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 Memphis, TN, 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

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 Memphis, TN.

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.

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.

JONESBORO, Ark. — It was a little sketchy in the first quarter, but Memphis football picked itself up and cruised to an easy 37-3 victory Saturday at Centennial Bank Stadium.

The Tigers made some mistakes early, but quarterback Seth Henigan found Joe Scates for a 4-yard touchdown with 8:20 to go in the second quarter and rolled from there. Defensive back D.J. Ross scored on a pick-six a few minutes later, and the Red Wolves could never mount enough consistent offense to threaten a comeback.

Memphis (2-0) won an uncompetitive game for the second straight week; it beat Bethune-Cookman in the season opener 56-14. Though it was a rivalry game that has been close in recent years, the Red Wolves (0-2) lost 73-0 at Oklahoma in Week 1 and has big problems on both sides of the ball. Memphis was expected to win big and ultimately did.

Here are our takeaways from the game.

Seth Henigan lights up the Red Wolves

Tight end Anthony Landphere caught only one pass last week, a two-point conversion, but he made more of an impact on Saturday. He caught four passes for 27 yards, including a pair of third-down conversions in the first half. Scates, who missed last week's game with an injury, dropped a would-be touchdown early but redeemed himself when he hauled in a 4-yard touchdown in the second quarter.

Missouri transfer Tauskie Dove scored his first touchdown for Memphis, slipping behind the Red Wolves' defense for a 52-yard score to extend the lead in the second quarter. Henigan ultimately found eight different receivers.

Memphis running game struggled

A week after Blake Watson and Sutton Smith stole the show, the Tigers had trouble running the ball throughout the game. The Arkansas State defensive front had its way with the Memphis offensive line, especially during short-yardage situations. Watson had 10 carries for only 24 yards in the first half, and Smith rushed for just four yards on three carries.

Memphis fans were excited after Smith rushed for 115 yards and Watson scored three first-half touchdowns against Bethune-Cookman, so there's still plenty for the running game to work on. The Tigers were averaging only three yards a carry before opening things up in the fourth quarter with chunk running plays.

The Tigers won the turnover battle

Memphis was dominant against Bethune-Cookman but still managed to lose the turnover battle, something coaches were less than pleased with coming out of the game. That problem was solved against Arkansas State when the defense took control of the game, forcing three turnovers in the first half and forced another fumble late in the fourth quarter. The offense also avoided giving the ball away after Henigan threw two interceptions and Tevin Carter lost a fumble last weekend. Limiting turnovers obviously will be a key in conference play, and Memphis showed it's on the right track.

The Memphis defense got things going early

The offense had a bit of a slow start with consecutive three-and-outs, but the defense picked up where it left off after allowing less than 100 yards of offense to Bethune-Cookman. The Red Wolves moved the ball at times, but the Tigers managed to come up with key stops or turnovers when it mattered most. It was another good sign for defensive coordinator Matt Barnes' unit and inspired real confidence that this could be the best defense the Tigers have had in a while.

Conference play starts Thursday against Navy

It'll be a short week for the Tigers, who return home to kick off conference play Thursday against the Midshipmen at Simmons Bank Liberty Stadium. That means less time to prepare for Navy's triple-option, but the Tigers' defense has passed both of its tests with flying colors.

Navy is 1-1 after losing badly to Notre Dame but rebounding in a shutout over Wagner. Memphis beat Navy 37-13 last season in Annapolis and has won every meeting under coach Ryan Silverfield.

Grizzlies star Jaren Jackson Jr. put on blast following FIBA elimination

Throughout his five-year stint with the Memphis Grizzlies, Jaren Jackson Jr. has managed to establish himself as one of the NBA’s top-flight big men.From his defensive prowess that has earned him two All-Defensive nods and, last season, the Defensive Player of the Year award to his floor-spacing abilities that have seen him convert on three-point attempts at a 35.2 percent clip for his career, trip-J has become a quality and incredibly promising two-way ...

Throughout his five-year stint with the Memphis Grizzlies, Jaren Jackson Jr. has managed to establish himself as one of the NBA’s top-flight big men.

From his defensive prowess that has earned him two All-Defensive nods and, last season, the Defensive Player of the Year award to his floor-spacing abilities that have seen him convert on three-point attempts at a 35.2 percent clip for his career, trip-J has become a quality and incredibly promising two-way presence down in the frontcourt.

However, his high-end level of play didn’t seem to shine through during the 2023 FIBA World Cup while serving as the starting pivot for Team USA, which is something fans and media pundits alike have put on notice following the club’s elimination from the tournament with their semifinals loss to Team Germany on September 8.

Fans slam Grizzlies star Jaren Jackson Jr. following FIBA World Cup ouster

One fan went on to state that the Grizzlies big should consider sending back his DPOY trophy following his lackluster efforts on the less glamorous side of the ball during this summer’s World Cup.

Jaren Jackson has to mail his DPOY award back after this game. Guy can't stop a drive or grab a rebound against Germany right now

— Rachad Davis (@Rachaddavis) September 8, 2023

Another jokingly asked President Joe Biden to take away Jackson’s United States passport.

Joe Biden Need to take Jaren Jackson Jr passport

— Le5-6 (@deepyy_) September 8, 2023

One user bluntly put a large portion of the blame for Team USA’s loss on Jackson.

Biggest issue for USA in this tournament has been JJJ. They put their eggs on him being as impactful as he is in the NBA and he just wasn’t.

— Nate Jones (@JonesOnTheNBA) September 8, 2023

Early on in the festivities, fellow Team USA member Anthony Edwards was quite vocal about the big man’s foul struggles, with coach Steve Kerr even suggesting the big should consider toning down his physicality to avoid receiving whistles.

Coming into their contest against Germany, the Grizzlies big was averaging a grueling 3.0 personal fouls a game to go along with rather lowly counting stats of 8.2 points, 2.8 rebounds, and a mere 1.0 blocks on a putrid 28.6 percent shooting from deep.

During their final outing whilst in contention for gold, he would go on to drop just eight points and three boards in 19 minutes played.

The United States would go on to lose their bout against Germany by a final score of 113-111.

Recently, the folks at Bleacher Report constructed a hypothetical trade package that saw the Memphis Grizzlies ship centerpiece Ja Morant out to the New Orleans Pelicans in exchange for star big Zion Williamson.

As expected, fans and media pundits were rather awestruck by the idea, for the sheer notion of the franchise moving on from the superstar point guard at this point in time is nothing short of ludicrous.

With that being said, the piece by writer Zach Buckley did spark a rather jarring question for us at BSB: If the Grizzlies were to shockingly try and trade the likes of Morant, who would be an appropriate player to pursue in exchange?

It cannot be stated enough that no person in their right mind should believe the 24-year-old is at risk of being sent out of Gind City any time soon.

However, in the extremely unrealistic scenario where he’s actually being shopped by Memphis, there seem to be only three players worth parting with his services for.

The only players that might be worth the Grizzlies trading Ja Morant for

Should the Grizzlies ever wind up parting ways with Ja Morant via trade (again, something that no one should expect any time soon), such a move would create a vaccany at the club’s starting one position that, in turn, would be in need of filling.

With this in mind, why wouldn’t they consider looking to fill said spot with a player of the same position and who’s viewed as being on a similar level of stardom as Memphis’ current centerpiece?

Enter: Trae Young.

Though the two are often seen mentioned in the same breathe when it comes to the point guard tiers conversation, ironically the two couldn’t have more opposite skill sets.

Morant is more of an attack-the-rim brand of baller who relies heavily on his athleticism while Young is someone who prefers to hang around the mid-to-long range and thrives as a result of his finesse.

That said, swapping the former out for the latter could still easily have Memphis producing at a top-notch rate for the foreseeable future (the Hawks star will only be turning 25 this month), and could help aid in several areas within their game such as long-range shooting (ranked eighth-worst last season) and distribution, for Young has averaged a clip of 35.7 percent shooting from deep and has dished out 9.8 assists per game over the last three seasons compared to Morant’s 31.7 percent mark and 7.4 dimes over this span.

Though the Grizzlies guard is revered as a higher level talent by many fans and experts alike, in the catastrophic event in this alternate reality that he is moved, exchanging him for Atlanta’s lead guard would by no means be a poor consolation prize.

Former Memphis tennis star Joe Salisbury wins third straight US Open men's doubles title

NEW YORK — Rajeev Ram and former Memphis star Joe Salisbury were having a difficult year, struggling to win even a couple matches in a row.

Everything changed once they returned to the U.S. Open, where Ram and Salisbury dominate like no men's team in 110 years.

The No. 3 seeds captured their third straight title at Flushing Meadows, rallying to beat Rohan Bopanna and Matthew Ebden 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 on Friday.

“We knew we were having a tough time. But we put in the work starting kind of after Wimbledon was over, “Ram said, ”(realizing) that, this is the tournament that we know we can play well at, proven it before, and it wasn’t going to happen by accident.”

Ram and Salisbury extended their winning streak at Flushing Meadows to 18 matches. They are the first men's team to win three straight U.S. Opens since Americans Tom Bundy and Maurice McLoughlin from 1912-14.

Salisbury played at Memphis from 2010-14 and his 97 doubles wins with David O’Hare are the most in school history. Salisbury had 25 singles wins in his senior year which was a school record at the time.

Ram and Salisbury arrived in New York on a three-match losing streak and acknowledged losing some confidence. That's partly why Salisbury, from Britain, cried into a towel on his chair after the match ended.

“I don’t think I have ever cried after any matches, especially not ones that we have won, even at the Grand Slams,” Salisbury said. “But yeah, there is something about being here, about doing it again and I think doing it after the year we have had. We have had some struggles, had some pretty low times.”

The last time Ram, a 39-year-old American, and Salisbury lost in the tournament was 2020, falling in the semifinals. They were in early trouble Friday before recovering to prevent the 43-year-old Bopanna from becoming the oldest Grand Slam men's doubles champion.

Ram and Salisbury, who also won the 2020 Australian Open together, were just 20-16 for the season before reeling off six straight wins at the U.S. Open.

“I think it’s no secret that they’ve really struggled this year. I don’t think they’ve won more than back-to-back matches or two or three matches in a row, maybe only a few times,” Ebden said. “They have been really struggling, actually, taking a lot of losses for six, seven, eight months.”

“It’s the nature of the season,” he added. “If you stick together, you keep playing well, keep pushing, you build those partnerships, you give yourself a chance.”
