Do something healthy and delicious this holiday season: put Mediterranean food on your holiday table! Hear me out…
For nearly 50 years, Bitar’s has been providing Philadelphians healthy diet options, even before the Mediterranean diet was touted as health food and the key to living a long life. The leading scientific benefit of this diet is that it promotes cardio health. Studies demonstrate repeatedly that populations following this eating pattern suffer from lower rates of heart disease, hypertension, and more.
Why not get started on your New Year’s resolution to eat healthier by opting for scrumptious, Mediterranean food from Bitar’s for the holidays? Add nutritious, heart healthy and plant-based items to your holiday menu for a great jump start to 2022.
Over the years, the modest little family-run Bitar’s outpost at the corner of 10th & Federal in South Philly has spawned a dozen successful food businesses, some in partnership with the most prominent food services, purveyors, and bakeries.
From this background, Bitar’s has developed a busy catering business ranging from small parties and business functions to supplying other major caterers with Middle Eastern specialties like falafel, stuffed grape leaves, and fresh hummus. These are all smart choices for entertaining and fantastic additions for holiday parties or even your family holiday meal. Bitar’s will create a customized menu that works for you.
