I have found that it depends on how you react to different foods because of both your diabetes and gastroparesis. I started with plain soft foods and progressed from there. Try the same food several times to get a feel for it. The time of day you eat will make a difference as well as activity level. Gastro is a tuff complication and it is hard to find foods that work for you. Try Crystal Saltrelli's web site and on Facebook. Good luck.

well i had stuffed shells last night with a piece of sausage and a salad and did a 4 hour combo bolus of 45/55 and woke up with a 81

Those are good numbers. If you have leftovers it would be good to check to see if they repeat. Keep on trying and good luck!

i went to bed at 90 last night and woke up with a 231, very strange

This happens to me often. I think it is because of the delayed digestion.

yeah i fell asleep about 2 hours or so after i ate
