Im finding it pretty difficult to get my needed calories. Im still 16 so i need about an extra 1000 a day just for growing. Please gimme as many high calorie, but clean foods as you can, and any other ideas on how to EAT!!
Almonds, cashews, walnuts, etc are very high in calories and a good source of healthy fat. Adding a handful of almonds or a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil to meals is a great way to up calories. You could also try adding ground flax seeds to your meals for some additional fibre, fat and a little protein. Pasta (perogies are great for packing in the cals) lean ground beef and cheese are good choices too. You can also make a pretty calorie dense/tasty bowl of oatmeal by adding some peanut butter or walnuts/cashews, berries, whey protein, banana, etc. PB and J sandwiches pack in the calories pretty well too.

Thanks for the tips guys.
What(besides trailmix, which is awesome) would be some good snack ideas?
Ground Flax mixed with Peanut butter and cocoa (tasty li'l fudgy things that are good and room temp and even better frozen)
veggies and PB
Load a plastic Baggie with a couple of scoops of protein and toss it in your backpack (coconut makes a nice addition to this too)
As I think of more, I'll post
I like to call this Heaven:
Heavy whipping cream

chocolate whey protein
Mix liquid with powders using a beater until stiff.
Smart Balance Peanut Butter
Grass fed beef (full fat)
think of the cookie monster, but substitute cookies for whole eggs
peanut butter, protein bars, shakes. Try this 100 grams ground oats(count them) in blender, 2 or 3 scoops protein powder, depending on your size, and 2 tbsp olive oil.

best bed time snack ever, take a graham cracker, and cover it with natty peanut butter.
I do 1.25 cups of oatmeal, 2 scoops of whey, 1-2 tbs of EVOO, .5 cup of cottage cheese, and 3-4 cups of milk. I put in whatever flavor of crystal light I have and down it. Tastes pretty good.
