The gorgeous "Top Chef" host took to Instagram on Thursday night to share a bikini photo of her "rounder" and "thicker" body as she takes a break from filming the upcoming season of the Bravo cooking competition.
In the picture, Lakshmi dons a teeny royal blue bikini poolside at the Telluride Ski Resort in Colorado. Throwing up a peace sign and winking into the sun, the 46-year-old stunner said she's "eating her way through Colorado" as she hits the fifth week of filming.

A quick yoga session to connect to myself and this beautiful place (yoga is my ultimate travel trick to stay in shape, it requires no equipment or extra clothing and if you are really missing your yoga mat, you can always grab a towel and wet it in the place where your hands and feet would go 👌🏻)
my question is... how do I live here forever?

As a host and judge on "Top Chef," Lakshmi naturally eats a ton of food while filming for the show, and in the caption of her Instagram post, she says she's filled out a bit since the beginning of the season.
Not only does Lakshmi looks absolutely incredible, but she also is braving the elements by stepping outside in a bikini in Colorado. Despite it being June, you can still see snow covering the mountains behind her, and there's nobody else sitting around enjoying the pool.
She's a dare devil, that Padma Lakshmi!
