I use chicken, salmon (other fish/seafood), occassionally turkey or pork (like a tenderloin), low fat cottage cheese, Greek yogurt (the last two are multipurpose, I use them as mayo, salad dressing, in smoothies, in pancakes, as sour cream, as dip, or plain with fruit), I eat a lot of black beans (in salads usually), whole grains have more protein than refined grains (like quinoa, steel cut oatmeal, whole grain breads), split peas/lentils, eggs/egg whites, nuts/nut butters, seeds.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. If you don't want to get bulky, lift heavy!
I can bench Nicole Richie, eat more than she does in a day before noon, I have a good 20 lbs on her but could still wear her pants.
