Not optimal. However, they do fit within the constraints of the Paleo foods. Great in a pinch. Helpful if you need more carb blocks and don't have much room in your stomach left from all the veggies.
Make whole, normal veggies and fruits a priority on your chosen foods. Have dried fruits available to fill the gaps when necessary. I keep some at work, so when I forget my fresh fruits/veggies, I have something around (that doesn't go bad quickly).

I still think that it's the possiblity of eating so many that's the culprit, as the glycemic load is actually quite low.
Food Name and Manufaturer: Apricots, dried Canada
GI (vs Glucose): 32 +/-
Serve Size: 60
Carb per Serve (g): 24.9
Glycemic Load: 8
Time Period of Test: 3h
Subjects Used in Test: Type 2
Reference: Wolever TMS, Vuksan V, Katzman Relle L, et al. Glycaemic index of fruits and fruit products in patients with diabetes. Int J Food Sci Nutr 1993; 43: 205-12.
Anything at 20 or above is considered high...at an 8, they are about the same as raw carrots.
