Recently I visited my local vegetarian and vegan food wholesalers, and they have some super good products, and so I thought I would share what I bought while on my shopping trip! I love vegetarian food and this shop just has so many interesting and delicious foods on offer… As a vegetarian, it can be hard finding cheap and easy-to-cook student meals, and so I like to stock up on ethical products before returning to University. I got this idea, because I was seeing lots of haul posts around the blogosphere, and I wanted to contribute one which was perhaps a bit different ๐Ÿ™‚

I bought lots of tins of food as they will last me a long time through the University term- and who doesn’t want warm, wholesome food during the winter? All the food came in lovely brown bags, environmentally-friendly and really aesthetic for pictures ๐Ÿ™‚

Look how delicious this chilli looks! Packed full of organic beans and ingredients, this is a cheap and easy student meal which can be cooked in under five minutes. It’s vegetarian (and vegan!), as well as containing organically produced vegetables, which contributes to protecting the environment and wildlife. It looks delicious, and I can’t wait to make it one cold winter’s evening, after coming in from a long day of lectures!

Another tin full of vegetarian and vegan goodness ๐Ÿ™‚ This looks absolutely delicious… If I get a cold this term, I’m definitely going to cook myself a big pot of this spicy tagine and build up my immune system. Anyone who said vegetarian food is boring and tasteless was definitely wrong when it comes to this spicy, Moroccan-style meal.

I promise this is the last tin I bought ๐Ÿ˜‰ But how cute is this?! Anyone who is vegetarian or vegan will know the struggle of finding much-loved comfort food that they can eat. But this is a meal which is suitable for vegans, and is fantastic for lunch or dinner on a cold winter’s night. I can’t wait to try this one, as I’ve not had sausages and beans for so long, and it’s such a good comfort food!

This isn’t food, but these soaps are just so lovely, and they smell so good! Produced and created ethically, and using all natural ingredients, these Suma soaps are fantastic for delicate skin, and they manage to incorporate beautifully smelling fragrances with sensitive and natural ingredients. The two soaps are lavender, and rose and geranium, and I can’t wait to use them at University.

Because they smell so nice, they’re also fantastic for popping in clothes drawers, giving your clothes a soft and delicate fragrance. The brand Suma is a fantastic, ethical and natural company, and also makes vegetarian and vegan foods.

I also bought some lovely tortilla chips, flavoured with paprika, which were gluten-free, dairy-free… and free of pretty much anything. But they were really tasty, and I ate them as I walked home with my many tins. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of the packet, but I would really recommend these tasty tortilla chips!

I can’t wait to get into these meals when I get back to University and cook them throughout the term- they should ward off any colds!

Are you vegetarian or vegan? Do you like posting hauls when you go for shopping trips? What’s your favourite warm winter meal?

Happy reading!
