In brief: Plant based proteins

Most vegetarians are carbohydrate eaters.
Diabetics do better with less carbohydrates and more protein to follow a low GI diet. Use more beans, legumes, lentils, seeds, nuts as well as tofu. If you eat eggs and dairy, they can be a source of protein. Protein powders such as pea, chia and maca are great plant based proteins that can be added to soups, smoothies, yogurt. Eat protein w/every meal.

In brief: Consider raw vegan!

See Dr. Patel's excellent answer. Another approach to explore is a raw food vegan diet, at least for awhile, as Dr. Gabriel Cousens has observed many cases of Type 2 Diabetes reversing on such a diet! See http://www.
