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.

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 New York City, NY, 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.

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 New York City, NY.

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.

Bill Cosby sued for sexual battery under new New York lookback law, following similar lawsuit from 5 accusers

CNN —

A woman who says she was sexually assaulted by sitcom star and comedian Bill Cosby is suing him for sexual battery after five other women sued him in early December, according to a lawsuit filed last Friday.

The suit, filed in New York’s Supreme Court, alleges plaintiff Stacey Pinkerton was sexually assaulted by Cosby in 1986 when she was 21 years old.

According to the lawsuit, Cosby used his power and influence to “groom and sexually assault” Pinkerton, who was pursuing a career in modeling and working as a flight attendant at the time. The complaint alleges that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her when they had dinner under pretenses about advancing her career in the media industry.

In another instance months later, Cosby invited Pinkerton to a show at the Chicago Theatre and forcefully kissed and touched her without consent, the suit says.

Cosby “engaged in the same or similar pattern of conduct” with his other victims, the suit alleges, by expressing interest in advancing their careers as a means to drug and sexually assault them.

“The Cosby Show” star was sentenced to 3 to 10 years in prison in 2018 for charges involving drugging and sexually assaulting another woman, but was released in 2021 after Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court overturned his sexual assault conviction.

Pinkerton is also suing NBC, Kaufman Astoria Studios, and Carsey-Werner Company – the companies that managed the Cosby Show – for negligence and negligent hiring, supervision and retention.

NBC, Carsey-Werner and Kaufman Astoria did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Pinkerton has accused Cosby of sexual assault publicly in the past, but her lawsuit comes after a New York law was passed that gives adult survivors of sexual assault one year to file lawsuits against their perpetrators even if the statute of limitations on their claims has expired.

Five women filed a lawsuit against Cosby earlier in December under the New York Adult Survivors Act.

“She has brought this lawsuit to hold him accountable and stand up for herself and others, and the law in New York now allows her and other adults to bring this action against the offenders and those that allowed it to happen,” Pinkerton’s lawyer, Jeff Anderson, said in a phone call with CNN.

In a statement to CNN, the press representative for Cosby denied all accusations in the lawsuit.

“We believe that the courts, as well as the court of public opinion, will follow the rules of law and relieve Mr. Cosby of these alleged accusations. Mr. Cosby continues to vehemently deny all allegations waged against him and looks forward to defending himself in court,” Andrew Wyatt wrote.

Cosby’s lawyer, Jennifer Bonjean, told CNN on the phone that New York’s new law is “going down a dangerous path.”

“We’re not totally surprised that when the New York state legislature decided to abolish the statute of limitations, it was going to lead to a number of stale allegations that are being revived,” Bonjean told CNN. “Our position is that the statute is unconstitutional, because it revives claims that have been barred by the statute of limitation for a long time, and that it sets a very dangerous precedent, legally speaking, and not just in the context of old assaults.”

Jets coach Robert Saleh defends embattled OC Mike LaFleur

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Even though the New York Jets' playoff hopes were undermined, in large part, by a struggling offense, coach Robert Saleh insisted Monday he won't let outside noise influence his decision on the future of offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur.

Saleh said he still has full confidence in LaFleur even though the Jets have scored only four touchdowns during their current five-game losing streak. The Jets (7-9) were eliminated from playoff contention Sunday with a 23-6 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, extending their futility streak to eight straight quarters without a touchdown.

Preferring to look at the big picture instead of recent results, Saleh said the Jets are in the second year of "a commitment to go young everywhere -- coaches, players, staff, everybody. It's so important to take a deep breath ... and make sure we're telling ourselves the truth rather than allowing narrative and panic to set in."

Last season, the Jets had a rookie coach in Saleh, a rookie coordinator in LaFleur and a rookie quarterback in Zach Wilson, the No. 2 overall pick. The plan was to have them grow together, but there hasn't been much improvement.

Under LaFleur, 36, the Jets were 28th in scoring last season and they're 27th this year, as they've dealt with Wilson's acute growing pains and injuries to rookie running back Breece Hall and the offensive line.

Saleh is close friends with LaFleur's older brother, Green Bay Packers coach Matt LaFleur, and has known Mike LaFleur since he was a teenager. When Saleh landed the Jets' job in 2021, his first significant hire was Mike, also a former 49ers assistant.

"I've been in (Mike) LaFleur's shoes," said Saleh, recalling how he was on the hot seat as the San Francisco 49ers' defensive coordinator after the 2018 season. "It would've been very easy for Kyle (Shanahan) to fire me, very easy to say, 'You know what? We went 4-12, you're the scapegoat, get the heck out of the building.'

"But to his credit, we sat down ... he committed to me, and the rest is history."

The 49ers won the NFC championship in 2019, elevating Saleh's profile as a head-coaching candidate. He said it takes discipline to make objective evaluations and "not come away with knee-jerk reactions that would derail what could be a pretty damn good football coach -- or a good player, for that matter. That's where Zach comes into play."

"I've been in (Mike) LaFleur's shoes. It would've been very easy for Kyle (Shanahan) to fire me, very easy to say, 'You know what? We went 4-12, you're the scapegoat, get the heck out of the building.' But to his credit, we sat down ... he committed to me, and the rest is history." Jets coach Robert Saleh

LaFleur and Wilson, replaced in the lineup by Mike White, have been the lightning rods during the team's late-season collapse.

With regard to LaFleur, Saleh acknowledged the results haven't been good enough, but he believes there has been some growth on offense, mainly by individual players. On Sunday, rookie wide receiver Garrett Wilson became the first Jets player since 2015 to reach 1,000 receiving yards in a season.

"There were stretches where we had one of the more prolific offenses in the league for a couple of games in a row, here and there," center Connor McGovern said. "It's just a consistency thing. It's not just on LaFleur, it's not just on the players. It's the entire New York Jets not being consistent."

Commenting on Wilson's future, which appears uncertain after two benchings, Saleh reiterated there's no desire to move on from him. While he wouldn't commit to Wilson as the 2023 starter, he said it's premature to cut bait after only two seasons. He doesn't want to repeat past mistakes by the organization, noting there are "so many" former Jets enjoying success.

One of them, Seattle's Geno Smith, beat them Sunday.

"If there's a franchise that should recognize, 'Maybe we should give these young men a little bit of time,' it's this organization," Saleh said.

Jets left fans with empty feeling Mets’ faithful can relate to

It’s been damn near three months now, and if you happen to run into a Mets fan at the right hour in a saloon, the laments will flow like the beer taps on the other side of the mahogany. Yes, Steve Cohen’s spending spree (even with the Coup d’Correa still unfinished) has been a helpful salve. But that only goes so far.Funny thing, too:If you’d talked to those same Mets ...

It’s been damn near three months now, and if you happen to run into a Mets fan at the right hour in a saloon, the laments will flow like the beer taps on the other side of the mahogany. Yes, Steve Cohen’s spending spree (even with the Coup d’Correa still unfinished) has been a helpful salve. But that only goes so far.

Funny thing, too:

If you’d talked to those same Mets fans back on Dec. 19, 2021, the day the Mets hired Buck Showalter, and asked them the following: “You’ve been absent the playoffs the last five years and haven’t even truly come within shouting distance of the playoffs; what would you say if you made the playoffs next year in Year 1 of BuckBall?”

This is what most of them would have said:

“Where do I sign up?”

Ah, but things happen. Things change. The Mets came charging out of the gate, seized first place in the NL East and kept it themselves for 4 ½ months. They endured extended visits to the shelf by their co-aces, Jacob deGrom and Max Scherzer, and kept winning anyway, and didn’t finish until they’d piled up 101 wins and tied for first in the division.

They moved the goal posts, is what they did.

And so by the second weekend in October, it was hard to remember any one of those 101 wins, difficult to enjoy any of the highlights accrued across six mostly prosperous months. Year 1 of BuckBall would not be an innocent climb but a wicked tease, all the good that came before shrouded by three awful games in Atlanta against the Braves and two worse games at home against the Padres a week later.

“No regrets,” GM Billy Eppler said a few days after that. “We gave this everything we had, every member of the organization.”

That may be true. Doesn’t make Mets fans feel better at last call.

Which brings us to the Jets.

Jets fans have had two full days to absorb the latest piece of a five-part collapse, the Jets ringing in the New Year with a familiar old storyline. And, as a fair proportion of Mets fans also happen to be Jets fans … well, yes, you can find them filling their glasses with a frosty pint of regret right about now, if they haven’t chosen to go Dry January (though that seems a poor choice by any Mets/Jets fan, if you think about it).

If you’d talked to those same Jets fans back in August, in the middle of training camp after years of utter futility, and asked them the following: “You’ve been absent the playoffs the last 11 years and haven’t even sniffed them in seven; what would you say if you won seven games this year and were ‘in the hunt’ all through December?”

This is what most of them would have said:

“Where do I sign up?”

Ah, but things happen. Things change. The Jets pulled out a miracle win in Cleveland in Week 2. They won at Pittsburgh, a longtime haunted city for them, in Week 4. They were 6-3. They were 7-4. There was actually a mathematical path for them to steal the AFC East if they kept winning. Whatever modest ambitions ruled the day before Week 1, they were sure different by Week 11.

They moved the goal posts, is what they did.

And so now, it is all but futile to draw a happy face on this season, even if they go and win a what-the-hell game in Miami this week. The harsh reality of an 0-5 plunge all but camouflages all the wonderful surprises that helped the Jets grow that 7-4 record.

“We didn’t finish the season the way we wanted to,” linebacker C.J. Mosley said, “but we’re fortunate enough to be healthy enough to be playing one more game this season with our teammates, with our coaches. We just have to enjoy that moment as much as we can.”

In a sobering time around the NFL community, that is a perfectly reasonable take. But it doesn’t minimize the sting of the last five weeks, even if you started the season as a Jets fan with perfectly reasonable aspirations. But things happen. Things change. That emptiness you’re feeling as a Jets fan? You’ve earned it.

Same as the Mets fans did.

Examining the Jets passing game struggles: A problem larger than the quarterback

On Sunday, the New York Jets struggled to pass the ball against the Seattle Seahawks. This is reflected in the overall stat line of quarterback Mike White, who had 23 completions on 46 attempts for 240 yards (5.2 yards per attempt) with 0 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. By no stretch would one argue that Mike White played well, which is further supported by his QBR of 12.2 as graded by ESPN.However, the struggles of the passin...

On Sunday, the New York Jets struggled to pass the ball against the Seattle Seahawks. This is reflected in the overall stat line of quarterback Mike White, who had 23 completions on 46 attempts for 240 yards (5.2 yards per attempt) with 0 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. By no stretch would one argue that Mike White played well, which is further supported by his QBR of 12.2 as graded by ESPN.

However, the struggles of the passing game was not solely due to Mike White. A passing offense requires multiple components, QB, offensive line, and pass catching play in order to succeed. In the instance of the version of the New York Jets that played on Sunday, they seem to have had none of those components operating at a competent level.

As it relates to the pass targets, they failed to separate.

Just putting tomorrow's stat post together and I absolutely agree that Mike White was really bad, but man he got no help whatsoever. Below is the average separation for Jets receivers, WR's got nothing and had 5 drops as well (Season high) #TakeFlight pic.twitter.com/gF3Ui3XKBS

— David Wyatt-Hupton (@DWyattHupton) January 2, 2023

As it relates to the offensive line, they failed to block.

The #Jets O-Line allowed 3 sacks, 19 pressures and 5 QB hits vs. the Seahawks, per TruMedia.At this point, the only O-Lineman that started today I'm fully confident will be back next year is Laken Tomlinson.Joe Douglas has a lot of work to do on the O-Line.

— Zack Rosenblatt (@ZackBlatt) January 2, 2023

And as it relates to the quarterback, well, his stat line speaks for itself... as does his own assessment of his play.

"There's a standard that those guys deserve and I did not play to that standard today."- Mike White pic.twitter.com/q5OPPPoRR9

— Jets Videos (@snyjets) January 2, 2023

As the above figures suggest, the Jets passing game simply fired on no cylinders and, in line with that, they struggled. However, despite this seeming failure across the board, a great deal of criticism has landed squarely on Mike White and offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur for Sunday’s loss.

But what do you think? Based on the above figures and the eye test of Sunday, who do you think is most to blame for the general ineptitude of the Jets passing game in their most recent loss?

Immanuel Quickley draws comparison to ex-Knick Jamal Crawford

Before making his fourth straight start Monday in place of an injured teammate, Immanuel Quickley drew a lofty comparison from Suns coach Monty Williams.“Quickley’s like Jamal Crawford in so many ways, can just get it going,” Williams said.Then Quickley went out and put together his latest quality performance to help the Knicks to their second straight win.While Quickley still has a long way to go to come close to Crawford — the 20-year NBA guard, former Knick and ultimate sixth man — the Kn...

Before making his fourth straight start Monday in place of an injured teammate, Immanuel Quickley drew a lofty comparison from Suns coach Monty Williams.

“Quickley’s like Jamal Crawford in so many ways, can just get it going,” Williams said.

Then Quickley went out and put together his latest quality performance to help the Knicks to their second straight win.

While Quickley still has a long way to go to come close to Crawford — the 20-year NBA guard, former Knick and ultimate sixth man — the Knicks will take the version they have gotten of late as the third-year combo guard has stepped into the lineup for Jalen Brunson and then RJ Barrett.

After starting at point guard for three games, Quickley drew into the lineup for Barrett on Monday — when he chipped in 15 points, five rebounds and three assists — as he continued to show off his versatility.

“I think that’s what I like about our perimeter guys, they’re versatile and they can play multiple positions,” coach Tom Thibodeau said. “Quick can play with the starters, he can play with the bench. He can play the point, he can play the 2.

“I don’t know what he is, he’s just a good basketball player.”

Over his last eight games, which include five starts, Quickley is averaging 19.9 points on 40.9 percent shooting from beyond the arc, 4.9 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 0.9 steals in 33.8 minutes. That stretch included a career-high 51 minutes against the Mavericks, when he dished out a career-high 15 assists, and a career-high 36 points against the Spurs.

Though those career-highs all came in losses, he has continued to have an impact on the last two wins.

“We’ve got guys that can make shots,” Quickley said before the Knicks had Tuesday off ahead of Wednesday’s rematch with the Spurs at the Garden. “Julius [Randle] demands double-teams. Jalen demands double-teams. So when they get in the paint, create for others, we get open shots. [Mitchell Robinson] on the glass. So it was a total team effort. The bench came in and gave us a great spark, so it was everybody.”

Quickley is expected to earn a fifth straight start on Wednesday with Barrett being ruled out for a fourth straight game because of a lacerated finger.

After taking Brunson’s spot in the starting lineup for three games, Quickley played alongside him on Monday to form a tandem that has had success this season. The two guards have been on the floor together for a total of 355 minutes this season, during which the Knicks have a net rating of 9.6 — meaning they are outscoring their opponents by 9.6 points per 100 possessions. That mark registers as the seventh best net rating for any Knicks duo that has played at least 200 minutes together this season.

“Honestly, it felt kind of normal, like we had been doing it for a while,” Quickley said. “He can play with or without the ball, which makes him very easy to play with. Unselfish, high-character guy, as well, so it makes it easy to play with somebody like that.”

Quickley, who has reportedly drawn trade interest from other teams this season, has also been effective with other key Knicks while bouncing between the first and second units. He and Quentin Grimes have a 15.6 net rating in 325 minutes while he and Mitchell Robinson have a 12.7 net rating in 311 minutes.

“Since I’ve been here, Quick’s been great,” Brunson said. “What he did when I was out is no surprise. He can do that while I’m in the lineup as well. He’s special.”
