why DE comer, why not para comer? and if de means normally "of" or something like that, why is it used here?

It's an expression. Ex: it's time to = está na hora DE.

I agree, you are a lifesaver Palenrique! My mother is a brazilian-born American, but she's forgotten the majority of what portuguese she knew...that's where you come in. :) lol Muito obrigado!
