I recommend the software at www.dietwatch.com for tracking nutrient
intake.  It can help tune a diet to meet any personal intake goals.

I renamed the subject to higher protein rather than low carb, because
since this is a very low fat diet list, a diet that is both low carb
and very low fat would have to be upward of 70% calories protein and I
doubt that is what your advisor is recommending.  While nutrition
discussion is off-topic here, requesting higher protein/lower carb
recipes is perfectly OK.

I don't make many fussy dishes these days, some of my higher protein dishes
and snacks include:

Healthy Choice string cheese snacks: 8 grams protein, low fat, low

Sliced baked tofu stir fried with bottled szechuan or teriaki sauce.

Canned chili beans: 12 gram protein per cup

Eden soy extra soy milk: 10 grams protein per cup

Turtle Island Foods SuperBurgers (tempeh and wild rice burgers): 12
grams protein per patty
