Mark Bittman's simple, fast and healthy Edamame Salad.

By simply watching Mark Bittman prepare super-fast, ridiculously flavorful and undeniably healthy recipes, you’ll arm yourself with the tools you need for a successful pre-pool season slim-down. We can almost guarantee it.

But we’d like to stress that it’s “Shape Up for Summer” Season, not “Suffer Through Tasteless Low-Fat Foods So You Look Good at the Beach Season,” so in that spirit, Mark Bittman, champion of fresh, flavorful ingredients, offers light and healthy recipes made from healthy ingredients. It is possible to eat well and look good.

Edamame Salad (pictured above)

Mark says: “Edamame are young soy beans that you can simply parboil and eat; in this salad the acid of the lemon and the tang of the cheese really enhance their naturally buttery flavor.”

Edamame are high in fiber, iron, vitamins A and C, and low in fat an calories. Oh, and high in flavor. This salad comes together in seconds but will keep you full for hours.

Pan-Roasted Corn and Tomato Salad

Roasted corn and tomato salad.

Mark says, “Corn is food, not just feed.”

Eat real (-ly delicious) food, and you’ll see real results. Basically, if you fill up on fresh vegetable salads, like this one loaded with garden gems like corn and tomatoes, you won’t have any room for chips or cookies, so you’ll look great in your shorts this summer.

Roasted Sweet Potato Salad With Black Beans and Chili Dressing

Light, fresh and mayonnaise-free sweet potato salad.

Mark says, “When you think of potato salad, you probably think mayo-laden and mushy. Think again.”

When you think about potato salads, you might also be wondering how long the mayonnaise has been sitting out at room temperature. With this twist on the picnic favorite, you won’t have to worry about that, plus you’ll get some extra protein from the black beans.
