Alot of leafy green almost have a 50/50 carb to protein ratio. If you eat big quantities of salads you'd be surprised how the protein can add up. Instead of an egg salad sandwich get rid of the bread and put your egg salad on a bed of greens. Also I didn't hear you mention legumes. Lentils, beans, these still have carbs, but also pack much more protein than grains. If you aren't afraid of some extra fat in your diet you can add nuts and seeds. These have less carb to protein ratio also. Also quinoa (keen wa) has more protein than most grain sources. I use it instead of rice alot.

As a veggie I am sure you have heard that we really dont need all the protein the body building industry likes to tout that we do. But for me both protein and fiber seem to do the most most me sticking to plan, and when I am conscientious and try to avoid starchy foods I do better with losing weight.
