This free 37-page guide includes a collection of easy, inspired recipes and lifestyle tips so you can enjoy the good life…wherever you are!

Stop breaking promises to yourself… let’s make this YOUR time!
 
  • Did you ever wake up & wonder where the heck the years went?

 

  • Maybe the kids are gone, your life feels like a scene from Groundhog Day, and you’re going through as many changes as a teenager in puberty.

 

  • You can’t turn back time, you’re craving a life that looks and feels different. 
  • You tell yourself year after year that THIS will be when you finally get healthy or take that trip you’ve been dreaming of
  • But the midlife blahs seem to have taken over that wild, fun-loving spirit that’s deep inside.
  • You’ve spent years taking care of everyone else but now you’re left feeling tired and unsure how to take care of YOU!
 
Hear me loud and clear…
it’s time you said yes to you! 

Your best years aren't behind you my friend...

Your best years are NOW!

"I'm finally taking care of my health - the group was there to cheer me on and Julie is both your coach and your supportive friend at the same time"

Susan

Learning from Julie is life changing! To be honest, I’m so tired of trying to come up with ideas for healthy meals. I also don’t love to cook which makes it even more difficult! So Julie's class is perfect, I know what I need to purchase and all of the recipes sound easy but fantastic!

Paula

"Julie is inspirational! She really understands the many emotional and normal situations that cause us not to be true to ourselves. Julie helps us recognize how we can be better physically and emotionally. The result is our being happier. Thank you Julie."

KATHY M.

Excited to share my ❤️ of Italy on my upcoming Women’s Tuscany Tours! 🇮🇹 @juliehartigan - link in bio! ⤵️

Cannoli were at EVERY family party since I was a baby…including my wedding cake! 🇮🇹 @juliehartigan may sound Irish but this chef grew up w her Grandma’s Sunday Sauce in her baby bottle.

My grandpa’s family came to NYC from a tiny town called Sarno near Naples & he’d make weekly trips to Arthur Avenue for us 🥰

Thank you @roccospastry for making my Godmother’s 80th birthday party & family reunion feel just like my childhood!!
