Why we love Sourdough Pumpkin Loaf Recipe
Have you started a sourdough start yet? I wish you would join in the fun cuz it adds a delightful tang to recipes and of course offers other benefits too!
This loaf takes a little processing time- it has to sit overnight to work it’s sourdough awesomeness. Then add in the rest of ingredients the next day and bake it off.
It’s easy but just remember to plan on 12-24 hours for it do it’s sourdough magic.

Helpful baking tips for higher elevations
- If you live 3,000 feet above sea level or more it is considered high elevation and may take longer to cook/bake.
- Adjustments are needed for 5000+ feet and above:
- Reduce baking powder: for each teaspoon, decrease 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon.
- Reduce sugar: for each cup, decrease 2 tablespoons.
- Increase liquid: for each cup, add 2 to 4 tablespoons.
- Increase oven temperature by 25 degrees F.
- Check if it is done a little early.
- This takes some trial and error to get it right for you.

Fit Friday with Nichole
I am a fan of routine and schedules, kind of. I like having my days structured but within that structure I also need to have some flexibility. Is that thoroughly confusing for the rest of you? Because to me it makes perfect sense.
I lift three days a week, I know that and I have that as part of my routine. The flexibility come in with how that strength session looks is totally dependent on how the rest of my week is looking (running schedule), how my body is feeling, and what is available at the gym that day.
This week I am focusing on a strength session that will require a barbell, a rig or pull-up bar, and a box or bench
. If you just said, “I’m out,” with the pull-up bar give me a chance.
Yes, I love pull-ups and I have been doing them since I was in college but you don’t have to be able to do pull-ups unassisted for this workout. If you aren’t there I want you to grab a box or a bench to put under that bar and you are going to do jumping pull-ups today.
Now that we cleared that up let’s get to it.
