生活小常识：多年以来，健康专家都建议人们不要在睡觉之前吃零食。但是有时候，一些合适的零食可以帮助你在晚上做个好梦。然而有些时候，我们会做出一些不好的决定，吃那些阻碍我们晚上睡觉做美梦的一些食物。（For years, health experts advised that you should never snack before bedtime. But sometimes, the right kind of snack is good fuel for your dreams. Other times though, we make poor decisions and eat things that are not good for getting that desired beauty sleep.）
We have all been there. After a night of drinks with friends, what tastes better than pizza? But the cheese has been shown in recent studies to cause nightmares. And while you are having scary dreams about your thighs rubbing together, that tomato sauce can cause your stomach to hurt. If you are going to eat pizza, do it early in the evening for dinner. Eating this many calories late at night is going to affect your waistline quite adversely.
2. Sugary boxed cereals
It sounds like a bowl of sweet cereal with ice cold milk will really hit the spot late at night. Isn’t milk supposed to help you sleep?
If you are really hankering for cereal, make sure to eat one that is low in sugar and high in fiber instead. Sugary cereals can cause spikes in your blood sugar that will disrupt your sleep.
3. Spicy stuff
You might think that leftover Thai food or some other spicy food is a delicious treat, but eating it before bedtime could cause heartburn and stomach issues, which will keep you from getting those precious zzz’s.
4. Big beefy burgers
Just like pizza, eating something this hefty before bed is not a good decision. Moreover, meat takes a lot of digesting to break down so it will interfere with your sleep in a major way.
If you crave a burger, consider trying a vegan version. You will never want to eat beefy burgers again, I promise.
1.hit the spot 使人满足；正合需要；恰到好处
Tina: "I think the Saudi Arabian will hit the spot today."
Tina也开个玩笑，说“I think the Saudi Arabian will hit the spot today.“ 我想今天来点阿拉伯口味挺合胃口的。
2.interfere with 干扰，干涉；妨碍；触动或弄坏；乱动；与……抵触
But that is your affair; we do not interfere with your problems.
3.be low in 缺乏
Skipping breakfast also means your blood sugar will be low in the morning and energy levels down.
4.rub together 使两种物体相互反复摩擦
But long before our ancestors began to throw torches or cigarette butts, fires were started by lightning strikes, or by sparks given off when rocks rub together in an avalanche.
