My $0.02, from what I read, our best meters are accurate only within 20%. and that's huge.
Today my morning FBG = 115. I drank my coffee (2 shots of nespresso, three Tbls HC, three Tbls Torani SF, three oz. unsweetened soy milk) and at 30 min my BG = 103, at 60 min BG = 100
The DP was probably at work but I doubt the differences in those readings were statistically significant. It seems to me the meter is good for detecting spikes but of limited value for the ten, or so, times/day I test.
I'm relying on my A1c and lipid results on Aug. 15th to tell me how good my dramatic diet shift will have been for the previous 115 days. If my A1c is not very near 5.0 with reasonable lipids I will have to try some different, more stringent, tactics.

It only makes sense that a g of carb requires a response from our pancreas but if no spikes occur because of small portion size are we still damaging our bodies?

What seems to be the salient point of this entire thread is (from John),... "The pancreas is dying." Yes, all of our organs begin to die at birth, but more so and faster for us as diabetics, especially if we allow BGs over a certain amount (80, 88, 120, 140,.. whichever you choose to believe). So, although our BGs may not rise dramatically after a cherry or two (that we know of), we will certainly need to produce a lot more insulin than a bowl of spinach would require. The trick is to not have to. Preserving the pancreas for as long as possible is key.
