Is it ok to reheat pearl barley?

I like making my own rice based meals, but would like to make more at a time and reheat. I am the only vegetarian in a house of meat eaters. So things I can make in advance are a big help.
I have been thinking that using barley instead could be the answer?

As long as they are cooled and stored properly after cooking then yes it's fine - rice,buckwheat,pasta, barley are all good options and couscous is a good instant one - super quick to prepare

I was pretty sure reheating rice was a bad idea?

As long as it has been cooled and stored properly and then reheated until piping hot it's fine - it's when you leave it to cool down slowly or it's held at temperatures that let the bacteria multiply that you have to worry

I've reheated rice literally hundreds of times and never had an issue.
Pearl barley is also fine to reheat
