What’s cookin’?

Homemade granola

The hosts of KNOM’s Morning Show – volunteers Dayneé Rosales and Lucus Keppel – have been cooking up lots of great things this year. Literally.

Lucus makes almond butterFor months now, Lucus and Dayneé have collaborated with representatives from the CAMP Department, a division of Nome’s hospital that specializes in nutrition and healthy lifestyles. CAMP’s Katie Gonzales and Megan Timm have joined our Morning Show crew, on-air, for a weekly segment called Breakfast Wednesdays. Each week, the four of them prepare a different healthy breakfast food and talk about various topics in food nutrition. (The photos, for example, show Lucus preparing almond butter – a healthy alternative to peanut butter – and finished, homemade granola.)

Our Morning Show (airing weekdays from 6 to 10am) is one of KNOM’s most popular programs, and we know that segments like Breakfast Wednesday make an impact – especially in a region beset with high rates of diabetes and other health issues. Thank you for making shows like this possible!
