Yup! The most common ways to heat things, depending on what they are, are in the dehydrator, whirling in a blender, putting into a warmed serving vessel, or briefly - and carefully! - heating to finger-warm on the stovetop. Like I said, it depends on what you're making... if I want warmed taco meat, I put it in the dehydrator... but if I want warm chocolate brazil nut milk, I whirl it in my blender until slightly warm and pour it into a mug that I warmed up with hot water.
Hope this helps!

i understand, but will this heated food still have all the vitamins and nutrients??

My understanding is that as long as you keep the temp under 118 or so (varies depending on who you ask), the enzymes and vitamins/minerals remain intact. So keep your dehydrator under 115, only whirl in the blender briefly, etc. Should be just fine.

Fuzzywater - that's correct. Any temps above 118 F will cook foods. Although there is talk that some folks initially set their dehydrators at a higher temp for a couple hours, then lower for the remainder of the time. I keep mine at about 105 F.
