1 Gnome Mage
Pretty much all the crafting professions give 320 of a main stat.
Alchemy, Blacksmith and JC are probably the best and Alchemy is probably the easiest to level.
Mining is decent as well though you get no choice in your stat, you only get stamina.
Hate to burst your bubble, but JC-only gems are not just secondary stats, there are 320 STR JC-only gems that are available for Ret.
JC and Blacksmithing are actually the two best professions for a raiding Paladin. If you are Protection spec'd, you utilize the Haste or Mastery 480 gems from JC (depending on where you are in your gear progression). Blacksmithing offers 2 additional sockets, which are filled with normal Haste or Mastery gems. Running professions such as Enchanting or Alchemy would only buff Stamina or Strength, which are both sub-par to Haste/Mastery for tanking.
tl;dr JC and Blacksmithing are king for Prot Paladins.
Hate to burst your bubble, but JC is the worst crafting profession for ret because of opportunity cost.
I'd take LW's huge stam boost over JC for prot as well.
