I see some of you are heating various foods such as soup, etc. How are you heating them without cooking it? In the microwave? Stove top? Dehydrator?
I saw a raw pasta recipe that mentioned heating the yellow squash pasta in a ziplock bag with olive oil in the dehydrator. Doesn't the plastic melt into the food?

Some of us heat in the dehydrator. Others may warm the bowl or dish they are using with hot water With a bowl add hot water, let sit a minute, empty the water and then add the raw soup...hope this helps!
The sun is always good too... :)
Oh and the dehydrators tend not to go over 115 degrees...nothing will melt...
I don't use plastic bags but some people like the ease of preparation and clean up. We all find our own way of doing things!

If I heat anything it is in the dehydrator on a glass plate or sometimes on my *Teflex* sheets. I don't ever put any food in a plastic bag in my dehydrator.
I also have heated soups-double boiler method with a thermometor-& kept them to 105/110 degrees.
Another way I heat is to use my Vita-Mix when making soups & just blend until heated.
NEVER use the microwave....DH-does for some of his foods-he eats mostly RAw, but still some SAD.

Some people warm soups in a pot, on the stove just until your finger can sit in it comfortably without burning and it's said to be at a safe temp. then.
