Juneteenth is a widely celebrated holiday that commemorates the last slaves being freed in Galveston, Texas, on June 19, 1865 — more than two years after the Emancipation Proclamation.

As with most holidays, food is an integral part of the celebration. Red drinks and foods like strawberries and watermelon are traditional, as they represent strength and perseverance in bondage. Barbecued meats and soul food round out the offerings of this shared meal gathering.

I am not impeccable in my eating. There are times I have been — eating squeaky clean and carefully monitoring exactly what and how much of what ingredient went in my system. That is how I know what seems to work best for my system — which things make me feel worse and what I can indulge in.

I understand that even talking about these options carries a great deal of privilege. One can’t make these discretionary choices in this country without having access to wealth, and in our case, help. There are many days when I am simply unable to do much of anything greater than wash a piece of fruit for consumption. And yet,
