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 Indianapolis, IN.
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

Richardson, this year's fourth overall draft pick, sustained an AC joint sprain against the Titans on Oct. 8. In the days since, the Colts' medical staff, in conjunction with other specialists across the country, has been deliberating on the next steps for the team's franchise quarterback.
Those conversations led to the final decision, Irsay said.
"After consultation with our medical staff, Anthony, and those close to him, it has been determined that he will undergo surgery to repair his injured shoulder, which will end his season," Irsay wrote in a post on X.
The parties felt strongly that surgery was the best option practically from the beginning, a source told ESPN, but the doctors wanted to take their time and consider all available information. Not all shoulder sprains require surgery, but among the chief factors that made a procedure the best option, according to the source, is the fact that Richardson is a quarterback. The necessary range of motion and movements associated with playing the position made it an easier choice.
"We collected several medical opinions and we felt this was the best course of action for his long-term health," Irsay wrote. "We anticipate a full recovery and there is no doubt Anthony has a promising future."
Coach Shane Steichen said the decision was always going to be about the future.
"That's a huge part of it," Steichen said. "You take the guy fourth overall, [he's] a tremendous competitor, great player. The longevity of him needs to be at a premium, so this is the best thing for him moving forward."
Richardson has had a hard time coping with the reality of missing so much time, Steichen said, but the coach thinks there's an opportunity for him to grow.
"This will be a great learning experience for him moving forward," Steichen said. "He'll be engaged, he'll be in the meetings, he'll be at practice, and he'll learn this year sitting back and watching and learning ... When you go through tough times, it'll make you stronger and this is a tough time for any player. [It's] your rookie year, you want to be out there with his teammates. I know he's crushed about it, too. But I think it'll help him make stronger."
The Colts (3-3), now face the prospect of playing the rest of the season with backup Gardner Minshew under center. They lost a Week 6 meeting with the Jaguars in which Minshew committed four turnovers.
"This is Gardner's team, and we got a ton of confidence in Gardner and his abilities moving forward in this offense," Steichen said.
Richardson ends his season having appeared in four games, completing 50 of 84 pass attempts for 577 yards and three touchdowns. Richardson also rushed 25 times for 136 yards, scoring four rushing touchdowns. His dual-threat status proved difficult for defenses, but it also exposed him to hits. Richardson was injured on a designed run, with Titans linebacker Harold Landry driving Richardson's shoulder into the turf on a tackle.
But Steichen is reluctant to suggest Richardson needs to change his playing style.
"We'll cross that bridge next year when we get there," Steichen said. "But, again, [it's] one of the things that makes him really good as a runner, and a lot of those guys around the league that run and make plays. That's what helps your offense."

QB Deshaun Watson did not practice on Wednesday as he continues his rehab process from a right shoulder injury.
Yet, HC Kevin Stefanski is not ruling Watson out for Sunday's game against the Colts, as Watson continues to make progress. However, if Watson is not able to play on Sunday, P.J. Walker would start against the Colts.
Watson is also taking the approach of day-to-day throughout the week, but he does believe there is a chance he will play in Week 7.
"I think so," Watson said when asked if he would play Sunday. "It just depends on the process of the medical stuff and the treatment and the rehab that we're doing day to day. So, it's up in the air for sure."
On Wednesday, Watson described the injury as one to his rotator cuff.
Watson first suffered the injury in Week 3 against Tennessee when he was hit on a quarterback keeper in the third quarter. Watson said that they did not know exactly what his injury was during the game. Watson described that when he was hit after he cut back off of block by G Wyatt Teller and when he cut back, the defender flashed and got up underneath him at the rotator cuff. Watson said he felt the hit instantly, but thought it was a normal football hit.
"It's a strain," Watson said on Wednesday. "It's a micro tear, so it's small. It's basically getting a cut on the hand, a couple of slashes on the hand of that muscle. And that's what a micro tear strain for the rotator cuff is."
Following that information, Watson said usually a player would sit out. However, he told the medical staff that he wanted to try going through a workout pregame and test it. So, Watson went through that pregame warmup on Sunday morning before their matchup against the Ravens in Week 4, and then was later ruled out for the game.
Over the last few weeks, Watson has worked through rehabbing the injury. With a rotator cuff injury, Watson said it's difficult to throw the ball, along with the movement, rotation and mobility elements associated with it. He is trying to work through any lingering pain, as well as determining his control of the football when he throws and the velocity at which he throws. Watson said that his throwing has been trending upwards, and he's been following the plan that the medical staff has put in place.
Watson said he also doesn't want to step out on the field and feel hesitant when he throws the ball. His mindset is putting the team first as works to return.
"I'm not going to put the team in jeopardy if I can't do certain things that is going to allow us to be handicapped in certain situations," Watson said. "So that's the reason why I haven't been able to step on the field."
When Watson returns to the field, he said he doesn't want to have to change his style of play in running the ball. However, he knows that he has to protect himself better out on the field.
The last three weeks have been hard for Watson as he navigated the injury. It's the first time he's dealt with a rotator cuff, so he said he's been working to get as comfortable as he can to go out on the field and perform at a high level.
"It's definitely frustrating," Watson said. "I want to be on the field. We felt like after the Tennessee game we were getting the ground running for this offense and then as all three phases. But as part of the game, it comes with it. I got to deal with the adversity and just take it as it come and continue to be a leader as I am and keep helping the guys around me. And when that time comes, I can step on the field and go out there and help the team win."

Indiana should be expecting its first freeze this week based on historical National Weather Service data. Instead, we will be seeing 70-plus-degree temperatures next week.
So, what is bringing the warmth and when can we expect fall frosts to return?
According to Matthew Eckhoff at the National Weather Service office in Indianapolis, we are currently experiencing a low-pressure system called a trough that has brought in these colder temperatures, low clouds and rain showers, but next week, there will be a ridge that will bring in a sweep of warmer weather to Central Indiana.
"We're going to have warmer air streaming in from the south where it's still kind of warm this time of the year," Eckhoff said.
Next week you can expect some warmer temperatures in the 70s as a result of the ridge. Typically, Indiana is experiencing colder weather this time of year with Indiana's first frost and freeze dates during the month of October.
According to Eckhoff, we have experienced some colder temperatures so far this season that potentially hit the first frost point, but we are not expected to see any more of that soon.
"We have already experienced some low temperatures that can result in frost — it has been as low as 38 degrees here at the Indianapolis Airport — but I don't expect to see any more frost for the rest of this month based on current data," Eckhoff said.
While it is expected to be warmer than usual over the next couple of weeks, there remains a chance that it may get cold for a day or two in that time period.
According to meteorologist Aaron Updike, Weather is more susceptible to change quickly during the fall.
It all depends on how the pressure systems develop. At this point, Updike says it is too soon to tell what type of weather November will bring.
Keeping an eye on the extended forecast is the best way to stay up to date on the changing weather.

Richardson sustained an injury to the AC joint in his right (throwing) shoulder on a running play in the second quarter of the Colts' Week 5 win over the Tennessee Titans. The 2023 No. 4 overall pick was placed on injured reserve last week as he and the Colts gathered extensive information to determine the best course of action for Richardson.
This week, Richardson and the Colts determined that course of action would result in surgery.
Richardson's rookie season will end after four starts. He completed 50 of 84 passes (59.5 percent) for 577 yards (6.9 yards/attempt) with three touchdowns, one interception and a passer rating of 87.3. Richardson also rushed 25 times for 136 yards (5.4 yards/attempt) with four touchdowns.
The Colts will move forward for the rest of the 2023 season with a 3-3 record and veteran Gardner Minshew behind center. While Minshew threw three interceptions and lost a fumble in the Colts' Week 6 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, he had a hand in guiding the Colts to all three of their victories this season and owns the sixth-lowest interception percentage (1.7 percent) in NFL history among quarterbacks with at least 1,000 attempts.
After the Colts' loss in Jacksonville, wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. said he told Richardson to think less about how quickly he could return and more about the entire scope of his career.
"He's our franchise guy," Pittman said. "They brought him here to play for the next 15 years, hopefully. I told him, don't sell himself short for the long term.
"… He's definitely mentally tough. I think he's handling it well. It's always tough, just missing time and wanting to be out there and help and make an impact. He's definitely feeling it but he's handling himself well and he's doing everything right."
On Monday, Oct. 16, Bob Dylan took his Rough and Rowdy Ways tour to Murat Theatre in Indianapolis for night one of two in The Hoosier State. During the initial stand, Dylan and his band treated the audience to a first-time cover of John Mellencamp’s original, “Longest Days.” The song initially appeared on the “Jack and Diane” singer’s 2008 release, Life, Death, Love and Freedom.

On Monday, Oct. 16, Bob Dylan took his Rough and Rowdy Ways tour to Murat Theatre in Indianapolis for night one of two in The Hoosier State. During the initial stand, Dylan and his band treated the audience to a first-time cover of John Mellencamp’s original, “Longest Days.” The song initially appeared on the “Jack and Diane” singer’s 2008 release, Life, Death, Love and Freedom. The choice cover was a geographical homage to the writer, Mellencamp, born in Indiana.
In fitting fashion for this tour, Dylan relied heavily on delivering material from his latest project, his 2020 set for which the run is named, but not before dipping back into the archive and starting the evening on “Watching the River Flow” and “Most Likely You Go Your Way and I’ll Go Mine.” Next, he turned to recent material, adding “I Contain Multitudes” and “False Prophet.” Next, the musical bard added fan favorite “When I Paint My Masterpiece,” which rolled into “Black Rider” and “My Own Version of You.”
Taking the eighth slot on Monday night’s setlist was “I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight,” which preluded “Crossing the Rubicon” and “To Be Alone With You.” “Key West (Philosopher Pirate)” unfolded before “Gotta Serve Somebody” and “I’ve Made Up My Mind to Give Myself to You.” Dylan segued into a trio of covers next, including Johnny Mercer’s “The Old Black Magic,” which arrived prior to the debut Mellencamp moment. Audio of the first-time take on “Longest Days” was uploaded to YouTube and can be streamed below.
As has been a trend on the road, Dylan nodded toward long-forgotten days touring alongside the Grateful Dead, reprising their original tour anthem: “Truckin’.” Monday night’s frame continued with “Mother of Muses” paired with band introductions and a return to music on “Goodbye Jimmy Reed” and “Every Grain of Sand,” which saw the troubadour pick up the harmonica and add some breathy blows into the instrument–which marked the end of the concert, sans encore.
The following night, Tuesday, Oct. 17, Dylan returned to the hollowed concert location, picking up night two in the same vein as the night prior. During the show, Dylan once again added “That Old Back Magic” paired with the Mellencamp cover. Rather than proceed with the Dead’s “Truckin’,” Dylan swamped in another tune that’s been making its rounds on the road: Chuck Berry’s “Nadine (Is That You?).”
In continuation of Rough and Rowdy Ways, Dylan will take a few nights away from the stage and will return on Friday, October 20, in Cincinnati. Tickets remain on sale and can be purchased here.
