Raw food for the athlete: Zucchini fritters

These zucchini fritters are such a versatile treat – they can be eaten at breakfast with eggs and smoked salmon, a treat for lunch with avocado spread on them and served with a large salad. They also make a filling, delicious snack or even a great accompaniment to a light dinner with soup or grilled fish and salad.

Perhaps not the prettiest looking things ever made, what these fritters lack in visual appeal they make up in taste.
