Its.............................a long story.<br><br>
What were we talking about? Hungry teenage boys? Don't leave bags of cashews around for christsakes! Peanuts (and maybe pistachios) are less expensive!

Awesome ideas.....I am turning him loose on this thread and the kitchen is looking like a chemistry lab...keep them coming.....<br><br>
Oh and to return the favor in the suggestion department.....one of the most used appliances and best kitchen investments i have made has been a high quality VitaMix mixer. That thing is rev'ed up at least once a day.

I don't know what his tastebuds are like, but I love quinoa for something filling. It's not necessarily quick (15 min. cook time, plus chilling if you'll make a cold salad with it) but it's seriously easy, nutritious and delicious. Loads of protein, too!<br><br>
Smoothies are my life. If you mess around with certain combos, you can have all different types - ones that are extremely filling, ones that give you extra energy boosts, sweet ones, savoury ones, etc. I always put greens in my smoothies, like spinach, kale, celery, etc. Spinach tastes the best. Oh, and avocados are great in smoothies as well! They make it really creamy and luscious and mmm, oh so good. Plus the fat content will be great for a growing boy.<br><br>
Fruits and veggies, fruits and veggies, fruits and veggies! It is of course much easier to consume fruits and veggies when you actually enjoy them (I can't think of a single one I don't like), but it might be tougher for a young teen. Stir-fries, salads (my salads tend to be pretty eclectic, with a mixture of fruits and veggies and a bit of lime juice and sea salt for extra flavour, but if your boy has strange tastes then this will be a good idea, too. Very filling) and sandwiches loaded with veggies are pretty darn easy. Plus, as has already been mentioned, veggies AND dip - yum :)<br><br>
Oatmeal! Quick, easy, filling. When it's cooking I like to add frozen blackberries and fresh bananas. Sometimes I throw in some home-made granola, or nuts and seeds and the like. With a bit of brown sugar and some almond milk, it's basically dessert for breakfast. Awesome.<br><br>
ALMONDS ARE AMAZING. They keep me going at work, and I'm moving all day long! I usually throw some almonds, golden raisins, sunflower seeds, etc. together in a bag and take it to work with me. Carbs, protein, some sugar.. it's a good energy mix.<br><br>
Also, I just remembered something that I've been meaning to try - this is certainly not the healthiest idea but it sounds delicious. A grilled PB&J sandwich! Just put a bit of butter on the sides, grill it and you're good to go! It might be something fun to experiment with <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
Don't forget tofu - it's totally underrated. I love me some tofu. Which reminds me, I'm almost certain that a 13-year-old boy won't like this, but for anyone else who's been reading this, I love silken tofu (coconut) with a bit of chopped banana, some chopped craisins and a tiny pinch of cinnamon for a sweet, healthy snack.

I used to eat enormous amounts of bread when I was a teenager. That was always quick and filling.</div>

Especially when it's still warm.

this may sound a little weird, but my brothers used to eat it and they were on as many teams at school as possible: macaroni and cheese with baked beans on top. cold or hot, it didn't matter, but they'd eat bowlfuls of the stuff. it might be worth a shot? the only other thing I can remember them eating is pb and dill pickle sandwiches.

Keep some whole wheat pasta salad in the fridge. You can switch up the dressings. I like peanut sauce, ranch made with Greek yogurt and buttermilk, or a light vinaigrette.
