Hi fiber & hi carbs: If her daily diet has as little variation as you describe, then no she is not eating a balanced healthy diet. While she is getting a considerable amount of fiber, she is eating little protein or fat. Please explore with her the reasons for her self-imposed dietary restriction/ choices then suggest she may benefit from nutritionist counseling to best achieve her longterm dietary requirements.
