안녕하세요 English with Yoo! 의 Jennifer Yoo입니다. English with Yoo! 는 일상생활에서 자주 쓰이는 다양한 표현들을 익히는 시간입니다.

I’ll give you a daily introduction to some meaningful and useful everyday English words and phrases! So let’s get started today!

오늘의 영어 표현은: My eyes are bigger than my stomach

There is an old saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. 하루가장 중요식사아침이라는 말이 있죠. And that’s why here in America, children are taught the importance of breakfast and how one should never skip that meal. 미국에서는 어렸을때부터 아침을 꼭 챙겨 먹어야된다는 것을 배웁니다. It’s also very important for your health. 아침식사는 건강에도 매우 중요합니다.

Because breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, my eyes sometimes become bigger than my stomach. I think it’s because I just love all the selection of American breakfast food. There are cereal, scrambled eggs, oatmeal, pancakes or waffles, fruits and much more!

I spoke with Esther and I found out that I’m not the only one who loves breakfast! 그럼 제가 애스터와 함께 대화것을 먼저 들어보시죠!

오늘의 영어 표현은 my eyes are bigger than my stomach 입니다? Listen carefully!

My eyes are bigger than my stomach

Jen: Have you ever had your eyes bigger than your stomach for breakfast?
Esther: Absolutely! I’ve often taken much more than I can actually eat.
Jen: What do you usually eat for breakfast? Do you eat a big breakfast?
Esther: I’m a nurse, so I always eat breakfast because I know it’s the most important meal that you eat every day. Also, I like to maintain my weight, so I do eat breakfast. I have either oatmeal with milk and raisin and no sugar or maybe some kind of organic granola cereal.
Jen: Oh! You’re making me hungry!

제가 애스터에게 ‘너는 아침에 네 원래 양 보다 더 욕심부리다가 음식을 남길때도 있니? Have you ever had your eyes bigger than your stomach for breakfast?’ 라고 물어보니까 애스터는 ‘당연하지! 아침 음식을 생각보다 많이 만든적이있지.’ 하더라고요 그래서 ‘그럼 아침에는 주로 무얼 먹니?’ 라고 물어봤더니 애스터는 ‘나는 간호사라서 아침이 얼마나 중요한 식사인지 알아. 그래서 난 하루도 빠지지 않고 아침을 꼭 챙겨 먹지. 또 아침을 잘 챙겨 먹어야지 내 몸 무게를 유지할수있거든. 나는 설탕이 들어가지않은 오트밀 (귀리 가루) 를 우유에다가 타먹거나 시리얼 (곡물식) 을 우유에 타서 먹지’ 라고 하네요.

오늘의 영어 표현은: My eyes are bigger than my stomach 입니다.

말 그대로하면my eyes are bigger than my stomach 내 눈이 내 배보다 더 컸어. 이런 뜻인데요, 내가 음식에 너무 욕심을 냈어. 라는 뜻입니다.

제가 애스터 에게 “Have you ever had your eyes bigger than your stomach for breakfast? ” 라고 물어봤죠?
