I agree that a lot of experimentation has to be done and will be done.
I have been a vegetarian (lacto) all my life and eat spicy food and has
seen no problem with protein needs. My family is also lacto vegetarian.
Most of my neighbors think we save a lot of money by being a vegetarian.

Also most of the people in India are
vegetarians and even those who eat meat only eat may be once a week and
some only once a month, because meat is very expensive. Also on all holy
days of Hinduism, no one eats meat.  I have known several diabetics and
have not seen any problem with vegetarian food.
