Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The Pump Energy Food has been serving health-minded Manhattanites high-protein fare since 1997, well before "low carb" became the mantra of the day. This collection of recipes and healthy-eating tips from the restaurant's owners is one of the stronger offerings on today's high-protein cookbook shelf: it explains how to make filling, flavorful foods and has a friendly, community feel to it, thanks in part to the numerous recipe introductions featuring commentary by the authors on customers' reactions to the dishes. The Kapelonises, who now operate four Pump restaurants in New York, list the "right foods" and the "wrong foods," and anyone who's been paying moderate attention to current diet crazes won't be surprised to find fish, chicken, turkey, egg whites, beans, nuts and brown rice on the "right" list, and white bread, white pasta, fried foods, butter and sugary beverages on the "wrong" list. Where the book shines is in its recipes, which cover appetizers, salads, main courses (meat and vegetarian), pizzas and burgers, salads, vegetable sides, shakes and juices, and the restaurant's famous "Super-Charged Plates." Although the book will be of most interest to athletes and other active people, its food—Ginger-Tofu Stir-Fry, Chicken with Spinach and Ricotta, Eggplant Carpaccio, Banana-Strawberry Soy Protein Shake, Pump Apple Pie—is so tasty, it'll appeal to all.

Having an extremely busy schedule as a personal fitness instructor, it limits my time and choices I have for food, and since I'm in manhattan quite often, I usually stop at the pump to get a QUICK yet HEALTHY, and I must say, TASTY MEAL. Now when I crave those meals at home, I can make them myself!

You know what? 3 simple words to discribe this book, which are very important qualities for ANY BOOK to me, inexpensive, great information, and it's cheery!

Format: Paperback
This is a good cookbook with tasty, simple recipes. I especially like the sample daily menus that show how to combine the recipes for 14 days of healthy, calorically reasonable eating. There's a sample menu for slimming down and one for bulking up.

Although not spelled out, the food recommendations follow the trendy glycemic index rules: Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, fish, and dairy are good, but pasta, potatoes, and white rice, in any quantity, are bad. If you think these foods can be part of a healthy diet, although a good addition to your library, you won't think this cookbook is complete. That's why I gave it 4 stars. On the other hand, if you think pasta, potatoes, and white rice are 'bad', this is a 5-STAR book for you.

This is a very good recipe book for those who are busy and have very little time for cooking. In addition, you need not worry about the nutritional content of the recipes; it is very healthy without the exaggerations of a health nut. Those who are image driven may be disappointed at this book because it has no illustrations of the foods in the recipe. Over all, if your concern about general health this is a great recipe book for you.

Format: Paperback
I'm a big fan of The Pump in New York City -- I eat there every chance I get. This book is a good companion for fans of The Pump or for anyone looking to cook easy-to-make, simple healthy foods that do not require egg yolks, salt, butter or oil or other unhealthful ingredients. I liked the little blurbs on the sides of the recipes by famous clientele of the Pump. This is from a "mom and pop" type of store -- so the book is not written too professional, its more like a friend talking to another friend -- not a bad thing at all. The Dynamite Chicken Pita (#42) is a must try.

I lived just a block away from The Pump restaurant in NYC and missed having such a great healthy joint to get food from! So I took to the internet and found this cookbook. A lot of the meals The Pump served were really simple, and it's easy to recreate many of them, but this book helps you go a little farther and includes a lot of items I never tried or saw in the restaurant.
With a little bit of creativity you could make some of these recipes in a crockpot or ricecooker and make a lot and freeze portions etc.
This book has lots of good info and ideas, but it is light on high quality pictures.
