A bullet blender is my breakfast weapon of choice. Unlike larger counter-top blenders for blitzing in bulk, an easy-to-store, compact blender allows you to create a delicious, health-conscious morning smoothie or protein shake directly into a hand-held beaker, to carry with you as you go about your day.
These might include fresh or frozen vegetables, berries, nuts, seeds, spices and oats, paired with liquids such as milk, juice, yogurt, coconut water or almond milk (you’ll find our guide to the best NutriBullet breakfast recipes to try here). You get the picture – the possibilities are endless.

The ECB ended the year with a vote on December 3 to cut its deposit rate to minus 0.3 per cent and an expansion in asset purchases that leaves its quantitative easing programme at 1.46tn. The move came days before the US Federal Reserve increased interest rates for the first time since 2006, underlining the sharply divergent policies being pursued on either side of the Atlantic.

So, is the NutriBullet Balance better than the standard best selling models? And is NutriBullet still the best buy in bullet blender world? When testing, I took into account factors including ease of use, smart technology, special features, price, power and speed, capacity and the success of my smoothies into account.
1. NutriBullet Balance
Why we like it: The NutriBullet Balance surpassed expectations – health-conscious foodies can access hundreds of recipes via an app, calculating and tracking nutritional content with no need to measure or weigh
The NutriBullet Balance takes a very good product – the original NutriBullet – and makes it that little bit better by adding (genuinely useful) smart functionality, including an in-built weighing scale to perfect your smoothie.
Across all European schools, the average salary of alumni three years after graduation ranges from $143,000 for executive MBA graduates to $54,000 for MiM graduates. MBA graduates earned on average $123,000. Spanish and German MiM graduates enjoyed the highest salary three years after graduation, both $70,000 on average. French MBA graduates and Swiss EMBA graduates top their salary scale, with average salaries of $137,000 and $166,000 respectively.
Unlike most boy-band dudes going solo, he never sounds like he's sweating to get taken seriously – he never loses touch with the exuberance and swagger he brought to One Direction in the first place. So get used to this man – you'll be hearing a lot more from him.
Chen Lihua, 75, founder of Fu Wah International Group, a company engaged in real estate development, has become China's richest woman with a net worth totaling 50.5 billion yuan, according to the report Richest Women in China 2016 released by Hurun Research Institution.
Meanwhile, producer prices were deflating at a rate of -5.9 per cent, a six-year low, for a third straight month.
Sadly, as with all bullet blenders, it's best to rinse and clean the blades and beakers immediately after use with warm soapy water to prevent congealing (a sponge-on-a-stick is your friend, should your nut butter cool and stick to the sides).
But Moonlight kept pace with it over the course of a marathon four-hour ceremony. Barry Jenkins and Tarell Alvin McCraney won best adapted screenplay, while Mahershala Ali won best supporting actor — the first Oscar for a Muslim American actor.
“We sell cars+ , if you don’t give us cars, naturally we won’t be able to go on, we’ll close,” Wang said in an interview, estimating import dealers are losing between 3 million and 10 million yuan a year each.

While people in first-tier cities are under more pressure, smaller cities may not be the ideal place to live either, according to the 2016 Annual Report on Social Mentality of China by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.
So far, this is all very standard – but the NutriBullet Balance really stands out because of the app it pairs with.
Linking to the free NutriBullet balance app via BlueTooth (available on the App Store or Google Play) proved easier than I thought – and it opened the doors to a wider world of blending. Among the many added functions are real-time nutritional data, an impressive number of recipes, and a recipe creation tool that comes up with concoctions based on what's already in your larder.

Human bodies are frail, easily damaged packages full of parts that can never fully come back once lost. Luckily, researchers worldwide are working on replacing every bit of the body to make us all cyborgs.
Mr Erdogan, who has also benefited domestically from the row with Mr Rutte, has sought to broaden his diplomatic dispute to take on all of the EU, particularly Germany, which has had similar run-ins with Ankara over campaigning in Germany’s large Turkish community.

2.The Tianjin Explosions
The beauty of all this is that the app takes the guesswork out of blending – I found it particularly useful for making sure smoothies don’t end up overly sugary, but are still tasty. Usually, I just chuck them in and it’s pot luck whether the results will be pleasant and balanced or not.
I was also impressed how I could make choices based on my personal dietary preferences. You can set wellness goals and dietary restrictions via the “virtual nutritionist” tab, which has options specifically for weight loss friendly, diabetic friendly, FODMAP, sports performance, heart health and energy boosting drinks.
Yan Pu, head of portfolio review in Asia at Vanguard, suspects the Asian product mix may be holding things back. For example, Asian providers offer plenty of equity ETFs but very few fixed income products. In the US, she notes, fixed income ETFs are growing rapidly.

Ms Rogers added that she had not given her son parental consent to play the game as stated in its terms and conditions, and that as the game was free to play, the studio could not claim loss of profit as a result of the cheats.
2. Salter Nutripro Multi-Purpose 1200w nutrient extractor blender
Why we like it: We found the Salter NutriPro to be a good match for the NutriBullet – at half the price
British cookware brand Salter’s take on a bullet blender is half the price of NutriBullet's standard model (see below) and a third of the price of the NutriBullet Balance, but still promises to afford a healthier lifestyle and make consuming nutrient-extracted smoothies easy.
Like the NutriBullet Balance, it has a high power of 1200w, which makes it speedy – and the one litre blending cup makes enough smoothies for two (useful for couples or small families). We liked it so much, in fact, that we preferred it to the original NutriBullet.
明年，寻找新楼盘的买家将会有更多的选择。根据科克伦阳光营销集团(Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group)提供的数据，明年（2015年——译注）曼哈顿、布鲁克林和皇后区长岛市(Long Island City)新上市的共管公寓预计将增加一倍以上，从2014年的3444套增加到8366套。
With the majority of professional advisors (myself included) preaching the benefits of global diversification to their clients, 2014 looks more like a draw than an outright victory in the harsh light of December’s low winter sun. Consider the fact that, through last week, the MSCI World Index gained just 2% on the year, with nearly 5% drops for both the MSCI Emerging Markets index and the EAFE index of developed markets outside of the United States. Ironically, the single best-performing foreign market in the world, the Shanghai Composite of mainland Chinese equities (up 45%) is the only one that U.S. investors could not actually put their money into.

10. The difference between a lie and a promise is that the believer of a lie is the listener and the believer of a promise is the speaker.
As well as the 1 litre blending cup, it comes with a "NutriPro" blender power base unit, two 800ml blending cups in which to blend and carry slightly smaller portions, two drinking lids for sipping, and two storage lids (in case you want to save some for later). The blending cups are proudly BPA free (a plastic chemical which many people prefer to avoid).
While in the course of testing the best bullet blenders, I became an unfettered NutriBullet fan (albeit about five years late to the party, having used a less powerful Breville blender previously). But the Salter version really gives the beloved brand a run for its money and does the same job incredibly well. Aesthetically, it might not be quite as swish, but given how good the Salter is (they're very similar in terms of speed and noise), at this prince point it really is an attractive buy.
3. Nutribullet 1000 Series 9 piece blender
Why we like it: the original style NutriBullet still has much to recommend it – without the extra faff and screen time associated with the NutriBullet Balance
So, how does the NutriBullet 1000 series – an upgrade on the original bullet, but without the smart sensor technology and app connectivity – match up to the NutriBullet Balance?
With the prices of most commodities having recovered somewhat since February 2016, the year-on-year fall in unit prices has slowed to around 5 per cent.
Because it has fewer features to think about it, it’s easier to get going (if you loathe screen time, it’s probably the better option for you). All you have to do is load your ingredients into the flask, blend and drink.
Finally, there’s the user guide and recipe book. It doesn’t contain so many recipes as the Balance app, but it’s easy to seek out ideas online, or you might want to blend instinctively and come up with your own. I tried this model after going for a morning run and blended frozen cherries, a banana, a handful of oats, oat milk and some cherry and dark chocolate flavoured pea protein powder, and it worked a dream.
An upgrade on my old two piece Blend Active (£17.99, Amazon), the ColourMix Family Blender by Breville comes with two 600ml and two 300ml sports style bottles for blending on the go.
Here are the top 5 share repurchases authorized so far this year, according to data collected by Birinyi.
Mr Williams’ medium to long-term view is arguably more gloomy than that of Mr Baweja. He believes the 25-30 year period during which growth in global exports far exceeded that of global GDP, represented a “surge of globalisation that has come to an end”. In other words, the current slowdown in trade growth is structural, not cyclical.
1. Hokkaido, Japan-Though known primarily to the outside world for its ski resorts and powdery snow, Hokkaido's year-round beauty might soon become a more familiar sight to foreign visitors. The new bullet-train service from Tokyo should help.
A new paper on the Dutch debacle, coauthored by Peter Koudijs at Stanford Graduate School of Business, turns up modern-day lessons about the not-so-scientific ways in which personal experience rather than market information can determine optimism, pessimism, and access to credit.
It also has a citrus juicer attachments, in case you want to juice oranges and lemons directly into the bottles, as well as the usual power base and standard blade attachment. The easy to grip bottles themselves are BPA free, and promise to be durable, shatterproof, odour resistant and dishwasher safe.
Really, the Breville is a starter pack for adding smoothies into your routine, but it just doesn’t have the power to blitz tougher ingredients efficiently (you’ll just about get away with things like apples, cucumber and ginger). My other criticism is that because the bottles don’t have a wide mouth and are tall and slim, it can be quite difficult to clean them after they’ve been left for a while.
5. Vitamix Ascent Blending Beaker attachments
Why we like it: Buying a countertop blender with bullet attachments could be a better option if you’re after a two-in-one buy
When Meghan Markle relocated from her native LA to Toronto, where Suits was filmed, her Vitamix went with her. "If I blend some apple, kale, spinach, lemon, and ginger in my Vitamix in the morning and bring it to work, I always find that sipping on that is a much better boost than a cup of espresso,” she told Today magazine.
In a bid to curb capital outflows and ease downward pressure on the renminbi, Chinese regulators have imposed a series of new restrictions on outbound dealmaking in recent months. The new curbs came after outbound investment in non-financial assets surged by 44 per cent in 2016 to a record $170bn.
Having reached the current stage of development, China can now advance only through reform and innovation. We have the largest quality workforce as well as the largest pool of scientists, engineers and professionals in the world, and their potential for innovation is truly tremendous.
A Chinese Poet’s Unusual Path From Isolated Farm Life to Celebrity
With best wishes for a happy New Year!
The 1200w A3500i Ascent is the blender I use at home to cook for a crowd and for food prep, and I was delighted with the blending beaker attachments I finally ordered, which have their own blade base and fit snugly on the same power base I already had on the countertop.
The lids are ergonomically designed – they were the most pleasant to drink from of all the bottles, beakers and flasks I tried. Personally, I prefer this option in terms of versatility when it comes to the Vitamix, and it’s easy to switch between the two – but if you really don’t want to have a larger blender taking up space, Vitamix also make the Vitamix S30 Personal Blender (£299, Curry’s).
Thus it's rather a shock when you first encounter Nick D'Aloisio striding into London's Bar Boulud restaurant, firmly shaking hands and proceeding to outline his entrepreneurial vision. To imagine him in person, picture a Silicon Valley CEO blessed with an easy manner and 97th percentile media skills. Picture a guy who can confidently expound (while maintaining steady eye contact) on topics ranging from Noam Chomsky's theories to the science of neural networks to the immigrant mind-set to the Buddhist concept of jnana. And now picture this fellow trapped inside the gangly body of a British teen who might easily be mistaken for a member of the pop boy band One Direction-clad in a hipster T-shirt beneath a fitted blazer, hair swooping over his forehead, taking bites of a cheeseburger between bold pronouncements.
6. Lakeland Personal Blender and Smoothie Maker
Why we like it: An easy to store blender with hidden features that does the job well
Lakeland’s own brand compact blender has much to recommend it. The 600ml capacity measuring jug-cum-blender has a handle and dual measurements (ml and oz), and even hides a secret 30ml measuring cup within the lid.
The blending jug isn’t so portable, but it comes with a snazzy 600ml sports-style bottle in which to pour your creation (the problem with not drinking straight from the blending jug is that you end up with double the washing up though, sadly).
Global smartphone shipments reached 1.47 billion units in 2016, up by 2.3 percent from last year, said IDC.
It worked perfectly well when I made a smoothie with frozen pineapple, dessicated coconut and coconut milk, though fresh pineapple may have been quicker and smoother.
Between 1991 and 2010, the cancer mortality rate fell by a whopping 20%, which is more than 10% a decade. One day we will say goodbye to cancer for good.
