I love chinese, err hunan food. I eat moo goo gai pain and have great low blood sugars. It's full of veggies and nonfried chicken. It does have broth like sauce but it does not stick to the food like the thicker sauces and it is sooo good! The hunan restaurant I get my food from stir-fries much of it's entrees and that is a good thing.
I like whole grain pastas on occasion and they seem to slow down the process. I slowly converted to whole grains by using a brand of pasta called Ronzi as they have whole grain blends, not completely whole grain. One thing I have noticed is anything eaten in abundance with items that spike slowly still spike quick. Moderation is always the answer. Even items that don't spike will if eaten too much at once.
I notice if I keep my carbs in similar number for all 3 meals I have good BS readings whether they are 40 carbs a meal or 65 carbs a meal. It is consistency really that works for me. Peanut butter eaten with a 'normal' carb meal for me does not spike my BS, but add it to a meal that is already 60 carbs or so and wham, BS spikes for certain. I try to stay btw 50 and 70 with the normal around 60, and don't add anything to my meal that is 'sweet with sugar' on top of it or else I will not be 'controlling' my BS like I should. I am losing weight slowly, about 1-2 pounds a week and that isn't thrilling to me...lol...but I know it is best!
It's sometimes rough going, but I allow a slip up now and then and do much better overall because of it. I just want to get my experiementing past the point where I don't have to eat the same meal and remove this or add that and have a relatively good idea what goes in without having to test its spike!
If you wanna sing out, sing out. If you wanna be free, be free. There's a million things to be, you know that there are...
