Editorial Reviews

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.

Library Journal
The Pump Energy Food restaurants in New York City have become a mecca for athletes, trainers, dancers, and dieters. This cookbook authored by the chain's founders features a variety of excellent recipes and sample menus for those who want to increase energy, lose weight, or build muscle mass. Relying heavily on grains and vegetables, but also using lean meats and poultry, these recipes allow for larger portions than usual. Nevertheless, the tasty dishes will also appeal to nondieters.

    Definitely worth it! This book is great!

    As an avid runner, fueling up with healthy foods is very important to me. The Pump Energy Food book does this perfectly with interesting and delicious recipes that provide nutrients in ways healthier than the usual and/or more unique. Everything I have cooked from this book has been absolutely fantastic! I've even got my family hooked on these foods. I only wish I could eat at the actually restaurant!

    I have been to the 'Pump' restaurants in New York City and was so happy that they published this cookbook. You can make your favorite healthy dishes at home. The recipes are easy and tasty with nutritional information provided. This is a cookbook of REAL health food everything is made with fresh produce, low-fat cheeses and low-fat proteins. After you make a few meals with these recipes you will feel energized and ready to face anything.

    Diet with food you enjoy

    As a frequent patron of the Pump restaurants in New York, I've found 'The Pump Energy Food,' to be inspiring and beneficial. It's especially convenient for someone like me, a resident of New Jersey, who can now duplicate the food in my own home at any time. The authors understand important realities rarely acknowledged in other books. For example, to maintain a healthy diet over a lifetime, you must enjoy the food you eat. Pump food depends on a variety of strategies to make every recipe tasty. Also, knowing that real people don't always find themselves in ideal eating situations, they offer tips on making the best of what's available at ballgames, parties, and other venues. For those who wish to focus their food, the recipes are marked as to which are especially useful for giving you energy, keeping you fit, reducing your weight, and building muscle. And I love those shakes. I recommend the book for anyone who wants good, healthy food, which is why I plan to purchase copies as gifts.

    Amazing Food!

    I am so excited that my favorite restaurant is finally making its recipes available. I've been eating at Pump for five years and their food always makes me feel great.
