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 Kansas City, MO.
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

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Pinpointing the Kansas City Chiefs' top wide receiver figures to be a weekly headache for fantasy football players.
Patrick Mahomes confirmed as much.
Mahomes warned fantasy football players that predicting his favorite receiver from week to week will be difficult as Kansas City's passing game adjusts to life without Tyreek Hill.
"The biggest thing is there's going to be a different player every single game that has the big game," Mahomes said Wednesday as the Chiefs continued preparing for Sunday's season opener at the Arizona Cardinals. "It's not going to be just necessarily Tyreek and Travis [Kelce] every single week, where it's like one or the other having a big game or both. Every single week, it's going to be someone different.
"So I'm sorry to all you fantasy football guys. It's going to come from everywhere, so you're going to have to kind of choose the right guy every week."
The Chiefs traded Hill, their leading wide receiver in each of the past six seasons, to the Miami Dolphins this past offseason.
Kansas City also returns Kelce, a seven-time Pro Bowl tight end, and one of its leading wide receivers from last season in Mecole Hardman.
Mahomes completed 18 passes to 10 different receivers in the preseason, and said that was an indication of how the passing game would go this season.
"It's going to be hard for teams to game plan against," Mahomes said. "Obviously, Travis is going to probably have a lot of catches. That's just who he is.
"Other than that, it's going to come from the whole group and I think the guys have kind of embraced that. ... That's what you want on a team and as an offense."

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Every season without fail, when the Chiefs get a week off from their 17-game regular-season NFL grind, Kansas City coach Andy Reid gets asked to explain his 20-3 record when his teams are coming off a bye.
And every season, without fail, Reid finds a way to answer the question without ever really answering it.
Turns out the same goes for his record in season openers.
The Chiefs head into their game at Arizona on Sunday having won seven consecutive openers, including three against teams that were destined for the playoffs and one that reached the Super Bowl. And overall, Reid is 8-1 since taking over the Chiefs before the 2013 season, including a perfect mark in five openers played on the road.
“I don’t know,” Reid said Wednesday amid another round of verbal shoulder-shrugging. “I appreciate the question, but right now, I don’t care about any of that. We just go execute and do the best we can this time of year.”
The reality is the Chiefs simply do that better than everybody else.
Take turnovers, which tend to pop up most among the unprepared. The Chiefs have not committed one in their last four openers, while their own defense has taken the ball away seven times over that span, and the last time they coughed it up — at New England in 2017 — they atoned for the miscue by piling up 537 yards of total offense.
In fact, the Chiefs are plus-6 in turnover margin in their nine openers under Reid, and that number would be even more remarkable if not for three turnovers in their opening loss in Tennessee to start the 2014 season.
Only two of their last seven season-opening wins have been by less than a touchdown.
It helps to have Patrick Mahomes under center.
The Chiefs quarterback has completed better than 71% of his passes in openers over the past four years, averaging more than 295 yards per game, and has thrown 13 touchdown passes without a single interception.
“We’ve put in the practice. We’ve put in the work,” Mahomes said, “and I’m excited to see these guys in game action. The preseason is one thing, but when you get to the regular season, you want to get out there and show what you can do.”
Everybody around the league has put in the work, though; all teams desire to start 1-0 every bit as much as the Chiefs.
So the question remains: What makes Reid and his bunch nearly unstoppable in Week 1?
“It’s all about the preparation with Andy, year-in and year-out,” Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones said. “Training camp is extremely tough and I think that translates to game week. The way he prepares us to be physically and mentally ready for when the season approaches, I think it’s beneficial for us as a team.”
It probably doesn’t feel like that in camp, when Reid insists the Chiefs uproot from their training base in Kansas City for three weeks of dorm life on a college campus. It’s there that Reid and his lieutenants push their players through sweltering late-summer practices with a decidedly old-school mentality designed to foster comradery and toughness.
“Bonding becomes important and you bond when you’ve got to do something tough,” Reid said. “I know some of them were hurting but they got up and they pushed through. That foundation will pay off for them down the road here.”
NOTES: The Chiefs placed TE Blake Bell (hip) on injured reserve this week. Everyone else on the roster practiced Wednesday, including DE Carlos Dunlap (Achilles inflammation), WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) and CB Rashad Fenton (groin). ... Smith-Schuster said he feels “100% healthy” after missing most of last season with an injury, then missing a good portion of camp with his sore knee. “Can’t wait to play,” he said. “It’s going to be a fun one.”

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A group of Missourians are suing the state of Missouri, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, the Missouri Housing Development Commission and the Department of Economic Development over the state's new homelessness law.
Of the group of plaintiffs, two live in southwest Missouri and the third lives in southeast Missouri. They are working with the Legal Service of Eastern Missouri and the Public Citizen Litigation Group in bringing the legal action.
The plaintiffs claim that House Bill 1606, which changes laws regarding political subdivisions, violates the state constitution.
Article 3 of the Missouri Constitution does not allow bills to focus on multiple subjects and should clearly state the subject in its title. The lawsuit says that while the bill's focus was on political subdivisions, a section was added that also addresses homelessness.
Section 67.2300 of the bill, which is set to go into effect Jan. 1, says that state spending on homelessness must apply to certain facilities and meet certain criteria.
"State funds otherwise used for permanent housing projects will be used to assist individuals with substance use, mental health treatment, and other services like short-term housing," the section says.
Additionally, any political subdivision that has a higher rate of homelessness than the state average will not be able to receive additional funding until its rate is lower than the average, or until ordinances addressing homelessness are enforced.
The section says that the first offense of misuse of state land for sleeping or camping will be a warning, while additional offenses will be class C misdemeanors. It also says political subdivisions within Missouri cannot prohibit enforcement of the restrictions. It also states that owners of private camping facilities are immune from liability.
Due to the addition of this section, the plaintiffs claim that the bill violates the constitution for containing multiple subjects, not clearly expressing the subject of the bill in the title and for changing the original purpose of the bill.
KSHB 41 News has reached out to Parson's office, Schmitt's office, the Missouri Housing Development Commission and the Department of Economic Development for comment. This story will be updated if a response is received.
