as you should anytime you introduce new foods to your diet be sure to test after eating as YMMV
here's a good place to start:

what I had done some time ago was to test my Blood Glucose (BG) levels for every food that I usually ate. I wrote that proceedure into a discussion which you may find here ~ From that I developed a 3 ring binder which had the results of the testing within, so I didn't forget what the results were. It has been quite useful to me in determining how a food or drink item will or won't "play nice" with my metabolism. That I would suggest may be a way to proceed.

There are slow and fast carbs that you can eat. The fast carbs, breads, rice, pasta, juice especially orange juice are not good for you they will cause a spike faster than the slow carbs. Slow carbs such as green leafy veggies, fruits are good for you. The best thing to do is buy a diabetic book. I have several of the Everything You Need To Know books for diabetes, meal planning etc. I got them when I was first diagnosed and they were the best help ever. Eating carbs with some fiber and protein is always the better thing to do.

You also have to self educate yourself because not everyone can eat the same things and not get a high. For instance, I can't have orange juice or eat an entire orange I can have one section from time to time.
