You don't have to actually replace pasta & bread, you simply need to change to wholewheat versions and eat in moderation. 
I have two cups of brown rice or wholemeal pasta a day and brown pitta breads. 

I work to a simple method: I imagine my plate is split into 3 parts. 1 part is protein (chicken, turkey, beef), 2 part is carbs (as above, brown rice etc) 3 part is greens (salad, vegetables)

You can go far wrong with that. 

Fruit is high in natural sugars so should also be eaten in moderation. I have an apple a day and sometimes a banana.

My meals are pretty boring!! I only buy fresh food > chicken breast/turkey/salmon + brown rice/wholewheat pasta + broccoli/salads + oatmeal & a helluva lot of eggs!!!! Rather than looking at food labels I prefer to stay away from processed food as much as possible.

I eat small portions 6 times a day. Not because I have to, but because I feel less bloated/lethargic that way
