Many recommend nuts of some sort, in moderation, as they have good fats in them and protein. I have not tried to add that too much, as they are so high in calorie and I hate to just eat a few.
Dairy products have a fair amount of protein. IE I am eating a 90 calorie splenda sweetened yogurt with 5 grams of protein and 3 grams fiber and 20% calcium. So I might recommend some skim milk dairy products, yes, even some low fat cheeses, or a small amount of cheese.

Have you tried quinoa - I got it at Costco a 4lb bag for approx. $9.00. It is protein, I have it with vegetables. It's filling and quite tasty. I added about 1tsp of minced garlic when I made it the other day.
Sorry can't help you w/snacks - I don't snack much, if I get hungry mid-day I'll grab a piece of fruit or grapes. Sometimes a stalk of celery w/laughing cow cheese spread on it.
