One of the most influential keys to weightloss is being mindful in the kitchen. Simple strategies such as healthy snacking, nutrient-dense meals, and being hydrated all play an important role in weightloss. If meal prepping ahead of time keeps you in a 200-400 calorie deficit, then it can definitely help with weightloss. However, keep a close eye to make sure each meal has proper amounts of complex carbohydrates, protein, healthy fats, and antioxidants. This can also help reduce late-night cravings and binge eating on the weekends.
They are just as tasty at room temperature, as they are fresh out of the oven from roasting! It is totally up to your personal preference. Think of the meal prep as a grain salad with cooked vegetables - so you can pop it in the microwave for a few minutes, or the oven in aluminum foil for 10 minutes, or eat it like it is. All ways lead to deliciousness!
