    No idea how well the Peltiers work, but try out the styrofoam box first. If your ice packs don't completely freeze overnight, get two sets and alternate between them.

    This isn't entirely relevant to the conversation at hand but it sure is to the title and the OP.

    Get yourself some dried fruit. Get yourself some regular fruit too. If you're on the road a lot you need easy food that's nutritious. Dried fruit is not only ludicrously good for bowel function but is in fact de-fucking-licious. Banana [both in chips and strips], apple, mango, peach, dates, etc etc. Bring nuts [in a little baggy or tupperware] and other little healthy snackables like that, you need to keep your energy up especially if you're trying to get a good start on training.

    Cool! Do the dried fruits have the same nutritional benefits as their moister brethren?

    Mostly. They're a lot more calorie dense (they'll make you less full for the same amount of calories), so that's why most "diet" plans recommend not eating them, but if you're gaining, go for it.

    This is true. They're naturally less voluminous than their hydrated counterparts so you'll probably be tempted to eat more of them. However they're jam-packed with fibre so if you're looking for a healthy snack [and if you're wanting to get strong no doubt you are] then that and nuts should be invested in. Make yourself one hella wicked trail mix.
