There is a saying that the longer it takes to make a loaf, the longer it will remain fresh; whether that's true or not though, I don't know. It may be because longer proofing is normally required with less yeast and that would make sense.
You mean sourdough bread.

I put anything healthy in it
Thyme (or other spices of your choice, I wary)
A little syrup or sugar to help the yeast, just a table spoon
Can also put in nuts, raisins, seeds or whatever. Pieces of dried fruit is awesome.
Really good post.
