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 Wichita, KS, 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 Wichita, KS

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 Wichita, KS.

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:

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.

Wichita's first 'rage room' is fun that comes with major mental health benefits, expert says

WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - If you've ever felt the urge to smash a refrigerator or throw some plates on the ground, hopefully you haven't. But now, you can in a safe environment specifically designed for destruction, and experts say it comes with major mental health benefits.

Tyler Koch and Jayden Martinez are Wichita's newest and probably most destructive entrepreneurs.

"It usually takes a while for things to come to the midwest. So seeing it online, I figured no one else is doing it, and what's a better time to do it than now," said Koch.

He's talking about ICT Rage Room, the first of its kind in Wichita.

The idea is simple. If you want to smash a TV or break some glass, the rage room gives you a safe place to do it. Just suit up, put on your protective gear, and go crazy.

"We encourage them to yell and get loud and get lost in the music. And you'll see them take 5 to 10 swings on an item and just get it out. And you just see smiles afterwards," said Koch.

"When I found out about them coming here to Wichita, I got really excited. One for personal reasons, because it just sounds exciting to check out, and two just the therapeutic implications of having such a thing," said mental health expert Marissa Ingle.

Ingle is a therapist with the Mental Health Association. She says most people think of anger as a bad emotion, but having a safe place to let yourself be angry is one of the most important parts of healing.

"With the rage rooms, you know, having a safe outlet to release that anger to show humans that they can control their rage, their anger, their aggression... It's just gonna be good. It's gonna be really good," said Ingle.

So whether you go because you've always wanted to smash a cabinet with a sledgehammer, or you're going through a tough time and need the outlet, Koch and Martinez say they hope to provide it for years to come.

"Stress, anger management, mental health all affects us in different ways. And if this is a way that we can help, and it's cost-effective, then we're going to do it."

Koch is also asking for donations of anything that you would otherwise need to throw away. Things like old glassware/empty bottles, broken TVs/electronics, or broken pieces of furniture. He says they'll even pick it up for you if necessary. To schedule a time, call 316-469-6342, or you can drop it off at 2952 N Arkansas Ave, Wichita, KS 67204.

First Kansas Honor Flight trip of the year returns to Wichita

WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - The Kansas Honor Flight’s first trip of 2022 is complete after a welcome home ceremony Wednesday afternoon at the Red Roof Inn in Wichita.

Over 90 veterans who served in World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam War went on the three-day trip to Washington D.C. to visit a series of war memorials. Donald Fanning, one of the many on the trip, said his recent efforts have been leading up to this moment.

“I was in awe to see so many people,” Fanning said. “I didn't think there would be that many. I figured just, you know, basic family and stuff. But oh, the room was packed.”

Fanning is an Army veteran from Eureka. He is currently collecting aluminum cans to raise money for the organization.

“If I could get more people, more veterans involved in this, the better,” he said. “I don't care if you're Desert Storm, Desert Shield…”

“Bring it. Let's get you on this trip.”

Since December, Fanning has donated 2,700 pounds of aluminum cans, raising over $1,600. He’s also brought in $700 in monetary donations.

“When you go on these flights, that's something you'll probably never see again,” he said.

His welcome home Wednesday was a long time coming, as it was for so many others who never received one after returning from active duty. But, he’s not the only one with something to celebrate.

This year is the Kansas Honor Flight's tenth anniversary. The organization has given over 3,000 veterans the chance to take off from Wichita for these trips.

"Most 'Nam vets will never talk about it in public, but together like this, we're all brothers, and it's not a problem to talk about any of it,” Fanning said.

For grandson and grandfather Remington Roe and Leonard Nelson, the celebration was just reuniting.

"Very emotional,” Roe said. “I missed seeing him even after his three days. I missed him, and I was excited."

“Awesome,” Nelson said when asked how his grandson’s reaction made him feel. "That's my boy."

The Kansas Honor Flight is taking three more trips this year. Anyone interested in participating, donating or volunteering can email [email protected].

Get ready Wichita! NHL hockey coming to Intrust Bank Arena in September! Arizona Coyotes taking on the St. Louis Blues in the @G1SportsEnt Frozen Face Off!Full story tonight on @KWCH12 pic.twitter.com/8h1QC2mGWP

— Tejay Cleland (@KWCHTejay) April 18, 2022

Wichita playing host to the NHL has been a long time coming. In security the game this year, G1 Sports and Entertainment is excited for what this could mean for the future of the Wichita sports scene.

“We’re kind of that city that is just big enough to host these events but not big enough where we’re on the radar. So, we really have to go out there and sell ourselves,” said Tien Huynh with G1 Sports and Entertainment. “But I keep telling people, ‘we’re like a sleeping giant.’”

Arizona Coyotes General Manager Bill Armstrong said Wichita is a great sports city and he looks forward to the Coyotes plain in front of a full house at INTRUST Bank Arena.

Brian Hargrove with G1 Sports and Entertainment said the company pushed extra hard to bring the Blues closer to their Kansas fanbase.

“I have actually been in discussions with the St. Louis Blues for close to a year now about doing a preseason game here in Wichita,” Hargrove said. “They put me in touch with the Coyotes, who they knew were looking for a neutral site. So, I said, ‘we’re interested in that, but we want you to be a part of the game as well.”

While not at the NHL level, professional hockey has been in Wichita for three decades with the Wichita Thunder, currently in the ECHL. The Thunder are excited for their fans to get to watch some of the world’s best players in their city.

“Very excited. It’s always been a dream come true to have the NHL come to my city,” said Wichita Thunder PA Announcer Austin Crutcher. “The fans are absolutely tremendous. They come out and support their team every night, regardless of what day it is, and it’s really going to show whenever we get an NHL team here.”

The Blues will take on the Coyotes in a preseason game. The "Frozen Face Off" will be the first time the NHL has made an appearance in Wichita.

During a press conference Monday, G1 Sports & Entertainment announced that Intrust Bank Arena will host a preseason NHL game between the St. Louis Blues and Arizona Coyotes on Sept. 24.

WICHITA, Kan. — Wichita, Kansas, has a new organization working to bring major sporting events to the city.

It starts with a preseason National Hockey League game at Intrust Bank Arena in September, but the promoters behind the event say more is to come.

"I want to ... create what I call a sports movement," said Tien Huynh, founder of G1 Sports & Entertainment.

G1 Sports & Entertainment, a division of investment firm G1 Group, announced Monday that the St. Louis Blues and Arizona Coyotes will play a preseason game at 7 p.m. Sept. 24 at the downtown arena. The "Frozen Face Off" will be the first time the NHL has made an appearance in Wichita. Tickets for the game go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at selectaseat.com.

Getting to this point, though, has been a culmination of the right players coming together at the right time.

Huynh and two friends, Chanh Nguyen and Jason Bayless, have the G1 Group, which has an investment portfolio made up of primarily automotive and real estate businesses, including Elite Auto Sales in Wichita; Z Auto in Andover, Kansas; and Kia dealerships in Dodge City and Manhattan, Kansas.

"We're called G1 because we're all first-generation guys," Huynh said. "We all grew up in, like, trailer parks and government housing and welfare and all that stuff, and so we're all blessed and grateful for the situation that we're in today."

Huynh was one of the co-founders of the AfterShocks, the Wichita State alumni team, in its inaugural year in 2019 in The Basketball Tournament, a 64-team, open-to-anyone, cash-prize tournament.

From there, Huynh said he wanted to continue to explore the world of sports events, which he says can help boost Wichita's profile on the national stage and even retain its young residents — including his young children and future grandchildren.

"What can we do to help our our community and its quality of life?" he asked. "I have a 6-, 4- and a 2-year-old, and we obviously don't have mountains, we don't have beaches, and Wichita has still always been that little city that could, that little engine that could."

Meanwhile, Brian Hargrove had been working solo trying to pull together a deal with the NHL.

Hargrove said he was having conversations with the St. Louis Blues about doing a preseason game in Wichita in 2021, but realized he needed help.

"Once we got down to the nuts and bolts and I saw everything that went into putting on an event of that magnitude, as far as guarantees go and just all the expenses with the arena and the teams and the travel and so forth, that's when I was like, 'I don't think I can do this on my own,' at least not right now," he said.

That's where the two joined forces.
