I too struggle with grain based carbs. You might try spaghetti squash in place of pasta. Spaghetti squash has carbs too, but not so many as pasta. One thing I do often is to eat the stuff I used to put in a sandwich, but I skip the bread. Egg salad or tuna salad right out of the bowl or wrapped in a leaf of lettuce is actually rather filling and loaded with protein. If you need bread you might look for one that is low calorie and high in protein. Some of the "wraps" on the market might help your numbers, the Flat Out brand have 9 grams of protein and are 90-110 calories depending on the flavor. Another thing you probably need to look at is high protein snacks, like Greek yogurt, soy nuts, nuts in general, beef jerky etc etc.
