    Keeping fit is a lot tougher that we think it is. Building a key habit to follow a strict routine is mandatory in the process

    This is a 'no knead' bread. It is prepped by an initial mixing, followed by a series of timed 'folds', then shaping and proofing. The bread isn't flattened after the rise. I follow the recipes in this book - Flour Water Salt Yeast: The Fundamentals of Artisan Bread and Pizza: Ken Forkish

    I baked the bread in a dutch oven at 475 F. 30 minutes with the lid on and another 20 minutes with the lid off.

    Yes, not scoring the top was intentional. The folding process creates natural seams that open up during the baking. Looks quite lovely!

    I used to have a Almond cookbook. Can't locate it now. I saw some older posts on almond flour, and what to do with it. Instead of making sugary things with it, one may make breads with it. I found that the flour at 20 to 30% makes the bread's texture much finer (holes are smaller) and it has that nice nutty (malted milk kind of, horlicksy) flavor.

    Hey Satchi..didnt want to hijack @Shanvy 's thread with too many details about calories and such. :)
    I would like a bit more details(ok ok lot more)

    For eg.
    Morning: Coffee
    Milk (full fat?fat free? measure in ml)
    Sugar (1tsp ,2 ???)
    Toast with salad and air fried cutlet in the morning.
    How many slices? White brown? did it have butter on it if so how much?
    cutlet...store bough? Do u have calorie content marked? homemade?
    salad...what veggies how much and did u use any dressing?
    Can u list ingredients appr that went into it..1/5 potato,1/10 carrot 1tsp oil,etc etc
    Tea 1/2 glass
    Same as coffee..what went into making that tea ?
    1/2 glass neer mor

    Afternoon: Tender coconut meat
    Was it just the meat or did u have the water too? Coconut water has calories and sugar
    1 elakki banana
    1/2 glass tea

    Same as coffee..what went into making that tea ?

    Late afternoon: 1 katori of sambar rice (brown rice)
    Can u measure using a std measures? For how much dry rice to make that 1 katori.
    The reason I am asking is people have varying rice to water ratios.
    1/2 glass coffee -What went into making that tea?

    Dinner..what did u have for dinner?

    Dear Satchi.ur post just confirmed my suspicions.
    For ur age ht and weight..with zero exercise factored in u need 1700 cal per day.
    Here is ur calorie intake for the day (used my fitnesspal) it comes to about 1000. Its ridiculously low. Even if I add an extra 300 cal for error in measurements its still way less than ur needs.
    At this rate u should be losing a lot of weight. Something is not right.
    Please check with ur doc ASAP.

    You have immense patience. I'll never be able to make bread at home but here is some home made dahi cultured butter for your bread. I wouldn't have gone to this trouble either but the kid will only eat Ammamma's ghee and I figured out that the difference was in the thayir cultured butter.
