The rabbits at my house eat whatever they please, too. People also say garlic plants will repel them, but rabbits are true pests and the best way to control them is to exclude them with a fence. Another thing you can try although people report mixed results, is the repellent sprays. These are available commercially or you can make your own using a red pepper and/or garlic base.
