【Grammar Tip】

Your best bet for a healthy snack is locally produced, fresh fruit and vegetables.

"your best bet"
"bet" usually meaning "the act of gambling"
但跟 "your best" 結合時,
整個phrase mean "the smartest or wisest thing to do in a certain situation"
The smartest thing for a healthy snack is locally produced, fresh fruit and vegetables.

我們常將 bet 解釋作打賭,但 bet 其實也可以是「對策、辦法」的意思,
所以 your best bet 就是你最好的對策。

1. Your best bet for getting to work on time is to take a taxi since you are already late.
2. Your best bet for getting a dress you really like is to have one made.

3. Getting a flu shot is your best bet for avoiding the flu.
4. If you're having trouble with your coworkers, your best bet would be to talk to your supervisor.
