No combo I'm aware of, but if your insulin sensitive, there really is no problem, the spike is all part of it, it is the intensity and duration of the spike which counts.
If you're not eating flour, grains or sugar and other sweetners, then you shouldn't have a problem, unless you juice a big load of fruit.

Fat, acid, and fiber seem to minimize peak blood glucose (good) but insulin is affected by other factors too.
A lot of cuisines recommend a course sequence:
1) raw or pickled vegetables (acid + fiber)
2) meat/eggs/fish with non-starch roasted/sauteed vegetables (fat + fiber)
3) starch or fruit as a palate cleanser
Might be placebo but I seem to digest well when I do this.
I don't eat / add (refined) sugar on a regular basis, there's some in my dark chocolate, no wheat, very few rice, even less other grains, I'd say none actually, maybe too much fruit at times but never juiced, just whole or pulverated as part of a smoothie. Do eat small portions of sweet potato couple times a week.
