Eating The Failsafe Way ! My Cornish Pasties Recipe !

My Cornish Pasties !
I've started eating the failsafe way,its day 4 and I'm starting to feel a little better.The failsafe way of eating is no artificial colours, flavours, additives, preservatives,salicylates or amines.Sue Dengate is the author of Fedup and the Failsafe cookbook, which I'm reading at the moment, I would really recommend any one out there with any health problems read it, its available in the State library system. Well I'm into day 4 and I'm starting to feel that I may have a problem with salicylates, as I very rarely ever eat food with preservatives, colours etc. After reading what you can eat it is very limited,so being the resourceful person that Iam, I'm working out lots of failsafe meals that are suitable for me to eat. So yesterday I made cornish rolls, very similar to cornish pasties except the shape. I used brought Borgs organic wholemeal pastry so easier to make roll shapes.I used what I had available, finely diced potatoes & celery, lamb & beef mince from butchers with no preservatives a little bit of finely chopped parsley and Himalayan salt. Mixed well and rolled into roll shapes cook 35-40 minutes in a hot oven 190 degrees C Fan forced. The ones above I put into the freezer to keep fresh for latter in the week . I made 16 . When I make another batch I will add leek and swede. If any one is interested in reading more about the Failsafe way of eating please check it out at http://www.fedup.com.au/  it could make a big difference to you or a family members life. So I'll be adding different failsafe recipes on my blog that I create. If you have children that are hyperactive, grizzly,sulky, complaining of feeling sick a lot it could be worth checking out.Boy I wish I had of known about failsafe eating when my middle son was growing up . He would react badly to the colouring 102 tartrazine which is in so many foods it would send him off the rails and dairy products would make him cough, like he was having an asthma attack. A few doctors kept telling me he had asthma, but I knew he didn't as soon as I removed dairy products from his diet the coughing stopped.I believe he had and still has a problem with salicylates in his diet, once I'm symptom free I will discuss it with him. Its amazing just how food can affect some people.


  1. I hope it works for you. It does sometimes take a lot of years before we find what works but definatly worth trying different things until we do.


  2. As I've gone off dairy, artificial colors, dyes, flavors, and processed (comes-in-a-box-type) foods I have noticed a marked improvement in my arthritis. Diet can be a cure. (and to think of all the money I wasted at the doctor!) I've never heard of this group though so I will have to check them out.

    May your health continue to improve!

  3. An interesting read, as always Sherrie. I love following your journey. I must say those Pasties sound delicious!

  4. How nice that "good for you" is just plain "good."

  5. Ooh I am about to start Failsafe myself! Will be back to see how you are going!
