what are we talking about?

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

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

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 Louisville, KY, 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.

 Middle Eastern Market Louisville, KY

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 Louisville, KY.

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.

About Boston College:

After a fairly successful 13-20 debut a year ago, second-year head coach Earl Grant is continuing the large task of attempting to build Boston College men’s basketball back into a contender in the ACC. He returned four starters from that 2021-22 squad, but through 20 games this season, the results don’t appear to be particularly improved.

BC enters tonight’s game against Louisville at 9-11 overall and is the lowest-ranked ACC team outside of the Cardinals in virtually every metric. They dropped non-conference contests to Maine, Tarleton State and New Hampshire, but do have three conference wins to date. Two of those ACC victories came against Notre Dame, the most recent of which was an 84-72 road victory on Saturday.

The Eagles’ top overall performer is senior guard Makai Ashton-Langford, who has been playing college basketball since the David Padgett season of 2017-18. Langford is a crafty scorer and passer, who does his best work inside of the three-point line. He’s also one of the league’s most dangerous defenders, averaging better than a steal and a half per game in each of the last three seasons.

BC’s leading scorer is center Quinten Post, who missed the first 13 games of this season because of a foot injury. The 7-footer from Amsterdam has been terrific in recent weeks, and is coming off of a career-high 29-point performance in the win over Notre Dame. In that game, Post drilled in 4-of-5 three-point attempts and also corralled a season-high 14 rebounds.

Boston College has been a horrendous three-point shooting team for most of this season (29.2 percent, 342nd in D-I), but they’re coming off a season-best 11-for-19 effort in the win over the Fighting Irish. Even with that effort, the Eagles rank just 254th in the country in adjusted offensive efficiency. They’re a team that wants to win with defense, and that wants to play a subdued, halfcourt game for the most part. They’ll also be hoping that Louisville will continue its trend of turning the ball over at the highest-rate of any team in the country.

Notable:

—Louisville is 8-1 in games against Boston College since joining the ACC in 2014-15.

—Boston College is 341-203 all-time - and 67-82 in ACC games - played at the Silvio O. Conte Forum.

—On Thursday, Louisville added freshman forward/center Emmanuel Okorafor to the roster. Okorafor is a 6-foot-9 native of Lagos, Nigeria, and is eligible immediately after arriving from NBA Academy Africa.

—Louisville has already lost eight games by 20 points or more this season, the 20-point losses in one season in the history of Cardinal basketball.

—In conference play (nine games), BC is averaging nearly 11 turnovers per game, while posting a 1.20:1 ATR. During the non-conference, the Eagles were averaging nearly 3.0 turnovers more per game, with a 0.75:1 ATR.

—In five of Boston College’s nine wins, the Eagles have trailed or been tied at some point during the final 4:00 of regulation.In those games. Boston College has hit five baskets with under 2:00 remaining in regulation to either tie (VT) or go ahead for good (Cornell, Detroit Mercy, Rhode Island, Notre Dame).

—Louisville is 0-8 in conference play for the first time since going 0-11 in the KIAC during the 1939-40 season.

—Louisville began the season 0-9, the largest losing streak to begin a season in the history of the ACC. The Cardinals have currently lost eight games in a row.

—Louisville is 5-32 over its last 37 games dating back to last season.

—Louisville is 218-13 over the last 20 seasons and 15-1 over the last three when scoring 80 points or more. The Cards have eclipsed the 80-point mark just once this season.

—Louisville is 14-0 over the past 10 seasons when limiting opponents to no more than one three-point field goal.

—Since 2004, Louisville is 128-0 when leading by more than 10 points at halftime.

—Louisville has won 162 consecutive games when holding an opponent under 50 points.

—Louisville has won 157 consecutive games when scoring at least 85 points in regulation.

Louisville’s American Printing House For The Blind Is Getting A Facelift And A New Name For The Museum

The American Printing House for the Blind (1839 Frankfort Ave) is the leading nonprofit organization creating accessible books, products and learning tools for people who are blind and have low vision. After starting in 1866 with a single press to emboss books in the basement of the Kentucky School for the Blind, which sits right next door, APH now records talking books, creates braille and tactical graphics materials and products that continue to revolutionize access to those materials for those in the blind and low vision communities.

“It’s not just 165 years of creating braille, books, and products. It’s 165 years of innovation, determination, and creativity that has kept us going. This is the APH you still see today,” said Dr. Craig Meador, APH President in a release. “We know the best is yet to come, as we will continue to break barriers and create equal opportunities for individuals we serve.”

Now the campus is getting a facelift and brand new space for its museum.

The new renovations will total over 100,00- square feet of construction including an entirely new museum space which is changing its name to “The Dot Experience.” The Dot Experience is being designed with the input of those in the community they will serve. It is planned to be an experience that invites visitors to make changes in the world around them. The name change is an homage to the legacy of braille, a series of six dots in various combination forms letters, numbers and words and serve as (according to the release) “the code for communication and lifelong literacy for those who cannot see.”

“The Board of Trustees of APH is honored to support the work of this leading organization and the commitment to inclusiveness as the norm,” said Phoebe A. Wood, Board Chair in a release. “Our goal for the new museum and manufacturing tour is to become a significant visitor destination in Louisville, and also model what it is to be an inclusive museum and to share that with others.”

The project breaks ground this spring and will cover the current Bauhaus front of the APH building and add 19,900 square feet of space for the new museum.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Hard hats are required at Churchill Downs, where the iconic paddock is more of a construction site these days.

The paddock is undergoing a $200 million redesign. It won’t be finished until 2024, so there will be a temporary paddock at Derby 149 this year.

What You Need To Know

In all of his 15 years at Churchill Downs, Media Services Director Darren Rogers said he’s looking at the most transformative project yet.

“It’s amazing to see what it looks like today and imagine what it’s going to look like 13 weeks from now,” Rogers said.

A nearly $200-million-dollar redesign will more than double the paddock’s fan area and, perhaps most notably, the paddock stables will switch sides.

“They are digging out the saddling paddock right here, which will be in the middle. The stalls where the horses will be saddled will actually sit beneath the twin spires,” Rogers explains.

This means for the first time, fans will have the stables and the iconic twin spires within the same view. Also, the redesign is exposing and showcasing the original brick grandstand built in 1895.

“When we started to peel away and do some of the demo work, we actually brought the designers and architects back out here to try and incorporate as much of the old brick into the new design,” Rogers added.

From a second-floor balcony, Rogers has a complete view of the construction happening on the ground. Months into the project, the paddock has been completely stripped away. During this visit, earthmovers were spread out across the dirt and mud construction site working simultaneously.

The redesign is also adding more club space and track viewing options. “The old paddock, which was built in the mid-1980’s, was about 5,000 square feet,” he said.

The new Paddock will have 12,000 square feet and even with heavy construction traffic, Xavier Gareau and his grandparents say they haven’t been held back at all, visiting Louisville from Ottawa.

“We decided to stop down and visit the museum and we got to see the track and all the different stories and all the different winners,” the young Gareau said.

With as impressive as Churchill Downs and its history is it’s no surprise a paddock redesign is equally so.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A 15-year plan to restore equality within Louisville's park system was unveiled on Wednesday.

Louisville Mayor Craig Greenberg and the Parks Alliance of Louisville announced the Parks For All Action Plan. The long-term plan is focused on ending underfunding of the Louisville Metro Park System.

In 18 peer cities, the average cost per resident is $118, where as for Metro parks it is $43 per resident. As a result, 55 percent of Metro parks are now in "poor" or "fair" condition, according to a news release.

“Louisville needs a sustained infusion of new funds and an action plan to bring equity and excellence to every park in every neighborhood,” Mayor Greenberg said in a news release.

To address this inequality, the Parks For All Action Plan was created.

"This is a long term strategy and commitment from the residents of Louisville and the leadership in Louisville to be better and do better," said Brooke Pardue, Parks Alliance President and CEO.

Beginning in August 2021, the nonprofit Parks Alliance, with the help of nationally recognized park experts, analyzed the physical condition of every Metro park and its surrounding neighborhood.

In addition, a city-wide poll was conducted, asking what residents want from their parks. An overwhelming 900 respondents said quality, well-maintained parks was a top priority. 86% of the respondents said they want the city to invest in more resources to restore the parks, better daily maintenance, recreational programming and investing in new designs and amenities.

To get funding started, siblings Owsley Brown III, Brooke Brown Barzun, and Augusta Brown Holland made a "challenge pledge" of $1 million to attract public, philanthropic and business support.

According to a news release, the main components of the Parks for All Action Plan are:

Louisville Metro Council unanimously passed a resolution in December 2022 supporting the Parks for All Action Plan, and the search for a new Parks and Recreation Department director is underway.

The Louisville Metro parks system is comprised of 120 parks, 14 community centers, pools, golf courses, greenways, parkways, and two historic homes.
