We all love to wine and dine, and with that pleasure is the need to workout and make sure we don’t fall into a dangerous gluttony cycle. That’s where Bikini Lifestyles: Wine, Dine and Workout comes in handy. Debuting April 15 on PBS, the show will focus on eating healthy, feeling better and working out.
Internationally acclaimed cookbook author Susan Irby, known around the world as The Bikini Chef, will team up with personalities Denice Fladeboe and Steve Valentine as hosts of the program. The six-episode, half-hour series heads into the kitchens of celebrity chefs to cook healthy, delicious “bikini cuisine”, i.e., foods that make you look and feel confident. When the wining and dining is over, the show’s entertaining and energetic hosts then workout with top fitness experts, whether that means heading to the gym, doing Pilates, or simply getting fit outdoors.
Susan, Denice and Steve will share fashions from internationally acclaimed designers to finish off the show with a champagne toast sending “gourmet wishes and flattering waistlines.” This is the show to watch for gourmet bikini recipes, kitchen and fitness tips…all the tools you need to live your very own Bikini Lifestyle.
