My Russian tortoise ate fine yesterday, I gave her some new repashy grassland tortoise diet and today I mixed it with my tortoise food and she wouldn't eat it, it's just the repashy mixed with several different types of lettuce! Also she ate a ton yesterday because here light was out for a day and she just slept through the day. Should I be worried or just see if she eats.

Check your temps. Remember they have to be warm enough to digest

temperatures are always the first suspect when a tortoise doesn't eat
