Cinco de Mayo Eats

Today was supposed to be Raw Food Tuesday, my once-a-month raw food cleanse. But I spent all three weekend days at the Beale Street Music Festival (where I saw Fall Out Boy, Snoop Dogg, and Rise Against!), and that meant no time for shopping at Whole Foods. For raw days, I usually have to buy bulk raw nuts at WF, and that's a good 20-minute drive from my house.

I did, however, get a chance to stop by the downtown farmers market on Saturday morning before heading to the festival. I picked up some delicious-looking rainbow chard and some rustic sweet potatoes from my pals at Dodson Farms ... and those items were just what I needed to make Show Me Vegan's Sweet Potato, Chard, and Mushroom Vegan Quesadillas:

For some reason, I can't get enough of Lisa's quesadillas. Every time she posts a quesadilla recipe, I have to make it. These were so amazing! They're stuffed with mashed sweet taters, sauteed baby bella mushrooms and chard, kidney beans, chipotle, and Mexican spices. The recipe is here.

I'll squeeze a raw food day in soon, I promise. But I don't regret skipping out on it today. These quesadillas were so worth it and super-healthy with all those veggies stuffed inside.
