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 Tulsa, OK.
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

Oil and gas prices continued their decline this week with regular gas hitting $3.93 per gallon on Thursday, according to AAA. Crude is trading at roughly $91 per barrel. Gas prices have fallen every day for the last nine weeks and crude oil has fallen by 30% in roughly that same period.
Prices could decline further if Iran agrees to the restoration of a 2015 nuclear deal. The deal would, among other things, lift sanctions against Iran's energy sector, infusing the global oil market with 1 million more barrels of crude a day.
Stacker compiled statistics on gas prices in Tulsa, OK metro area using data from AAA. Gas prices are current as of Aug. 19, 2022. State gas tax data is from World Population Review. Connecticut and New York have temporarily suspended gas taxes to help consumers while the cost of gas has increased.

TULSA, OK — An Oklahoma news anchor is sharing her experience after she suffered the beginnings of a stroke during a live Saturday morning broadcast.
Julie Chin, anchor and reporter with NBC affiliate KJRH of Tulsa, was delivering a live report on the rescheduled launch of NASA's Artemis I when she suddenly appeared to struggle with her words.
"I’m sorry. Something is going on with me this morning and I apologize to everybody," Chin said before turning the broadcast over to meteorologist Anne Brown.
"Julie, we love you so much. We have those days," Brown said in support.
But it wasn't just one of "those days." A day later, Chin took to Facebook to update her viewers. She said her doctors believe she experienced the beginning of a stroke during her broadcast.
"The past few days are still a little bit of a mystery," Chin wrote. "The episode seemed to have come out of nowhere."
Chin continued, saying she felt great before the show; however, over the course of the broadcast, Chin partially lost vision in one eye, her hand and arm went numb and she could no longer speak the words on the teleprompter.
"If you were watching Saturday morning, you know how desperately I tried to steer the show forward, but the words just wouldn’t come," Chin wrote.
Chin's coworkers called 911, and she was taken to the hospital for testing.
"I’m glad to share that my tests have all come back great," Chin wrote. "There are still lots of questions and lots to follow up on, but the bottom line is I should be just fine."
A stroke happens when blood flow to an area of the brain is blocked or when a blood vessel in the brain bursts, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death for women in the United States, While a stroke can happen at any age, 1 in 5 women between the ages of 55 and 75 will have a stroke in their lifetime.
Women are also at greater risk of stroke than men, according to the CDC. Higher blood pressure, pregnancy, menopause, birth control medications and higher rates of depression all contribute to a woman's increased risk of stroke.
According to the American Stroke Association, use the letters in "FAST" to spot symptoms of a stroke.
Other stroke symptoms include confusion, trouble seeing in one or both eyes, trouble walking and severe headache.

TULSA, OK – The Tulsa Drillers failed to hold a four-run lead on Saturday night as the Northwest Arkansas Naturals rallied to defeat Tulsa 8-6 at ONEOK Field. Ryan Ward and Lael Lockhart helped give the Drillers the early lead, as Ward drove in the first three runs, and Lockhart held the Naturals to just one run on three hits through the first five innings.
Ward’s damage came early. The Drillers first two batters in the bottom of the first inning reached on a single and an error. Ward then singled to left to score Leonel Valera to and put Tulsa up 1-0.
In the second inning, two singles and a walk loaded the bases for Tulsa, and Ward again delivered. With a 2-0 count, he singled to left, plating Abiatal Avelino and Valera to give the Drillers a three-run lead.
Lockhart commanded the first two innings as he retired the first eight batters he faced before giving up the first hit and run for the Naturals in the third inning.
Angelo Castellano tripled with two outs, and Tucker Bradley plated him with a single to make the score 3-1.
Ryan January expanded the Drillers lead in the fifth. With two outs, January roped a single to right center field, scoring Taylor and Ward to give Tulsa a 5-1 lead.
Lockhart was still in command as he entered the sixth inning, having struck out six batters to that point. With one out, a walk and a single prompted Manager Scott Hennessey to make a change and bring in Jordan Leasure from the bullpen. The Naturals earned their second run on Luca Tresh’s double to center. John Rave then grounded out to score a second run, and Seuly Matias doubled to left to score another and bring the score to 5-4.
Northwest Arkansas tied the game in the seventh inning on Morgan McCullough's lead-off solo homer.
Tulsa reliever Jose Hernandez kept the game tied as he entered with two outs in the seventh and recorded the next four outs.
The Naturals broke the tie in the top of the ninth on a two-out, three-run homer by Tyler Gentry off Tulsa reliever Nick Robertson.
Trailing 8-5, Tulsa made some noise in the bottom of the ninth, scoring one run on Brandon Lewis' RBI single. Following the single, the Drillers had the bases-loaded with two outs, but Naturals’ reliever Kasey Kalich retired January on strikes to end the game.

A successful local artist accused of predatory sexual behavior is seeing backlash in the arts community.
Scott Taylor, who opened Scott Taylor Gallery on Cherry Street in Dec. 2021 and who describes himself as a contemporary pop artist, has been accused by multiple people online of a variety of offenses, including pressuring younger female artists who sought his approval into sex.
Though posters describe ongoing social media complaints about Taylor in which he is not necessarily identified, the present conflict has grown to the point where he’s been named and is seeing a loss of support.
On Aug. 11, Kylie Wells, a local DJ, posted a statement to Facebook with thoughts about artists in Tulsa who invite women to their studios for the purpose of pressuring them into sex. “It’s literally a handful of them I see in constant rotation,” wrote Wells.
The post doesn’t specifically name Taylor, but Leslie Briggs, attorney for Wells, said it provoked reactions.
“She touched, I think on a live wire in the community, particularly the kind of much smaller local arts community here in Tulsa about an individual, about Mr. Taylor apparently. Everyone who reached out to her had stories about this same individual, despite the fact that her post didn’t name him,” said Briggs.
The post to date has 3 shares and 125 comments, with posters mentioning the “billboard guy.” Taylor is known for creating custom, colorful billboards in Tulsa.
On Aug. 16, Taylor’s stepdaughter, Madelyn Taylor, shared on Twitter a cropped photo of an undated document saying alleged claims of sexual abuse against Scott Taylor had been substantiated, with a comment attributed to Oklahoma Department of Human Services suggesting that "Ms. Taylor continue to protect the children" by not allowing them unsupervised visits with their father.
In a written statement provided through attorney Keith Flinn to Public Radio Tulsa, Scott Taylor said the document “that is being spread by my stepdaughter relates to a contentious divorce and it’s release is done so as part of an ongoing custody battle.”
As word has continued to spread, organizations are severing ties with Taylor. Living Arts, a consortium of artists, posted a statement to Facebook saying it’s putting “distance” between Taylor and the collective.
Local publications are also removing content about Taylor. An article on tulsapeople.com with the headline “High tide: Scott Taylor is riding a wave of successes lately” has been taken down. TulsaKids Magazine also confirmed to Public Radio Tulsa that it removed online content featuring Taylor.
In his statement, Taylor said the allegations against him are false and he and his family are being harassed.
“There’s never been any filings against me ever. Now, I’m being forced to take it to the courts to clear my name. I just want the truth and justice,” wrote Taylor.
When asked when and how Taylor will pursue litigation, Taylor responded that his legal team is doing extensive work to evaluate the damage.
Briggs said she looks forward to learning more.
“If Scott believes he has some kind of claim against these women for telling their truths, I’ll be curious to see what that claim is,” said Briggs.
This article was updated to include a response from Taylor about his plans to clear his name in court as he says.
