Congratulations on deciding to make eating healthy a lifestyle rather than just a diet! I don't have much for recipes but I do have some ideas for protein sources:
Eggs (hard boiled as an addition to a green salad, scrambled or add them to stir fried vegetables, like stir fried rice without the rice, or egg whites which are almost pure protein).
Cottage Cheese
Natural peanut or almond butter (the kind without sugar added).
Tuna
Turkey
Fish like salmon, cod or tilapia.
Lean cuts of Pork like pork loin or chops.
Beans or legumes like black beans, navy beans or lentils. (Lentils have the highest protein content).
Cheese (but it can have lots of calories in a small amount).
Whey Protein powder or shakes (making the shakes with milk adds calories but also increased the protein).

Hope this helps and gives you some ideas.
