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.

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.

"Week 5 of filming and hips getting rounder, thighs getting thicker," she captioned the picture. "#topchefmemories#eatingmywaythroughcolorado"

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!
