  • Padma Lakshmi, 49, posted a series of bikini photos and a video to Instagram.

  • Wearing a bright pink string bikini and a turquoise bikini, the Taste the Nation host looks super fit.

  • Padma's go-to workout while self-isolating has been jumping rope and she keeps her diet as close to nature as possible.

Padma Lakshmi, 49, is looking for a beach. The longtime host and judge of Bravo's Top Chef and executive producer and host of new Hulu series Taste the Nation is all suited up and set for the shore in her latest Instagram photo.

Padma added one quick question to the photo series: "Which way to the beach? 👀💪🏾." No matter where she goes, she's looking super fit in her bright pink string bikini. That flexed bicep emoji is spot on, but she's also clearly been flexing many more muscles. Her abs, legs, and everything are oh so toned.

Spoiler: Padma found the beach and also caught a very tasty looking crab at the water's edge. She shows off her net skills in addition to her strong abs in the Instagram video.

Which way to the beach? 👀💪🏾

Fans gushed about Padma's gorgeous shots in the comments: "As a fellow 49 year old, thanks for making 49 the new 20!(geez!) Also awesome net skills but show us how you cooked it!🙏🏼."

So, what are Padma's stay fit secrets? Well, they're not so secret. Padma's go-to sweat sesh during self-isolation has been jumping rope, she previously told Women's Health.

Padma's healthy diet also plays a role. "I think the best rule of thumb is to eat foods as close to nature as possible," she told Women's Health. That rings true from her go-to breakfast drink (unsweetened tea) to her preferred dessert (fruits like blackberries, watermelon, pomegranates, and tangerines).

Padma keeps cooking reasonable, too. "We cook one fresh meal a day in our home and that's usually for dinner," she told Women's Health. "I purposely cook extra so that I will have enough for lunch." In addition to her beach adventures, she's been serving up quite the quarantine cooking exploits on Instagram. She's whipped up chipotle chicken and rice or black-eyed peas over polenta. (Yum!)

Padma also admitted her fridge has a "pizza, quesadilla, and nachos drawer." Sounds like a delish beach snack to me.
