这些跟食物有关的好玩的俚语,你都知道几个呢?小编今天就来带大家看看,赶紧背起来吧!

1. An apple a day keeps the doctor away!

一天一苹果,医生远离我!

Especially for children who do not like to eat their fruits, parents can tell them “An apple a day keeps the doctor away!” to convince them that they will not have to see any doctor if they eat their fruits.

尤其是对于不喜欢吃水果的孩子,家长可以告诉他们“一天一个苹果,医生远离你!”,让他们相信,如果他们吃了水果,就不必去看医生。

2. A hungry man is an angry man

饿汉易怒

People are only in their right mind and can make complex decisions if they are full and have their needs met.

人们只有吃饱了,并且需求得到满足,他们才能保持正确的头脑,并且做出复杂的决定。

3. Eat to live but do not live to eat!

吃饭是为了活着,但活着不是为了吃饭

Once someone is overweight, they should think about eating to live, but not living to eat.

4. Don’t put all your eggs in one basket!

不要把一切希望寄托在一件事上

这句谚语来源于这样一种观念:在老年人,人们会买杂货,然后把它们放在篮子里带回家。

如果你买了鸡蛋,你不应该把它们都放在同一个篮子里,因为如果你不小心掉到篮子里或撞到什么东西,篮子会掉在地上,你所有的鸡蛋都会碎。相反,你应该更加保守,把一些鸡蛋放在多个篮子里,这样,如果其中一个失败了,你仍然可以依靠其他鸡蛋继续留在那里。

5. It’s no use crying over spilt milk!

The company wants us to try to fix all the problems that we have had with our new product, but I honestly think that it’s no use crying over spilt milk! We should just move on and work on our next product.

公司希望我们设法解决新产品出现的所有问题,但我真诚地认为,覆水难收!我们应该继续做下一个产品。

I know Jim feels that he will never love again after the girl he was going to propose to broke up with him. But, as I keep telling him, it’s no use crying over spilt milk! We love and we learn.

我知道吉姆觉得在他打算和他分手的那个女孩之后,他再也不会爱她了。但是,正如我一直告诉他的,覆水难收!我们爱过并从中吸取教训。
