How would you say "To cook is to eat"?

"Готувати — це їсти", but it doesn't make much sense to me :)

A few more examples with the same structure:

"To sleep is to rest" "Спати — це відпочивати"

"To breathe is to live" "Дихати — це жити"

"To cook and eat" should be accepted. "To cook and to eat" sounds unnatural in most sentences. (i.e., "I want to cook and eat some fish" vs "I want to cook and to eat some fish"
