The "full spectrum of amino acids" thing is a bit of a trumped up fear for some non-vegetarians. Any modern nutritionist will tell you you don't have to fill in some complex puzzle to get enough or the right kind of protein. There are some rarer vitamins it can be hard but not impossible to get, but that's it. Only a "salad only" vegetarian or person with other bad habits will have a hard time getting the basics.

Anyway, someone just cutting back doesn't have to worry at all, really.

Yep.  A bit of simple research (i.e. 2 minutes + Google) is all it takes to find plenty of very tasty combinations that will add up to a complete protein.
