So, You're Thinking About Becoming a Vegan?
So, You're Thinking About Becoming a Vegan?
Episode 23: So, you're thinking about becoming a vegan…? With Tomi Makanjuola In this week's episode, and in a nod to National Vegetarian Week in the UK, Chioma and Sareta speak to vegan chef Tomi Makanjuola, aka The Vegan Nigerian. (Sidenote: While the hosts are aware that being a vegan and a vegetarian are not the same thing, as Sareta says, "they sit under the same umbrella".   Tomi grew up as part of a meat-loving family in Lagos, Nigeria. During this time, she developed her love for food and the making thereof. Fast forward a few years to living in France, another meat-obsessed part of the world, during her early twenties. Tomi had a dietary epiphany after realising meat's effect on her health and energy levels. Overnight, she became The Vegan Nigerian and has never looked back.  Not only does Tomi post her mouth-watering creations on her Instagram page, but they can also be found on her blog and on YouTube. It doesn't stop there – she has two cookbooks, "Vegan Nigerian Kitchen" and "The Plantain Cookbook". They showcase how easy it is to incorporate veganism into our diets.   Topics discussed during this episode:  The differences between being plant-based and being a vegan.  The different shades of veganism – they are not a monolith!Challenges of recreating Nigerian meals minus the meat. Getting creative with deserts in West African cuisine. The politics of meat substitutes. Allergies and intolerances. The many ways to (say and) enjoy plantain. Making Vegan school dinner options compulsory in schools. Advice on where to start in the journey towards becoming a vegan.  Tomi's advice is not to focus on perfection and take it easy on yourself if you're thinking about transitioning. So, while they may not be becoming vegans this week, they will be making plantain pancakes – Mmmmm…  Thank you, Tomi, for making our mouths water and making veganism such an accessible and tasty option.  Join them each week for a new episode wherever you catch your podcasts (and while you're there, subscribe too!).  Head to the blog to read more about Tomi - https://saretafontaine.com/thinking-about-becoming-a-vegan/ Follow Tomi on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/vegannigerian  For recipes and videos, visit: http://www.vegannigerian.com  Follow 'Women Who Rebrand' on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/womenrebranded/  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

The Importance of Choosing Yourself
This week, Chioma and Sareta talked to Tamu Thomas, founder of Live Three Sixty. She's a well-being Coach, qualified Social Worker & Somatic Coach. She helps over-functioning, highly ambitious women tune in to how powerful they are. Tamu supports her clients so they can begin to create systems of care for themselves and avoid rinsing themselves out. If you don't already, get your favourite pen and your prettiest notebook because you will want to take some notes during this episode of Women Who Rebrand!  The ladies talk about Tamu's life journey and how, even if it didn't feel like it initially, her experiences led her to where she is now. She has always been a gatherer of people, bringing them together and organising events, from her school days, nay, nursery days! Formally, she ran a Brunch Club, where women in the creative industries could come together and discuss in a supportive environment. There was also Motherhood Reconstructed, with one of our previous guests - Leah Samuel, where Black mothers could come together and share experiences. She has been connecting people, from seemingly different and incompatible groups, for years. Nothing has been an accident; everything happens for a reason!  Tamu describes herself as the 'Purveyor of Joy'; she explains joy as a settled state of confidence, contentment and hope. Her theory helps us see how prioritising yourself and setting boundaries can ensure that your happiness is protected. She begs us to give ourselves a break and show ourselves some compassion.   "I can't choose you above me…if it starts to feel like a pair of 'too tight' skinny jeans, I'm out of there!" "Women Who Rebrand" is a podcast with honest and humorous conversations all about the natural and individual transitional phases people experience to grow, start over or ‘rebrand’ to become their most authentic selves.

Period Products with Lauren Derrett
Earth Week may have been last week, but sustainability and environmental awareness are for life! Sareta and Chioma continue the theme by chatting with Lauren Derrett, founder of Wear 'em Out, a reusable period pad brand that's changing the way people period.    Lauren left school at 14 and describes herself as an introverted Jack of all trades. She started her first business aged 40 and credits her success to being open to the lessons that failure brings and can pivot at a moment's notice.    As converts to reusable period products, the ladies are keen to understand why more of us should be using them and why it's essential to recognise that not everyone can – and that's ok. They also have an interesting chat about some of the sacrifices we must make, even when we want to save the planet because we do what we can. As Lauren says, "we're here to respect the 50 shades of green", so no judgement.  Lauren shared information about her educational Wear 'em Out packs during the show. They were created to be used in a learning environment and strike up a much-needed conversation around periods.

African takeover with M3NSA
This week, the ladies are fed up with the four-seasons-in-one-day weather in the UK and take Women Who Rebrand to sunnier climes, namely, back to West Africa. Sareta reveals her African ancestry, and they discover they are actually cousins…ish…kinda…maybe…They fail to agree on the definition of first and second-generation British. The hosts and their special guest swap thoughts on the new Netflix show, "Young, Famous and African", which follows the peaceful lives of a group of the super-rich, super-dramatic. African celebrities in "Real Housewives of" franchise style. Can you guess how much they love it…? Here's a hint: a lot!In a slight deviation from their usual format, Sareta and Chioma welcome their first male guest. British-Ghanaian producer, composer, rapper, singer, and filmmaker (Yes, he really is), Bondzie Mensa Ansah, known professionally as M3NSA.M3NSA has a career spanning over 20 years. Performances include Glastonbury and headlining at numerous music festivals across Europe and Damon Albarn's Africa Express Tours, and a MOBO nominated album. M3NSA talks to the ladies about the pressure of being a creative in a family full of creatives. The trio discuss the relatively recent reinvention of African music, dance, art and culture as "cool" and its acceptance into popular culture. They also get deep and bust some myths about Africa.Their conversation covers how the pandemic put a hard stop to M3NSA doing what he loves as a creative in the performing arts. He shares how he was forced to reflect on previous decisions, slow down and channel his art in a new direction. His new way of thinking culminated in the 2021 release of his self-titled solo album, "Bondzie". A series of visuals, content and a short documentary, "The Making", was released last month.During the show, M3NSA also breaks down his experience of fatherhood and the newly formed post-pandemic relationship with his children.Thank you for being a great, first male guest, M3NSA!Head to the blog to read more about M3NSA - Women Who Rebrand - The Blog Listen to M3NSA's music here: Songwhip & Spotify Keep up to date with M3NSA on Instagram M3NSA is prolific on Twitter.

Yvadney Davis: Fashion Stylist & Contemporary Artist
Episode 15 - Yvadney Davis: Fashion Stylist & Contemporary ArtistIn this episode, among other things, Sareta and Chioma create their own Dictionary of Long and Complex Words and demand an entourage! They deserve it, dammit!And to highlight that rebranding does not mean saying goodbye to what went before, they also welcome back a special guest, Yvadney Davis, a London-based portrait artist championing the Caribbean Diaspora and the middle years. After realising that life is too short not to do what makes you happy, she returned to her art practice for the first time in over 15 years whilst enjoying a career as a Fashion Stylist. Homeschooling her two children in the middle of the global pandemic gave her the time to create, pause, reflect and pick up her paintbrush. Yvadney has transitioned creatively and found a way to enjoy both of her passions simultaneously.Yvadney talks to the ladies about fashion styling for kids and adults, dopamine dressing, radiators and drains, being inspired in her art by her working-class, Caribbean roots and prejudice faced by her and the models that she works within the predominately white, creative industries.And how does she do it all? In her own words, "learn to stay no to things…find your real-world inspiration…your cheerleaders…actively make time for things…and celebrate the good and the joy".Yvadney is currently exhibiting in the "Some of Us Are Brave" exhibition in The Windows Gallery, Oxford City Centre, until 27 March.You can also find Yvadney on Instagram:For art - @yvadneydavisartFor styling -  @yvadneyAnd if you're wondering where you can purchase some of Yvadney's beautiful art, it's here: https://yvadney.art/Head to the blog to read more about Yvadney - https://saretafontaine.com/fashion-stylist-artist-yvadney-davis"Women Who Rebrand" is a podcast with honest and humorous conversations about the natural and individual transitional phases people experience to grow, start over or 'rebrand' to become their most authentic selves.

Celebrating International Women's Day with Johanna Rossi, The Soul Gardener
Episode 13: Celebrating IWD with Johanna Rossi, the Soul Gardener.(Spoiler Alert: This episode contains some major Love is Blind Season 2 spoilers from 2:40 to 16:12. Don't say we didn't warn you! 😇)It's International Women's Day on Tuesday 8 March, and this year's theme is #BreakTheBias. The aspiration is a gender-equal world where bias, stereotypes and discrimination no longer exist, and differences are valued and celebrated.In episode 13 of 'Women Who Rebrand', Chioma and Sareta have chosen to mark the day by speaking to Johanna Rossi, a Holistic mentor and rebel with a big heart ❤️ - the Soul Gardener."We are taught that we have to dig and uproot to discover who we are…To actually become our most authentic selves, we have to root and nurture ourselves back to our truth." Hence, the Soul Gardener.As a self-proclaimed "dark worker" (it's not as sinister as it sounds, trust us), Johanna supports women in identifying and meeting their needs in-person, virtually and as part of a Women's Circle. "You can't expect anyone to know your needs or treat you the way that you deserve to be treated if you don't know your needs."How about instead of setting goals and pushing yourself to deliver on them, you were able to act based on your emotions? And what about, responding to situations by asking yourself if things are happening to you or just around you (in your energy field)? Then what about feeling inspired to act as opposed to motivated to act?Johanna is multi-passionate and multi-faceted and embraces this. As well as giving us ALL of the gardening metaphors, she is also a wife and mother to two wonderful old souls and a gorgeous Vizsla, a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, Artist, Entrepreneur, Skilful Creative, Intuitive, Writer, Podcaster, Certified Spiritual Guide, Bach Flower Remedy Practitioner student and Herbalist in training.

Reiki with Leah - Indigo Healing
Reiki with Leah - Indigo Healing. Episode 11Sareta and Chioma catch up on their respective half-term breaks before discussing complementary and alternative therapies this week.The ladies have a special guest this week, Leah, a certified distance Reiki specialist & crystal healer. You might think of Reiki as “hippie-dippy”, but did you know that Reiki originates from Japan. The home of the Samurai. Balance, right?Reiki joins two words together – “rei,” meaning universal, and “ki,” meaning life energy.Leah shares her journey into Reiki, post-pandemic (did you know that distance Reiki can be just as effective as in-person?), and how she can combine her love of crystals with her practice.Leah and Sareta cover tips on how to remember exactly what each of your crystals does. How to charge them, where to keep your crystals inside your house (who knew there are best places to store them?), and where to keep your crystals, so you don’t leave the house without them.Holistic therapies have had a place in Leah’s life for decades, for moments when she needed clarity, revitalisation balancing, regrounding and to step away from everyday life for an hour or two. The opportunity presented itself for Leah to become a Reiki and Crystal Healing Practitioner; the timing was perfectly aligned with a period in her life. Everything was telling her she was ready, listen to the podcast to find out how.Want to know even more, follow Indigo Healing on Instagram, or book a session.‘Women Who Rebrand’ on Instagram – @WomenRebranded See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
