Yes it is very healthy.
Though it has fat in it, it is what you would call "healthy fat" along with avocados, nuts and whatnot.
My suggestion for you would be to eat it with avocados and turkey ham with a little mustard.

the fiber in that is excellent and the amount of protein!
Yes, it's healthy just because of those 2 nutrients

Not really. First, "whole wheat" on a label means nothing. This comes down to labeling laws. "Whole GRAIN" does mean something – it means the item contains ground up parts of the whole entire wheat kernel (bran, germ, and endosperm). "Whole wheat" means nothing, it's just a marketing term. You could label a bucket of lard as "whole wheat".

So, this bread does contain a lot of fiber. But it's not clear that really does anything good for you, because it's just ground up  and mixed into the flour. The potential benefit of a true whole grain kernel  is that the tough fibrous bran outer covering slows down the time it takes your body to digest it, and get to the inner starch. When the inner starch is released, that floods your bloodstream with blood sugar.

THAT quick spike in blood sugar is the potential problem with eating carbs. Spiking your blood sugar like that, frequently, causes a range of problems over time … insulin resistance, obesity, diabetes. Eating unbroken grain kernels might not be so bad because the bran layer slows down the digestion process – but that's not what's in this flatbread. The flatbread contains ground up flour.

Ground up whole grains expose the starch, and that means quick and easy digestion, no matter how much ground up fiber is along for the ride.
