Gordon Ramsay is counting his blessings following a scary cycling accident that could have ended way worse for the celebrity chef. In an Instagram post uploaded over the weekend, Ramsay revealed that he had been riding his bike in Connecticut when the accident occurred.

Despite looking like a "purple potato" due to a large bruise on his abdomen, the Food Stars host thankfully didn't break any bones or suffer any life-threatening injuries. While sharing his story, a visibly shaken up Ramsay was adamant about the importance of wearing a helmet. He even included a photo of his battered post-accident helmet in his Instagram post.

"Honestly, you've got to wear a helmet. I don't care how short the journey is. I don't care the fact that these helmets cost money. But they're crucial. Even with the kids, a short journey, they've got to wear a helmet. Now, I'm lucky to be standing here," he revealed.
