Default Considering low carb, vegetarian - advice?

Hey chicks, I'm pretty much a seasoned calorie counter, but I've been wondering if cutting out some of the carbs from my diet would improve my progress as I lose weight very slowly. Like.. maybe a pound loss per fortnight if I work at it.
I'm a strict vegetarian, and I don't like to eat cheese/milk.. I'm not really a vegan because I eat free range eggs. Eggs are probably the one thing stopping me from going properly vegan because I love them, haha.

So, understandably, most of my diet seems to consist of carbs. On a typical day, my food goes something like.. cornflakes with soy milk for breakfast, a home-made egg sandwich for lunch (or homemade veggie soup, but usually the sandwich), and pasta with veggie mince bolognese or jacket potatoes for dinner. Every meal is busting with carbs, haha. So, does anyone have an idea what I can swap in to cut back on some carbs?

Thanks!
