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 San Francisco, CA.
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

California has endured sweltering temperatures for seven brutal days. On Monday, temperatures in the Bay Area reached levels not seen in modern history, with an all-time high of 117 degrees in Fairfield. San Jose hit an all-time high of 109 on Tuesday. Even San Francisco — normally cooled by the coastal marine layer — surpassed 90 degrees downtown.
Fortunately, the end is near, meteorologists say. Temperatures will steadily drop beginning Friday and through the weekend with more cooling expected early next week. The high-pressure system currently parked over much of the western U.S. is weakening and moving away.
“I think the last hot day will be (today), then we’re going to be in a nice downward trend,” said Jan Null, a meteorologist with Golden Gate Weather Services and San Jose State University.
For the past week, a system of high atmospheric pressure has hovered above much of the West and trapped hot air over California — a situation often referred to as a heat dome.
Even the natural air conditioning that normally flows through the Bay Area — thanks to the cooling effect of the Pacific Ocean — can’t overcome the enormous size of this air mass and its hot temperatures.
“If you have an elephant sitting in the room and a person trying to push the elephant out of the way, that’s not going to do much — that’s like our little dinky marine layer,” said Brooke Bingaman, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service’s Bay Area office. “It can’t really push the elephant out of the way completely.”
Stronger forces are needed to budge the hard-to-move heat dome, or metaphorical elephant.
Larger sinusoidal patterns of atmospheric circulation normally push air around the globe. This includes the jet stream, strong winds in the upper atmosphere that blow from west to east over the U.S. But the wavy pattern can lock in position. And instead of moving away, a high-pressure system can sit in place for long periods of time, like the current heat dome, which has taken up California residence for a week.
“Anytime you have a weather pattern that sits over an area for an extended period of time, you’re going to get extreme weather,” Null said.
An excessive heat warning that the NWS issued a week ago was extended through Thursday until 8 p.m. and covers large swaths of the Bay Area and south, to the Santa Cruz Mountains.
It’s not until Friday that the high-pressure system will truly begin to weaken and become smaller in size — temperatures will then begin to cool.
“By the time we get to Sunday, we should be out of triple-digit heat for the entire Bay Area,” Bingaman said.
This weekend, temperatures will also dip in the Central Valley, though on a slightly delayed schedule, beginning on Saturday. By next week, temperatures should be close to normal.
“If everyone could just handle one more day, then they’ll start feeling more and more cooling each day as we go from Friday into early next week,” Bingaman said.

LOS ANGELES – The California High-Speed Rail Authority (Authority) has released the draft environmental document for the more than 30-mile segment between Palmdale and Burbank in Southern California.“The release of this draft environmental document underscores the momentum taking place with this transformational project,” said Southern California Regional Director LaDonna DiCamillo. “We have environmentally cleared 422 of the 500-mile Phase 1 system between the Bay Area and Los Angeles/Anaheim....
LOS ANGELES – The California High-Speed Rail Authority (Authority) has released the draft environmental document for the more than 30-mile segment between Palmdale and Burbank in Southern California.
“The release of this draft environmental document underscores the momentum taking place with this transformational project,” said Southern California Regional Director LaDonna DiCamillo. “We have environmentally cleared 422 of the 500-mile Phase 1 system between the Bay Area and Los Angeles/Anaheim. We look forward to hearing from residents and stakeholders during this public comment phase as we work to deliver a clean, fast and safe transportation network for all Californians.”
Click or tap image for a larger version.
The draft environmental document is available for California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) public review through November 1.
The project section is between 31 and 38 miles long, and will connect two key population centers in Los Angeles County, the Antelope Valley and the San Fernando Valley, by linking future multimodal transportation hubs in Palmdale and Burbank.
The draft environmental document addresses traffic, air quality, noise, vibration and aesthetics, and evaluates the impacts and benefits of six build alternatives:
The Preferred Alternative is SR14A Alternative, which would avoid crossing Una Lake and minimizes impacts to nearby wetlands.
Trains operating on the Preferred Alternative alignment would be fully underground through the community of Acton, the Angeles National Forest, and the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument. The SR14A Alternative is also underground where it crosses the Pacific Crest Trail, avoiding impacts to the trail. Through the northern portion of the San Fernando Valley, the SR14A Alternative is in a tunnel, emerges near the Hansen Dam Spreading Grounds and then follows the Metrolink/Union Pacific rail alignment almost entirely within the existing corridor to Burbank.
With the release of this Palmdale to Burbank Project Section Draft EIR/EIS, the Authority is on track to complete environmental clearance for the full Phase 1 California High-Speed Rail System from San Francisco to Los Angeles/Anaheim by the end of 2024.
In conjunction with the public review period for the Draft EIR/EIS, the Authority invites the public to participate in an online open house and an online public hearing. The open house meeting will provide the public an overview of the environmental document, opportunity for attendees to review and ask questions about the Draft EIR/EIS, and information on where to access the environmental document and how to participate in the public comment process. The public hearing will provide an opportunity to submit comments on the Draft EIR/EIS.
The Open House meeting will consist of two separate presentations in English and Spanish with simultaneous interpretation. The English presentation will have live Spanish interpretation and the Spanish presentation will have live English interpretation.
Comments received will be reviewed and responded to in the Final EIR/EIS. The Final EIR/EIS for the Palmdale to Burbank Project Section is anticipated to be issued in 2023 and presented to the Authority Board of Directors to consider certification and project approval under CEQA and NEPA.
Due to public health and safety concerns related to COVID-19, the meetings for the Draft EIR/EIS will be held online. Please check the Authority website (www.hsr.ca.gov) or call (800) 630-1039 for more information on additional opportunities for in-person meetings, if permissible by COVID-19 pandemic public health and safety directives.
The Authority is issuing this document as lead agency under CEQA, and also under NEPA pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) effective as of July 23, 2019. The MOU is between the State of California and the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) under a program commonly known as NEPA assignment (the MOU assigned FRA’s NEPA responsibilities for the project to the State of California).
There are several ways to submit a comment regarding the Draft EIR/EIS for the Palmdale to Burbank Project Section including:

LIVERMORE, Calif. (KRON) — Tuesday’s extreme weather is heating up to once again break records in some parts of the San Francisco Bay Area.KRON4 meteorologist Kyla Grogan said, “More ...
KRON4 meteorologist Kyla Grogan said, “More brutal heat grips the bay today with temps at noon already running hotter than they were this time yesterday. Livermore busted an all-time record by hitting 116 degrees yesterday. Today by all accounts could be as bad, or slightly worse.”
KRON4 meteorologist John Shrable agreed. “After record-shattering heat yesterday, today’s temperatures are likely to be even hotter for many areas,” he said.
The most scorching parts of the Bay Area will be found in Walnut Creek and Danville, with a high of 119 degrees Tuesday afternoon. Pleasanton and Vacaville will also be baking at 117 degrees. Down in the South Bay, Cupertino will simmer in 110-degree heat.
“The biggest story to me isn’t the numbers so much as the danger that they embody,” Grogan said. “This type of prolonged heat event means that more and more people will be at risk of heat-related illnesses yet again today.”
Shrable also warned that this extreme weather is dangerous for venturing outside.
“Highs inland will rise above 110 degrees, with any exposure to afternoon heat being potentially dangerous. Many bayside areas will see highs rising to 100 or above, with 70’s and 80’s all the way out to the coastline,” Shrable said.
The Bay Area’s wicked early September heat wave will continue into the work week. On Wednesday, areas that were between 95-115 will see a 10-degree cooldown.
“We should get a bit of a break with things running slightly cooler tomorrow as a system to our north rolls by us. But that relief is short lived as we heat up again to today’s levels on Thursday. The real break in the heat will come this weekend,” Grogan said.
Relief from this drawn-out heat wave is on Saturday’s horizon when temperatures are expected to cool down significantly.

Nation’s First High-Speed Rail Project Now Environmentally Cleared Between San Francisco and Northern Los Angeles County
SAN JOSE, Calif. – The California High-Speed Rail Authority (Authority) Board of Directors today certified the Final Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement (Final EIR/EIS) and approved the approximately 43-mile project for the San Francisco to San Jose section. This action completes the environmental clearance for high-speed rail in Northern California and extends environmental clearance to 420 miles of the project’s 500-mile alignment from San Francisco to Los Angeles/Anaheim.
“With environmental studies completed in Northern California, we are closer than ever to realizing a first in the nation, statewide high-speed rail system,” said Authority Chairman Tom Richards. “We look forward to working with all of our regional partners and stakeholders in developing modern, sustainable transportation infrastructure, completing our work in the Central Valley and connecting to the Bay Area as soon as possible.”
The approval of the San Francisco to San Jose high-speed rail project section and its environmental document represents a major milestone in advancing the entire statewide program by linking the San Francisco Bay Area and the Peninsula to San Jose, the Central Valley, and Los Angeles County in Southern California. Connecting these major economic regions with high-speed rail will change how people travel throughout the state and foster more equitable employment and housing opportunities.
The Board’s certification of the San Francisco to San Jose Final EIR/EIS and approval of its project section will move the project section closer to being “shovel ready” when funding for final design, pre-construction and construction becomes available.
In approving this project section, the Authority Board of Directors selected the Preferred Alternative (Alternative A). This alternative builds on the Caltrain electrification project and incorporates the infrastructure necessary to run high-speed rail service in the corridor. The approved Alternative A extends from the previously approved San Jose high-speed rail station and includes new high-speed rail stations in San Francisco and Millbrae; construction of a light maintenance facility on the east side of the Caltrain corridor in Brisbane; and improvements for safety and speed in the region.
The Final EIR/EIS can be found on the Authority’s website here: https://hsr.ca.gov/programs/environmental-planning/project-section-environmental-documents-tier-2/san-francisco-to-san-jose-project-section-draft-environmental-impact-report-environmental-impact-statement/
