and “there is likely a high risk of false results.”

The FDA reports tests may also come under the name Luscient Diagnostics, Vivera Pharmaceuticals or EagleDx. The FDA believes that these tests were distributed for use in laboratories and for at-home testing.

KXAN has checked with several local testing companies and public health agencies and did not find any that were using the tests. Austin Public Health confirmed their sites did not use the tests, so did large testing companies across Central Texas such as Curative.

Luscient Diagnostics’ website notes: “our COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test has been submitted to the FDA EUA for review” but does not address the FDA’s concerns.

If you are a healthcare professional, the FDA recommends contacting and retesting patients. If you are someone who took one of the potentially faulty tests, you’re asked to retest using a different brand.

Dr. Desmar Walkes, the Austin-Travis County health authority, says even though antigen tests may not detect omicron as well as PCR tests do, they are still recommending that people use them as a way to regularly screen for COVID-19.

If you’re experiencing symptoms though, Walkes recommends getting a confirmatory PCR test before returning to work or school.

“For sure, if someone is symptomatic and they receive a negative antigen test they should still self-isolate, not go out into public, not go to work, not go back into school until there is established that it is negative with a PCR test,” Walkes said.

The FDA does have a list of tests approved for use. KXAN has a list of places to get a COVID-19 test in Austin here.

If you suspect issues with a COVID-19 test, the FDA is asking you to report it to the MedWatch online voluntary reporting form.

AUSTIN, Texas — As Amazon plans to expand its presence at The Domain in North Austin, the company says it will need to hire thousands of more workers.

In a press release inked Tuesday, Dec. 21, the tech giant announced it has signed a lease for a 330,000-square-foot office space at The Domain, a shopping mall in North Austin. This new office space is in addition to Amazon's three existing offices at The Domain.

When the new office space opens in early 2024, the company plans to hire more than 2,000 people. Those roles will be in the departments of operations technology, Amazon Retail, Amazon Business and Amazon Web Services. Amazon will hire senior data engineers, senior technical program managers, user experience designers and financial analysts

The site lead for Amazon's current offices said the company has hired more than 3,000 people and has more than 1,000 corporate and technology roles currently open in Austin. You can check out job listings online.

“Our continued investment in Austin is a testament to the amazing talent and amenities that this city has to offer,” said Doug Gray, the site lead.

The Austin expansion is part of the company's nationwide effort to grow. Amazon said it plans to create a total of 3,000 jobs across Austin, Chicago and Phoenix, and within the past year, 750 jobs have been posted in Houston and Dallas.

Amazon isn't the only tech company expanding in Austin and Central Texas.

Samsung recently announced it had selected Taylor, Texas, as the site for its $17 billion chip manufacturing facility. Earlier this month, Tesla officially moved its headquarters to the new Gigafactory in Austin.

Austin Chamber of Commerce provided the following statement on the expansion:

“This year was a home run for the Austin region. 2021 saw all-star companies like Tesla, Apple and Samsung making big moves and announcing major investments in Central Texas. And it’s not just tech giants shaking things up: smaller scale businesses like Green Dot and Markaaz also made their Texas debuts with new Austin headquarters. Local small business, after finding impressive talent and rapid success, are expanding their own footprints and contributing massively to this increase in new job postings. Each of these companies have made it clear that they are seeking out some of the most diverse talent and dynamic business environments in the world.

"There is a reason we have seen such incredible growth over the last twelve months. Companies all over the US and the world are recognizing the opportunities that the Austin region has to offer. They see that we have been building an education system that cultivates graduates across a number of different industries: from tech to life sciences to automotive. Our region has a relatively low cost of living, especially when compared to other tech hubs like Silicon Valley and New York City. And we have maintained that steadfast, perpetual mantra of “Keep Austin Weird” at the heart of everything we do.

"We don’t anticipate this influx of growth slowing down. For every new company making their way to the Austin region, there are hundreds more learning about the many benefits to doing business here. Whether that company is a startup looking for its first office space, or a tech giant expanding their footprint, we have welcomed numerous organizations here with open arms, and we plan to continue this advancement in the years to come.”

Austin family’s Christmas display raises $80K for Make-A-Wish foundation

AUSTIN (KXAN) — When Austin resident Jordan Maywald was a kid, his annual holiday tradition was stringing up Christmas lights with his dad. That tradition has continued into his 20s — give or take a few extra lights and 15,000 visitors.

For seven years, the Maywald family has hosted its annual Maywald Christmas Light Display, located at 10505 Twilight Vista in Austin. The walk-through holiday event’s proceeds benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

This year, the Maywalds welcomed more than 15,000 visitors to their holiday display, raising more than $80,000 to fund 10 wishes. To date, the display has raised nearly $200,000 and granted 27 wishes.

“Nobody used to come out here. We’d always be like, ‘oh, is that a car coming to see our Christmas display?'” he said, smiling. “And now it’s like, the cars won’t stop coming.”

Each year, Jordan looks to up the ante of the display, scouring Facebook Marketplace and Craigslist for unique and interesting finds. This year’s newest staple? A 17-foot-tall fiberglass Santa Claus.

“You don’t see that really anywhere else, and who puts that in their front yard?” he said. “But we do because we just love Christmas so much.”

Traditionally, the Maywalds have set a goal of $50,000 in funds raised for each season. This year, they superseded that by more than $30,000.

The Maywalds chose Make-A-Wish as its charitable beneficiary because of the ability to meet the children receiving the wishes. Those wishes have ranged from a young boy visiting Disney World with his family, to sending a girl to New York to shadow a photographer whose work she admired.

The wish that sticks out in Jordan’s mind though is one of a young girl who dreamed of having a scavenger hunt through the Maywald’s Christmas lights display. The Maywalds helped scatter gifts and clues across their property as she explored and completed the task.

The Maywalds recently learned that young girl had passed in October. But Jordan’s hope, and his determination behind this annual display, is that she was able to experience a moment of joy and levity every child deserves to have.

“Just to see, in that moment, her smiling? That’s what it’s all about.”
