Zohra, assuming her cancer is estrogen-receptor positive (which most are), then the following list might be helpful:

Also, it is important, especially during treatment, to get enough protein, so in my opinion, fish, chicken and eggs are not only OK, but a good idea.

Somewhere I came across the advice to have half your plate be fruits and veggies, 1/4 some kind of protein and 1/4 some kind of starch. It works quite well. make the starch part something low-glycemic, like sweet potato, brown rice, quinoa, lentils etc.

Sorry to hear about your mum.

Here are two sites that might help you if your mum doesn't want to eat meat but still get the protein she needs.

1.  For "plant based" foods -

2. Combining foods to get complete protein without meat

Hope this helps
