Turkey, cheese logs, eggnog and ham – these are the foods of the season.

But they’re foods that Tim Sebile, who is a vegan, can’t eat. Not in the traditional sense, anyway.

Sebile, who works at the Basic Foods store, hasn’t eaten meat or any other animal product for six years. It’s a way of living he said he’s proud to be a part of, even though there aren’t many vegetarians or vegans in the area.

Coming up with an alternative recipe isn’t hard, Sebile said, and if you’re a vegan or vegetarian for animal rights reasons, there shouldn’t be any temptation to cheat.

“You can have the same things other people eat, just made with different things,” he said. “Most people think if you’re a vegetarian, it doesn’t taste good, but that’s not true.”

Keep reading. Kudos to the Beaumont Enterprise for publishing this story.
