Eating is something people do every day, so there are tons of expressions about it. In this episode, we talk about the amount that people eat. Sometimes we have big appetites and other times we don’t want to eat much. Sometimes our eyes are bigger than our stomachs and we make so much food that we can’t eat it all. By the end of this episode, you’ll probably want a snack.

Maura Harp

Maura: Now that we’ve talked about not eating very much, let’s look at some expressions that have to do with eating a whole bunch of food.
Harp: This is much more like me.
Maura: The next expression is to eat like a horse.
Harp: Yes. To eat like a horse.
Maura: And this makes sense because a horse is a pretty big animal, so we can imagine that it must need to eat a lot because it’s so big.
Harp: Yup. And it seems like horses are just eating all the time.
Maura: That’s true. You always see their mouths moving and chewing and chomping.
